Nothing is more welcoming than a decorated entryway. We’ve got an arrangement of foliage to invite guests inside and remind you fall is all around us! Tag us in your entryway photos! We’d love to share your creativity!
Our Grail planter casts ambient light and is perfect for the entryway or by a living room window. Folded like origami from steel sheets with a copper/rose gold look. Was $890, now $667.50. More markdowns in store!
I never thought I’d get tired of rain but I think I’m pretty much there. I’ll keep the cooler temps but would love a pause on the rain. Five of our 20+ privacy shrubs we planted just a few months ago have drowned and I’m afraid a few more are about to follow suit. 😩 On a much brighter note, painting my kitchen backsplash is creating an awesome transformation. I had some doubts as to how it would turn out but the closer I am to wrapping up this project, the happier I am with it! I’m almost done! 🧡🍁.
I revamped my entryway storage, and thought I would share! A hook and two bins for each child, and a hanging rack to the right for guests. We have a small coat closet, and that’s where I hang jackets/coats, and also where my husband and I keep our shoes, but there wasn’t enough space for all 5 of us to keep everything in there.
I have wanted to do something like this for a long time, but couldn’t quite figure out how to do it. It’s still not perfect, but I do at least have a clearly defined storage space for each child’s belongings, which was my main goal.
The top bins have a few smaller baskets inside. One holds socks, the other will hold hat/gloves once the weather cools down. There’s also enough space in those bins for extra gear for activities — ballet and tap for one girl, Girl Scout bag for the other.
The bottom bins are all just shoes. Each child has a basket in their closet as well, that holds off season or shoes that are just a little too big for them. That way, it’s relatively easy to find the ones they are looking for — all shoes downstairs fit and are seasonally appropriate!
I’m working on getting a basket or a tray to hold guests’ shoes — I’m a big fan of leaving shoes at the door! But I thought I’d show you my progress in case any of it was helpful. I like this setup because it makes it easy to find things, but also because it makes it easier to involve my kids in taking responsibility for their things. They know where to look (mostly), and I’m not hunting for their stuff as we are running out the door in the morning (mostly). This post feels a little back-to-school-y, which is the wrong timing for most of you, but just right for us — my kids are finally scheduled to go back to school a week from tomorrow, after 6.5 long weeks out due to the hurricane! Fingers crossed that all goes according to plan (it certainly hasn’t so far)! #entryway#storage#organization#lifewithkids#simpleliving#mudroom
