OK, first off–it feels like forrrrrrrever since I blogged about our entryway. Seriously, I can’t even remember the last time I shared this space. Maybe Christmas? Last fall? I have no idea. I could look it up to know for sure, but I honestly don’t feel like doing that right now so we’re just going to roll with it. Either way I know it’s been a long time. And to be real, that’s mostly because this little entryway really frustrates me. It’s very narrow and there’s not room for much more than a chair or small bench. It’s just always been one of those annoying spots that nothing fits in very well, so I’ve kind of neglected this area for a while. BUT not anymore! After months and months of searching for the perfect cabinet for the entryway I FINALLY found it. It’s not too big. Not too small. And as Goldilocks would say it’s juuuuust right. I styled it up and I can’t wait to show you guys how it looks!
All right, you’re probably thinking what’s the big deal about this cabinet. I mean, it doesn’t look like much, right? But it’s honestly EXACTLY what I’ve been searching for. I wanted a simple cabinet here to style pretty things and add more interest to this small entryway. I remember last year at Christmas wishing I had a cabinet like this to decorate with tiny trees and Christmas-y things. But I couldn’t find one that fit–most were too big. But this little guy is the perfect size!
That vintage suitcase is one of my favorite things, but I never really share it here on the blog. My mom found it at a yard sale for me a few years ago and I love it. It even still has the luggage tag (which says Denver!) on it. I imagine that’s from back in the day when you didn’t bother with security and just walked straight out to the airplane sitting on the tarmac!
The Sweet Lemon candle, which is the most amazing scent for summer, is from Antique Candle Works!
I picked up this wooden tray at a local shop and I am obsessed with it. Doesn’t it make the cutest little garden caddy? I love it. And it’s the perfect size to sit on top of this cabinet.
I had so much fun styling this entryway. It definitely has a strong summer vibe going on right now and I can’t wait to mix it up as the seasons change. Although if I’m being honest, I would be 100% happy with summer decor all year round. Have I told you guys how much I love summer?! Because I do. A lot.
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking out my new purdy entryway. Here’s a few other posts you might want to hop over to:
