In the meantime, I have a bunch of projects from this place that I haven't gotten around to sharing yet, the first of which is our entryway mini-makeover.
See, our entryway is a bit of a non-event. It opens to a long, dark hallway, and it's the go-to place for dumping shoes, jackets, bags and bike gear, so it has never been my favorite space. When we first moved in, I hung a little shelf and a row of hooks, but the hooks didn't hold all our stuff very well, and I knew we could make it more efficient.
I will admit upfront that I pretty much just followed direction on this one, so I can't give you a step-by-step tutorial sadly. It did involve some of this...
big boy room and our fireplace. My Dad thought I should have left the wood white, and much as I hate to admit it, I do think he was right. (If we weren't moving, I'd repaint it - it would look more built-in if it matched the door trim.)
When we were done, we had a much more efficient and organized space.
I also added a boot tray to coral what would otherwise be a big pile of shoes, and the ledge is now home to an original oil painting that I don't have a better place for.
