Hello! I hope you all had a good weekend. We had a very productive weekend and today I'm sharing the fruits of our labour.
A little while ago, I picked up this old piece at our local thrift store ($12.99) to hang in our entry way. I thought I had taken more before, after and during photos, however this gives you an idea of the original state of the piece.
After some love, care and a little bit of hard work from hubby, this is what it looks like now. Rather than just hang it freely on the wall, we decided to build a simple bench/cubby space and add wood panels to extend into the piece to give a sense of continuity.
I love its country feel.
As much as I try to deviate from country decor, I keep coming back to it.
We had picked up these old hooks at my favourite little shop near the cottage last summer as I've been wanting to transform this little space since then...so happy it's done.
Hubby did such a great job bringing my vision to life (thanks boo).
This little space is going to be so useful to hang our coats, drop our keys etc.
And I of course can't wait to dress it up with the seasons...
The middle shelf encloses the light switch and alarm panel. The alarm panel is hidden by a simple Ikea frame and I owe it to hubby to point out it is the light switch that the builders had installed that is not straight...not his cuts.
I love this little space and it makes me so happy to know another little part of our home is complete.
Here is a quick before and after photo...
And speaking of before and after, while hubby was building our little mudroom entry way, our floors got neglected but I can't wait to show you how I gave these dirty old tiles a new life!
Make sure you come back tomorrow - I might just have an amazing little gift for you..,;)
In the mean time, have a great start to your week!
