Thinking about the New Year, I am plotting a redesign of my entryway. I have a relatively large space which gets overrun with bags, shoes and jackets. Then, to add to the mayhem, I have random toys, mail and keys to deal with. I do have a lovely Pottery Barn pin-board with hooks…but it just doesn’t cut it. There is mess everywhere. Okay, I admit I do have to train the troops better…they are all slobs!
I rather like the idea pictured above. The backpack issue would be resolved, and there are baskets for all the junk that accumulates on my tiny table near the door. Some adaptations to the bench would mean I could have a station for shoes also. The height is perfect for Peanut and Button….no excuses about not being able to reach! To top it off (sorry for the pun) the shelf on top is perfect for me to add a little of my taste with a display for the season (I do like to change things up between summer and winter).
Of course I have the hardest job to do first – getting Hubby to change the paint color as I really dislike the one we just put on…you know, the one I chose…wish me luck!
