This, of course, isn’t finished, but I couldn’t resist showing you our very anally organised entry way.
Tada! Isn’t magnolia your FAVOURITE?! Tee hee.
When we moved in we had a rather ‘attractive’, bulky and unpainted MDF raditator cover that took up most of the space in our entryway. It did however make a good place to throw your keys/phone/mail on.
We quickly moved it out to the shed for me to use for potting plants on and came up with a new entryway scheme.
Firstly we got rid of our paper calender. I love having a whiteboard where we can physically wipe out the days when they are done! This was this attractive number from Staples (but we DID not pay that price somehow…obviously I must have fluttered my eyelashes), and I used black electrical tape to cover the metal edging to make it less officey. You could of course spray it, but it was raining…and I wanted it up!
We also bought a pack of wall files and spaced them out on the wall. We labelled them using our Dymo. I have one, P has one and we have bottom one for seasonal items (currently full of gloves and hats). We also hung a hook on the wall behind the door (opposite this wall) to hang our keys on.
Also may I draw your attention to our original 60’s doorbell? P and Papa Pigeon got it working and wired back in over christmas. It only dings (rather than ding donging) but I love having something original to the house!
I promise to show it to you this space again when it is finally finished!
