I bought this little table right after Brandon and I moved into our house…
At that time, if something was pretty and reasonably priced…it came home with me right away! Although I love the Coastal-ish accessories, the table is certainly not functional for an entryway. I added the small Ikea shelf for a place to drop keys and sunglasses and bought a small hook for my purse (which currently has not been hung). Although the shelf helps, this area is still not as useful as it could be.
So, I have been eying this shoe cabinet for quite sometime…
I love pretty much everything about this cabinet. There is a nice shallow drawer at the top for mail sorting. The back legs are missing for easy mounting above baseboards. There are plenty of shoe compartments for the shoes Brandon and I wear the most.
Here are some inspiration photos that completely sold me on the idea…
I am all about functionality now that I realize you actually “live” in a house…you don’t just look at it!
So, do you remember that beautiful Mood Board from The Yellow Cape Cod….?
Since the entry way flows right into the living room, I want everything to be visually tied together. My plan is to purchase the print from Cherish Me Designs and hang it in a silver frame (that I found on clearance at Target yesterday) directly above the cabinet.
Hopefully we will have a chance to stop by Ikea this weekend and get moving with the transformation.
Don’t you just love Labor Day? I hope you all have a safe and restful holiday.
