We've had a few really lovely sunny days which gave me the opportunity to take some photos of our entry this week. I know that I don't always keep you all up to date on the small changes in our home, but I thought this year I would try and show some more of them here on the blog. I've made a couple small updates to our entry which have helped it function a little better this winter.
The first is the addition of a third shoe cubby (before we only had two). We use the cubbies mostly for hats, mitts, etc. and once winter hit I noticed that the boys were having to climb up on a chair to get to their hats and mitts. I decided to add the third one at the bottom and now they can easily get their things. Thankfully, it fit just fine and we already had the third cubby since they are sold in packs of three.
The other update is adding this little hanging mirror. This picture is from the perspective as you enter our house. To the left of the mirror is a coat closet and through the opening on the right is the kitchen. I didn't really have any other place for a mirror in the immediate entry so I think this spot works well for checking yourself before you go since the hubby and I would be getting our coats from here anyway.
I took this picture to let you see where the den (aka my new workspace) is in relation to the entry. It's pretty much right there when you enter the house. I'm going to have to keep that desk really tidy or close the doors when guests come over. The space is still a work in progress and you can probably see the mess peeking out from around the corner. Lots to do in there, but really exciting!
