Improving our entry way

You may remember this post from earlier this year. We are still working to create our new and improved entry way. 

We are, however, a little closer to having our entry way completed. 

My dad helped us build this awesome built in coat tree. It started like this:

Here my dad and husband are measuring out the wall and hammering the first boards.

Next, I puttied the holes and sanded them. Then, I painted the coat tree.

I then installed these chrome hooks.

We are already getting lots of use out of our new entry way, even though we are not finished.

Next, we will install a new light fixture, paint the back of the door black, and get a new rug. I can’t wait to show you the finished product!
