Getting tired of gray days? Look at Julie's solution...she sent us this photo of her newly organized entryway. The email was titled "Wintertime blues turned tangerine dreams" and had this to say about her recent project:
"I got tired of the squishy messy snowy pile of shoes, boots, snowpants, dog leashes, jackets and hats that was constantly underfoot at the entryway to my 1,000 square foot Chicago-suburbs condo."
"As the first space you see when you enter my place, it was downright depressing. So, this weeeknd's project: I brightened the space up with Behr "Arizona", confined the shoes-not-in-current-use to clear boxes from The Container Store and installed colorful jacket etc. hanging hooks at kid-level. Now that we've conquered winter maybe spring will be here soon!"
Nice job, Julie! Tackling a weekend project like this is a great way to give your place a mid-winter boost, especially when it involves such a busy part of the home like the entryway. It must be such a treat to come in from the cold to a bright sunny spot and have a place to put everything. It's got us looking at the overflowing basket filled with bike helmets, mittens, hats and umbrellas by our door right now...
