Our Front Entry

My goal was to create this post right after I showed you the new shelves we built for the our front entryway.  Then...life happened.  My handy hubby created a shelving system for the front entry of our house.  You can find that post here.

I thought I would show you our front entry and how we organize all the stuff that gets dropped when you walk in the door.


To the right of the front door is the shelves that my husband built for me.  Each member of our family has a basket.  Hubby keeps his wallet and other items he grabs when he comes in and out during the day.  My daughter's basket is where she can throw her hat and gloves that otherwise end up on the floor.  I keep my purse on top since I grab it on the way out the door.


To the left of the front door is the bench and coat hooks.  My hubby found the bench on the curb.  He brought it home, repainted it and I have loved having it next to our front door.  In addition, he built our coat hooks with a painted piece of wood (he added trim to the edges so it looks pretty) and hooks from the home improvement store.  We hang coats and school bags here.  My daughter sometimes also lays her bookbag on the bench so she can reach it, but its not on the floor!

The door you see is our hall closet.  It was one of my very first organizing projects on the blog.  I have reorganized this since my first post over a year and a half ago so I will soon show you how it looks now. 


Here is a view of the entry from the living room.  Our entry way opens directly into the living room so I like to keep it clutter free. You can also view the entry from the kitchen table...(you get the point).  We recently repainted our first floor with the wonderful yellow color it is now.  I've been working on green and red accents as I create or buy things for the kitchen, eating area, and living room.  I'd like to repaint the front door at some point to match our new colors.  Hope you have enjoyed our little entryway tour!

Enjoy!
