the front entry

The front entry of the house has been a flexible space for us because I don't have a specific piece of furniture for that spot.  It is next to the dining room/kitchen, and between the front and back doors.  When we first moved in it was an art station for the kids...
what a mess
Then, as more boxes got unpacked, a new spot was created for the art station, and the entry sat empty for a while.. then I realized how CRAZY that was, when space is so tight.  I decided to put it to good use as a sewing centre for me, while I get some projects done.

a little better
What I would like to do, long term, is to put a nice long teak server here, a rug on the floor with some floor pillows for little readers.  Add a funky coat rack for guests, paint the door a fun colour (green?yellow?) and some whimsical accessories and plants.

front entry
something like this


But in the meantime, sewing awaits.. what do you think.. do you like it?  A girl can always dream, right?

LOVE love love LOVE, our bamboo sheets! Did I say LOVE?? By far the BEST sheets we have EVER owned. I have had them for at least 3 years and machine dry them though I am not supposed to... They are so soft and we have not experienced Any of the problems you have? Do they make bamboo underwear, I think I would like those too ;0)
