The GLTC Pigeonhole Wall Shelf {The most versatile shelf in the world}

So. When I wrote this post, I spent the next half an hour humming Prince’s ‘Most Beautiful Girl In The World’ — *replace actual lyrics for the above title and you’ll see where I’m coming from*.

But the Pigeonhole Wall Shelf from GLTC is exactly that.

The most versatile shelf.

My boy had originally bagged it for his workshop but he, reluctantly, had to agree that it was far too nice for that.

It also works well in an office; I had it firmly in my sights for my she-shed but had to concede that it’s invaluable in another spot in our home.

The Pigeonhole Wall Shelf was totally made for the bathroom.

A great, wall-hung, storage solution for all those bits and bobs.

Three handy little hooks for towels, wash-bags and other bathroom essentials.

For me, essentials would mean shower-gel or a  sponge; for my two littles it means bath buckets (naturally).

It has four little pigeonhole shelves (I guess the clue is in the name) that are nice and deep and the perfect size for shampoos, ear-buds, talc and all your toothbrushing paraphernalia.

And as it’s finished in pristine white, it will fit in nicely in most bathrooms.

But whilst, it is perfect for the bathroom, it’s also perfect storage for kids’ bedrooms.

Again, those little pigeonholes are just made for kids’ books and their various other treasures.

It’s surprising how much you can stuff into a relatively small space.

The Pigeonhole Wall Shelf was designed with kids in mind.

The boys love the little hooks especially.

I mean, every dinosaur needs somewhere to hang up his costume up, right?

And I like the fact that it’s a neat place to pop all the tiny books that we seem to have accumulated. They don’t fit so well in to the larger book case in the boys’ room, but the Pigeonhole Wall Shelf  is perfect.

So you could be totally forgiven for thinking that this is where the little shelf ended up.

But no.

This versatile little unit is currently residing in our hall.

Although, I use the term ‘hall’ very loosely.

In our little cottage, the room off the front door is approximately 2 foot square. More like a vestibule than a hallway, but hey. Beggars can’t be choosers.

And how much time do you spend hanging out in the hall anyway??

Because it’s such a small space, traditional coat hooks just didn’t work. They ended up being swamped in a mountain of coats, bags, hats and scarves; which sometimes made opening the door quite tricky.

And there literally isn’t enough floor space for a person and a floor-standing storage unit.

But the wall-mounted pigeonhole shelf is perfect.

The perfect solution for a small hallway.

It’s shallow enough to sit on the wall without getting in the way of the front door and it has just enough storage for all the essentials.

Scarves and hats — plus keys, phones, mail and other odds-and-sods — are right at home in the little pigeonholes, whilst coats and bags take up residence on the hooks.

To say I’m pleased would be an understatement.

Instead of opening the front door to be greeted by a tangled and unsightly forest of coats, the door now opens up to reveal a neat and stylish little room.

So you see, I really wasn’t exaggerating when I said that the GLTC Pigeonhole Wall Shelf is the most versatile shelf in the world.

And now you’ll have that Prince song in your head for the rest of the day too.

You’re welcome.

This fabulous little shelf usually retails at £80 but it’s currently on offer at a bargainous £32! Hurry, hurry, hurry!! This is one you won’t want to miss out on.

I am proud to be a GLTC testing team member but all thoughts, words and images, as ever, are entirely my own.

    I love this!! Huge fan of the larger pigeon holes and hooks but this is a dream for smaller spaces. Total bargain, too!

      It’s amazing!! I literally never thought we’d find anything to fit the space behind the front door — it’s so tiny. But the pigeonhole shelf is perfect :) Chuffed to bits with it!

    That shelf is the perfect thing for hallways or cloakrooms. I used to live in the middle of nowhere when I was little and we had a boot room that was totally abandoned in terms of interior design1


    • 23rd January 2017 / 2:02 pm

      Yep — I dream of a boot room. It’s on the ‘dream-house’ wish list. I love our cottage but I sometimes wish it had a little bit more space for the more mundane things in life. When you have loads of room, clever storage isn’t such a priority is it?!! LOL!! xx

    Such a brilliant shelf, and like you say, so versatile- I could always give house room to GLTC furniture! x

    • 23rd January 2017 / 12:55 pm

      It’s amazing Becky — has totally sorted a really annoying corner of our home. GLTC products are definitely more than just for kids aren’t they? :)

  4. 18th January 2017 / 5:43 pm

    Oh, I love this! I actually got up from my chair and walked to my utility to see if it would fit behind the door. Basically, you need to have one in each of those rooms, Caro….It’s be rude not too! Poor monkey (is that one of those you have to buy ten of in case the boys lose one because they’ve had it since they were a day old) needs a pidgeon hole….

    I’m a massive fan of GLTC…Our gorgeous little red wooden cooker is steadily moving round to our younger relatives and friends.

    Pinning it! #HOMESENSE

    • 23rd January 2017 / 12:26 pm

      And did it fit?????!! I bet it did!! ;) And yes. I agree. I think it should be compulsory that all homes have at least one of these!! ;)

      • 23rd January 2017 / 12:56 pm

        Just spotted your reply and noticed my complete #brainfart with #homesense instead of #homeetc! Close but no cigar ;

        • 23rd January 2017 / 3:14 pm

          Haha!! Just goes to show how much I pay attention — I’m so used to seeing the word HomsSense linked with Home Etc that I didn’t even notice!! LOL!!

  5. 19th January 2017 / 10:13 am

    What an incredibly versatile little shelf! I like its use as somewhere to store hats and gloves etc at this time of year- they’re ALWAYS losing those things!! #HomeEtc

    • 23rd January 2017 / 11:48 am

      Fab isn’t it? I never thought we’d find something compact enough to fit our tiny hallway — so pleased with it :)

  6. 19th January 2017 / 1:37 pm

    Oh I love GLTC and their clever clever storage! Our hall is really narrow and I’ve never managed to find something that doesn’t get knocked off the wall every time we come home, this could well be the end of my search! #HomeEtc

    • 21st January 2017 / 6:56 pm

      I thought I’d NEVER find anything to fit our tiny hallway Catherine!! I’m chuffed to bits with this!! It’s very shallow — but you can fit loads in it! :) Would highly recommend :)

  7. 19th January 2017 / 9:36 pm

    This is great, so versatile! And thanks for the ear worm, I LOVE that song! (and anything else by Prince, actually) xx #HomeEtc

    • 21st January 2017 / 3:05 pm

      It’s fab. Made such a difference! :) And same — he was my absolute musical hero xx

  8. 20th January 2017 / 12:51 pm

    I do indeed have that song in my head now lady! 😂 I love this shelf, actually I think a lot of GLTC stuff is so versatile, I often browse there even when I have a grown-up project in mind! I love all the bright colours of your styling against the white, looks fab. Now thinking do I have space for one somewhere at that price…?

    • 23rd January 2017 / 11:47 am

      Haha!! It’s an ear-worm, that’s for sure! :) I think GLTC products are amazing…. definitely more than just for kids!! ;)

  9. 21st January 2017 / 7:04 pm

    You’ve got that song in my head now! I LOVE this shelf, I’ve been looking for something like this for Tyler’s room. I can’t believe it’s only £32 – off to check it out now! x

    • 23rd January 2017 / 11:42 am

      Would highly, highly recommend it — particularly at that price!! Absolute bargain! :)

  10. 23rd January 2017 / 11:49 am

    Love the ways you’ve styled it! I think my favourite is the bathroom. If it was mine I’d be tempted to have it filled with craft things etc x #HomeEtc

    • 23rd January 2017 / 3:27 pm

      Ah thanks chickie. And yes. Craft things was the first thought!!! I REALLY want it in my she-shed!!!! But had to admit that it’s best placed in our hall. It’s made a nightmare little space much more manageable. I’m so pleased with the difference it’s made! :)

  11. 23rd January 2017 / 9:28 pm

    Well you’ve certainly made good use of that. I have to say I’m oohing and aahing a bit at all those delicious little articles of clothing and toys. I remember those days. You clearly have an orange boy and a blue boy. Great post. #HomeEtc

    • 24th January 2017 / 7:43 pm

      Haha!! Thanks Nicky! And funnily enough, no, we have a green boy and a blue boy usually!!! LOL!! But orange makes a nice change!!! :)

    • 24th January 2017 / 7:28 pm

      They really do, don’t they? SO brilliantly versatile — and far too good just to be contained in a kid’s room! :)

  12. 24th January 2017 / 10:33 pm

    Thanks for the ear worm, although have had a lot worse! And it does look a versatile little unit. Every bathroom-hallway-kidsroom-office-workshop should have one :)

    • 10th February 2017 / 6:57 pm

      Can’t believe I’m only just replying to this!!! I’m SO behind on everything!! Hope you’re well lovely!! Not heard from you for a couple of weeks — are you OK? xx

      • 15th February 2017 / 8:31 pm

        Yes I’m good thanks – swamped at work – and doing that whole reading emails and replying in my head too xx

        • 16th February 2017 / 10:26 am

          I do that CONSTANTLY. Especially to text messages — my poor BFF thinks I’ve abandoned her most of the time!!

  13. 25th January 2017 / 8:36 am

    Ohh I love this, it is very versatile indeed.
    And how neat is your house? If I had that shelf in mine it’d be full of junk! It looks great in the bathroom, perfect for all those bits and pieces

    • 10th February 2017 / 6:57 pm

      Haha!! Aaaah the beauty of a styled shot!! What you don’t see is the deluge of STUFF that surrounds the photo!!! LOL!! ;)

  14. 25th January 2017 / 11:59 am

    I love this post, what a great piece of furniture. It would be fab as a Fancy Dress station in our house as well but I think I would like 2 for the younger 2 at their height in the hallway and that way no arguments over lost hats, coats in the mornings xx

    • 10th February 2017 / 7:12 pm

      YES!!!! A fancy dress station!!! That’s a fab idea!! We’ve got SO much fancy dress now, it’s ridiculous!! I’ve always had lots of it — wigs and sparkly things for festivals etc — but now, since we’ve had the boys, we’ve got a bazillion superhero costumes!! :)
