Entry Solutions

Last week I refinished this fab table to help contain the insanity that is my entryway, but there was still the issue of all that mish mash mess under the table.

I found this at the thrift store

and turned it into this!

She is a bit beat up, but she is big and I really like her better gray with my little stencil on the front.

I spray painted the entire thing gray and then lightly taped the stencil on and spray painted that with an off white.

I moved the small baskets under the bench in the adjoining living room, so we can still use those for storage too!

Loving that I no longer have to see that mess every time I walk through!

  1. I have thought about painting baskets, but never tried it. Seems like it would be a pain to get in all the little nooks & crannies. How was the painting process – fairly easy? I love the stenciling that you added also – very nice touch!

    • Ha Ha-I thought I would be SOOO slick and paint with a dry brush technique, but it looked ridiculous. So I went for the spray paint and that actually was easy. I did one coat right side up and the second right side down and I seem to have gotten it all:)

  2. I love this! Yeah, gotta find ways to make everyday living out of sight, but easy to get to as well. The aged look makes it even better.

  3. I really looks great. Thanks for the post.

  4. Do you think you wil have a problem with setting the basket in front of the register? I love how it looks, and thanks for the post.

  5. Love your big basket trunk solution…the entry way is very inviting.

  6. Umm… that looks amazing. I’m not sure what you would say about my entry/ mudroom right now, but your insanity shot is mine on a very, very good day. Where did you find that basket….?

    Have a great week. Thanks for hosting yesterday, too. I was away and didn’t link up until tonight.

  7. Turned out great!

  8. Ah! I can’t believe this Kim because I have had my eye out for something similar that I could paint for my entry and I’m wanting to do the exact same color. LOL! You beat me to it and it looks totally fantastic my friend! :-)

  9. I love the idea of a big basket like that in your entry way. The lid to cover up any messes is perfect.:) Your grey fits really well, also.

  10. I just found you over at Gina’s Transformation Thursday and thought I’d come take a peek. I’ve enjoyed your blog so that I’ve just become your newest follower. Please come visit and hopefully follow back at PICKINandPAINTIN.blogspot.com. THANKS. 8-)

  11. oooohhhh…I really, really love this! The touch of stenciling at the bottom corner gives it character. And I love the gray color you chose!

  12. It turned out great! What a good find.
