Entry Cabinets - From Horrible to Adorable :)


We don't use our front entry, so the space was neglected, and looked terrible. I needed to use the space for storage, and I desperately wanted it to look less ugly! Our new shelves make use of all of the space, and are not the eyesore they once were!

    Love this! I think people are beginning to understand that a home is to live in and make suitable for your family's needs rather than being a show place...but it can be pretty too. My only thing is I hate to see toilet paper exposed at the front door...perhaps another couple of baskets are needed! I you cannot find them to match, coordinate! HA! Or cover a couple of small boxes in wrapping paper.

    Thanks so much @At The Picket Fence and @Miriam I! @Jeanette S - lol! I see your point, but we never, ever use that door! The space where the shelves are is actually the least visible spot in the whole house! :) (I have considered baskets, but their up so high which means pulling down the basket every time. Probably should have done that for the picture though! ) I loved your comment!
