Soap Dish Shelf

Monday, April 16, 2007

I stumbled across this idea for soap dish shelves on Martha's recently revamped website. The project appeared in Martha Stewart Living almost eight years ago, but unlike many of Marty's "Good Things" I haven't ever seen this idea in another magazine or book. It's a cute storage solution — perfect for resting keys by the door. I also love the voice of Martha towards the end, "Don't forgo a metal soap dish because it looks too dirty or corroded to salvage: If you really like its shape or design, you can clean it up with metal polish or have it replated." There's a spirit of optimism in that sentence, which is one of the reasons I've always liked Martha. Despite all the awful things people may say about Marty, I think there is something almost stubbornly hopeful about her world-view. Anyone who could put the kind of care she does into a line of home products for Kmart must really believe that those little details count and that they might actually makes people's lives better.
