ideas for a small entry...

Our entry couldn't be much smaller, I'm always on the lookout for ideas
that are functional enough to hold a few essentials,
 yet make an inviting and stylish first impression.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.
We're going to be checking something off of our
 Summer Bucket List
in the blazing 100 degree weather!

I have a small bench in our entry - it's really a box and I can toss all our shoes in it to keep them out of sight!

I love that image with the huge mirror from Design Indulgence….a mirror is so great for opening up a space!! (Or checking your teeth before you walk out the door!) Have fun working on the bucket list this weekend!! We are crossing a fun one off the list this weekend too :)

we have a small entry and i have a skinny tall mirror and a very narrow teeny table... we are making it work! maybe one day i will have a grand entry, but i am happy with it! :)

The entry is one of my favorite parts of a home. My must-haves are a bench and a mirror. Enjoy your weekend.... can't wait to hear about it!

Dana Frieling said...

So next week you'll show us yours? I'm sure it ranks right up there with the ones in your post! Enjoy your weekend. Praying for those close by you this morning in Aurora.

These are such pretty inspiration photos! I am really drooling over that old bench in the last photo...

Hi Pam! Been meaning to check out your blog for a while because I always see we comment on the same blogs. Love this post about entryways--they can be so hard to figure out. I think the floating tables and demilunes are fantastic--what a great solution for a small space!

Our entry is teensie tiny as well. Couple steps inside the front door and you'll find yourself upstairs! These are some great small space solutions. Have a fantastic weekend!

Very pretty inspiration photos. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with your entry!
The 100 degree heat blew out of here the other day. It was only 68 yesterday! Have a nice weekend!

I love your blog header! It is so pretty.

Thanks for leaving birthday wishes on my blog! :)

There are some of the neatest entryway ideas out there! We recently moved and I love many things about our house, however we really don't have an entryway at all. The front door opens right into the living room. The room is long, so I keep tossing around ideas of what I exactly want to do eventually!

Such inspirational PHOTOS!!!! Love them all! Hugs...and hugs to the furbabies! : )

We don't really have an entry at all - so that's another one for the next house wish list. I admired that last photo from Houzz as well - and I love that 2nd photo too. So pretty. What are you scheming? :)

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

So many great inspirational pics here Pam - this is exciting. I am sure you will create something gorgeous!
