Store shoes in a vintage mail organizer - Disclaimer: Finding a gorgeous and intact antique mail organizer isn’t exactly easy. But we can still draw inspiration from the idea. If you can’t score your very own vintage mail sorter like Sincerely, Sara D, build one by following these instructions from Remodelaholic. Another option is to find another equally functional cubby shelf system (or wall hutch like the one that Abbi from Broad City uses in her bedroom) to store shoes and baskets of accessories.
Imagine walking into your home as a visitor. What would greet you as you enter? Maybe a mess of shoes by the door or a less than desirable paint color. If this sounds like your entryway, it’s time to upgrade your space. Your entryway is the first impression people have of your home. So, it’s important to spend the time to make the room look its best. Here are a few tips on how you can improve your entryway.
Store shoes, bags, and accessories in baskets on a console. - For style and function, store everything from purses and gloves to stacks of mail and shoes in matching baskets. Easy, obvious, and yet totally impactful. Build a DIY wooden boot rack - If you want to keep your winter boots (or summer sneakers, for that matter) organized and easy to grab when you’re rushing out the door for an impromptu snowball fight, this DIY wooden boot rack is exactly what you need. Stephanie Lynn features her boot rack outside, but you can easily display it below your coat rack or next to a storage bench. If you decide to keep the boot rack inside, remember to place a tray beneath the rack to collect melted snow, dirt, and dust so your entryway floor stays clean.
Start with your front door décor. A floral wreath can really help to brighten up your entryway. Now is also a great time to get your front porch flowers planted so they are ready to bloom as the weather changes. A front door welcome mat is a great addition to your spring entryway décor. Choose one in a pastel like lavender or blush pink to get the look.
