Well sometimes I make a few small updates around the house that don’t really require a full post. Well, at least in my eyes. First up? My updated kitchen landing table.
I didn’t really change the table, but I took a suggestion from a reader and added a little basket underneath for my kiddo’s backpack. This way she knows exactly where to find her bookbag, a designated space so we’re not searching every morning.
I also had some artwork hung above the old landing table, but it was white and kind of got lost on the wall. So I took a little Paris Gray Annie Sloan chalk paint and quickly covered the artwork. Nothing neat or perfect, just a quick and messy coat. Then I distressed and finished it off with some dark wax.
I’ve also been reconfiguring our entry foyer. Since I moved our old console table to the family room I’ve been looking for something new to fit this space. For now I found an old bench that needs some love.
I hung my Goodwill leaf art across the hall in the foyer now that I have new kitchen metal shelving that’s in its old home. Yeah, still have a lot of work to do in the entryway but at least I’m making some progress.
I’m thinking new area rug, picture frame moldings and chair rail, a shelf/hook system above the bench if I keep it here… Not 100% sold on the bench staying here but maybe once I get started on the space it will feel more welcoming. Otherwise this puppy is moving upstairs to the loft. And getting a coat of paint?
What’s your input on the foyer?
Practical boot bench, or a wow statement piece instead?
And paint the bench or not?
