our landing strip

November 4, 2009

Just inside our front door, we’ve got a little hallway nook that’s perfect for a little landing strip.  And by landing strip, I mean that one spot in the house where you drop everything the second you enter the door.  Do you have one of those?

After repainting the walls a fresh griege-based whitish color (Martha Stewart’s Mercury Glass), we hung our little “welcome” sign with hooks (purchased from Urban Outfitters last winter) and a mirror (so that I can check out my hat hair come winter).  The bench was from Lowe’s a few years ago, and has a shelf for shoes and a secret bench compartment for storing gloves, hats, and mittens in winter.  Speaking of, I woke up to 30 degree temperatures this morning… it’s only a matter of time before the snow starts flying here…  YIKES!  (Coincidentally, that’s what the orange sign hanging on the hook says.  It was in the halloween section at Michael’s, but I like it so much that it might get to stay up for a while.  YIKES!)

Here’s a view of the entire area… a metal star on the other side of the door balances out the mirror, and we’ve got a little orange bucket with umbrellas for rainy days.  Luckily, we’ve got a coat closet nearby to store extra shoes and coats, so this area can stay clutter-free and full of only the things we need easily accessible on a daily basis.

For a glimpse at some other little landing strips that I love, check out Young House Love or All Bower Power.
