Hope everyone is having a good week and for those out on the east coast, I’ve been thinking about you all and hoping you are safe!!
Today, I’ve been looking for some inspiration out on the web for fixing up our entryway. As the weather has taken a huge turn, we suddenly have this pile of coats, scarves, and boots by the door and on our dining room chairs. So I’ve decided it’s time to make a home for this stuff –
Yeahhhh, life isn’t all roses and magazine poses around here. 🙂 This is real folks and it’s actually not as bad as usual…yet. We do have a tiny, – okay rather small wooden coat rack (if you can call it that) by our front door.
I like this little rack but everything falls off of those peg hooks and into the floor. Case in point, you can see that there is nothing hanging on it now.
So I’m on the hunt for some inspiration out on the web and I’m sharing with you because life is better when you have someone to swoon with!
First you should know that we have a very small and narrow entry. Sorry for the dark pics but I couldn’t get these in before it got dark out.
And now on to the beautiful pictures that we can drool over! 😛
I love this entryway over at 320 Sycamore. The bench was actually a coffee table that they cut in half! Brilliant!
And Jenna Sue carved out a little entryway niche with a board and hooks. Really like the simplicity of this.
Here’s an idea from Better Homes & Gardens to carve out a little area. I can just see my scarves in that basket under the seat.
Love the storage on the wall here. And how about that mirror on the back wall!
Here is an idea for a small entryway. The coat rack adds a classy traditional look.
I would love to have a space dedicated for a mudroom, but we just don’t have that in our home and I’m okay with that. I can get creative with the space in our garage! (one of these days!) But for now, I plan to find a few things this week to create an entryway in our home and find a space for all our “stuff”!
I hope to add a bigger better hook rack, a small mirror, a basket or two and some sort of seating area that doesn’t take up all the space in the foyer.
Do you have a space dedicated in your home for all your stuff? Anyone limited on space but manage to carve out a spot to welcome visitors and friends?
