DIY Small Entryway

Our entryway has literally been empty for the longest time. O, and by entryway I mean a tiny 45 inch wall between the front door and and the living room front window. We do have the card catalog “entry table” also in the living room entryway area that you can see {here}, but I also wanted to create a DIY small entryway right by the door as well for hanging keys & jackets. It all started when I stumbled upon a lovely piece of art at Home Goodsย this weekend.

My little obsession with rabbits continues. Actually, Mr. LMB spotted this guy hiding on a shelf & picked it up & told me I needed him. For $20 I couldn’t pass it up! I had no idea where we were going to hang it until I got home & was greeted once again by the empty wall by the front door…

I didn’t intentionally take this photo for a before photo for this DIY, but I happen to take it of this window I picked up the other day at an antique store that was just sitting by the front door. You see how boring this spot was? Super lame.

Before we hung up the art I knew that I wanted to make some kind of coat rack for below the piece. I actually had a board in my garage that happened to be the same length as the art already.. score! I stained it with Minwax special walnut & mounted 4 coat hooks that I picked up at Lowes. Super simple!

I am thinking of adding some kind of table or something below setting on the floor, but we will save that for another day. For now I’m super content with this lovely little wall in our house now that is no longer lifeless & dull. Do you have a small entry space like this somewhere in your home? What did you do with the space? Leave me a comment below, I would love to hear from you! Be sure to also find me on Facebook & Instagram to chat.ย
