After living with blank walls for months, and then finally getting some oversized art on one wall, I finally finished up our other blank wall in the entry. Hello simple console table, sexy mirror, and a splash of gold, how glad I am you are in my life.
I had been wanting a discreet table on that wall to provide some sort of anchor for a mirror or art above it. Actually, the mirror purchase came first. I bought it a while ago (from Home Goods) and have been trying it out in a few different spots around the house. I couldn’t resist its curved lines so it is one of the rare times I bought first and figured out a spot for it second. Ultimately, I decided to give it a go in the entry.
Under the mirror I needed a table narrow enough to allow room to walk by the round table in the middle of the room. I flirted with ideas like an acrylic console table or a little cabinet or just a ledge, but ultimately settled on the clean-lines of a parsons table that would semi blend into the wall.
The petite console table is just the right size for the space and its textured finish keeps it simple but not boring. (The table is a DIY, so I’ll post a tutorial soon).
Now that the wall is no longer blank, it has become the perfect spot to drop keys and to check yourself out (not to be confused with exchanging keys whilst checking others out – it is not the 70s people).
The table and mirror fit perfectly under our ceiling spotlight. And I even worked in a tall white vase after all my searching a while back (a $5 clearance score from Home Goods, spray painted glossy white).
And the other side of the room got a tiny update too. When I was looking for a little picture to set on the console table I ran across this print which I couldn’t resist adding to the entry.
So there you have it. No more blank walls in the entry.
That’s not to say my work here is done, but the decorating is (for now). Next up for this space will be removing old doors and adding a new one – get out the sledgehammer!
Anyone else buy something you love with no idea where to put it? Or have too big of a stack of frames that you can’t even remember what’s in it? Oh, maybe that’s just me…
