The first step was to clear off the shelves of all the random and haphazardly piled books. But we still had to deal with the problem of mail, receipts and keys. We spent some time looking around on Etsy and Pinterest to get some ideas (domesticity at it's finest here people) figured out a rough idea of what we wanted.
Then, during my festive evening out with Andy, I found this little guy in the dollar spot.
The N-boy loved it. So from there we headed out to Meijer, Target and finally Michael's to see if we could put something together. We ended with up a picture frame, chalkboard paint, three drawer pulls and this cute little wooden conversation bubble.
A little spray paint and glue and we got here.
Here's the final product! We're super happy with how it turned out and so far it seems to be working great. Each day when I come home and hang up my keys there's a new message waiting for me from the N-boy, and sometimes the owl's eyes move to look somewhere else!
Do you have any creative ideas to organize your entry way?
