Entryway Table Ideas

Choose a table that fits the room

Pick a table that isn’t going to dominate the entryway. Err on the smaller size if in doubt – don’t let the table cause an obstruction.

Consider a console table

Use a console table if space is at a premium. Their narrow size makes the entryway easy to navigate while still providing a useful surface.

Let a little light in

If natural light is in short supply, find space for a lamp on the table. When you’re expecting guests, this can create a welcoming vibe.

Add drawers to your table

Small drawers under the table can provide limited but valuable storage. In particular, these can be the ideal place to store house or car keys.

Use surface space creatively

Find room on your entryway table for a plant, a photo frame, or a mail organizer. Adding a personal touch makes coming home even more pleasant.

Making a Belt for a Treadle Sewing Machine

I found a pretty blue vintage sewing machine at a thrift store, and I went home without it. Then I decided that I loved it and went back to pick it up. And then sparks came shooting out of the motor, which caused me to quickly unplug it and hope it hadn’t caught on fire. Clearly the sewing machine didn’t love me back. In fact, I think it may have been trying to kill me. Okay, so maybe I had a $10 paper weight. No big deal. But wait! There was an antique treadle table in a local auction. Maybe, just maybe…
