I have always loved a beautiful entry table. In our first apartment our entryway was a narrow hallway, but I still put an entry table there. It was a great place to throw keys or leave things that we didn’t want to forget to take with us as we left for work. Our first house had a great entryway- perfect for a table with a little storage. I love adding a lamp on a timer for extra light at night (as well as a little extra security when we’re away). It’s also a fun place to decorate for the seasons. This is our entry a few Christmases ago:
I love perusing Pinterest to find fun ideas for our house, and I’ve fallen in love with several entryways:
The last picture reminds me of our entryway in our new house, with stairs on the left and a doorway on the right.
Those two photos were taken before we moved into the house. I wasn’t sure if we’d even have room for a table at first. However, once we moved in I knew I couldn’t live without one! I searched the internet for something with a little storage, but most of them were too big. At one point I thought about building something that would fit. After one more search I found a great little bookshelf on Amazon that was perfect!
I also found a mirror to put above it but I don’t love the size (but I do love having it by the door! I always check to make sure I don’t have anything crazy on my face before answering it- ha!). The bookshelf is unfinished, so I am hoping to figure out what to do with it and get that done soon. Someday it would be nice to put a dresser there that can store hats, gloves, and scarves, but I really love having so many shelves to decorate! For now I am happy that I was able to fit a table into our entryway. There’s no space too small for a cute entryway table!
