Tips for Finding the Perfect Entryway Furniture

I'm very excited to welcome a guest blogger today.  Angie is here with some amazing tips - and beautiful ideas - for decorating the perfect entryway.


The entryway is usually the basis of your guests’ first impression regarding the interiors of your home. It also serves as an area to stash personal items and belongings that family members have as they come and go. These are reasons in themselves that warrant attention to decor for this functional room. Below are some tips to finding the perfect furniture for your abode’s entryway.

Consider the size of the entryway 

Before you go and decide to place that well-loved antique furniture in your entryway, it’s best to know the size of the room that you’re working with. It helps to plan out placements that can either make the room feel cozier than it already is or give off an impression of being larger than its actual size. This is equally important in selecting furniture. Smaller entryways should opt for less furniture and more multipurpose pieces.

DIY July 4th Wreath with Glitter Dust Paint

I just jumped on the pool noodle wreath bandwagon and whipped myself up a new front door July 4th wreath.  This is a fun project and pretty inexpensive, too.

7 Family-Friendly Ways to Celebrate the First Day of Summer!

I have been trying to get my soon-to-be first grader to do her summer school work for weeks...but she keeps insisting "It's not summer until June 21."  That means starting tomorrow she'll be on board, right?  I think we'll push it off until Monday since this year the first day of summer is a Saturday and I want to get everyone outdoors for a fun family day!

Katie is joining us today on behalf of Hefty with a guest post and some fun outdoor ideas for spending the first day of summer somewhere other than hunched over a desk doing work.  I'll let Katie take it from here...

June 21st is the first day of summer this year.  Since it is on a Saturday this year, it is the perfect day to fit in all sorts of outdoor activities!  The first day of summer is actually the longest day of the year (from sunrise to sunset), so that means you will have plenty of time to fit everything in.
