Let's do this in the first person, okay? My new apartment has one of those great little phone nooks right inside the front door. I love it but wasn't sure if it would be big enough for a proper landing strip. Unfortunately the entry is kind of snug and doesn't really offer any other area where I could fashion one...So I've decided to pare the landing strip down to its bare necessities. There's a place for keys, room for any stray mail, and a little picture to put a smile on my face. I'm considering painting the area, or adding something else, but another part of me really likes the simplicity. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear 'em.
