I've been trying to come up with some sort of entryway in my house. I think an entryway will really help to keep my things organized when I come in the door, as least that's what I keep telling myself. I wrote a post with pictures of the type of entryway I might like. Here are a few specific things I'm looking for.
1. A few hooks to hang coats and/or bags
2. A place to drop a bag that is too heavy to hang
3. A place to put mail or keys
4. A place to keep shoes
5. It must be small. We don't have a lot of space to work with.
6. It must be affordable.
I researched benchs, tables, and hooks on Overstock, and I came up with a few ideas. Then I happened to run across this. . .
I don't even remember where I saw this. I don't think it was from the original source, A Beautiful Mess, and I know it wasn't Apartment Therapy, although they did feature it later. When I saw this, I thought, "that's it!" I'm going for a bohemian vibe in my kitchen, and this is perfect. I've already picked up the crates using my 50% off coupons at AC Moore. That brings the crates down to $5 a piece (affordable, check!). Now I just need to get the boards, hooks, and stain. I can't wait until it's finished! I can't wait until I have the whole kitchen finished, and I can share the before and after pictures with you. I still have a few more projects to complete. I'm working on a roman shade right now. I think I'm well on my way to a happy kitchen.
