Entryway tour

I received a lot of requests after I posted a peek at my apartment to do more posts, so I thought it'd be fun to do a post on each area of the apartment. Honestly, we can't do much here. We're really limited on what we can decorate and put on the walls. I'll never truly feel like we can make it our own, but we definitely tried with each room. I'm excited to buy a house in the near future and just pour our hearts into it, but until then... we're happy here! It's a way old historic house, so everything is dusty all the time but I really love it's charm.

One of the first rooms we "fixed up" was our entryway. I knew I wanted a place to hang coats, and sit down to put on shoes... so a coat rack and a bench were my main priorities. We had this old piece of wood sitting outside for forever that we tried to turn into a bench... it was horrible! I'm the worst at anything DIY. But I saw some cute knobs at Anthropologie, so I thought hm... that'd be easy. So Eric drilled holes into it, and screwed the knobs in. Really easy coat-hanger! We just screwed it into the wall. The bench was an easy buy from IKEA.

We also have a mail slot, and mail was always falling on the floor so we attached a basket to catch that. Thanks "Take this Waltz" for the inspiration. I love it. I also put up a little chalkboard piece to write little notes! We also don't have much outdoor storage in our place, so I'm storing my scooter in here for winter. I can't wait until I can get that out again and ride! The entryway is more of a practical space, but I'm glad we were able to make it look a little bit more fun and us! I'll be posting on our other rooms in the coming months. Have a good rest of your weekend. xo
