My dad used this valet daily. Change, wallet, keys on top...this was also where he kept his belts. The belts that I had to choose from when I royally messed up. Yep, I was spanked as a kid - my brother & sister were spanked too. I know people freak out about it now, but I believe it was a necessary tool in my parents arsenal when it came to me & my brother. My sister, not so much - she was usually framed and I'm still apologizing for some of my stunts. But I digress....he also kept his shoe polish kit underneath. Of course, it looked a whole lot different then. Mom put a lot of work into this & totally refurbished it for me. She had to take it apart to slipcover the back and seat & painted it. She did a great job - I love you, Mom!
I love that it offers a hanger, tray & a seat!! Of course, I have my stuff all over it but it's there if you really wanted to use it.
This got bumped out of the corner and it's now floating under the window. I'll have to find a new place for it..good luck with that!
Here are a couple of recent finds:
I've got to share this...a birthday card my sister gave me a few years ago that still makes me laugh..
