and now that the christmas stuff is finally packed away (the last of it was boxed up last night) things just feel empty and bare in our entry. since we moved in almost two years ago, we never really paid much attention to that area so it is long overdo for
problem number one, our coat closet is about 30 feet from our front door, so coats always end up draped over chairs (yes i am talking to you matt) or thrown over the coach. this drives me insane, like seriously drives me mad.
so i can finally retire from coat check girl (and matt can stop hearing me complain about coats) we need some type of coat rack or coat hooks closer to the door.
problem number 2, shoes. at first we had nothing for shoes, and then we bought a shoe tray, which i have learned is useless, and only encourages peoples (matt and i) to leave our shoes on said show tray instead of putting them away. the number of shoes by the door has now only doubled since the shoe tray appeared.
so we need some type of shoe storage, that is attractive and conceals are shoes.
problem number 3, currently we use a short bookshelf as our "entry table" it is the right height about 33'' but is not long enough and feels weighted down compared the the right side of the room.
i won't be able to tackle everything this weekend, since our day tomorrow is dedicated to wedding appointments. but i plan on trying to make some changes this weekend, since my parents will be here next weekend and then trying to get everything finished by the end of the month.
here are a few of my inspirations, (thank you pinterest!)
this weekend i plan on tackling the coat situation, and hopefully start brainstorming ideas for shoe management.
next week i will share with everyone what i came up with! have a great weekend and stay warm!
