While trying to figure out what to put above my small entryway table, I remembered a pin I had seen for a wood and burlap monogram and I instantly knew how I would make it.
I had purchased a wood stepper for a few dollars a few months back at Christmas Tree Shoppe, but my original plan for it didn't work out so I've been using it for scraps.
I apologize in advance that I don't have many pictures of the process. I was working so fast and furious that I never picked up my camera until I was done. (Bad blogger, bad!)
Of course there was now some overhang, so I used my jigsaw to trim down the excess piece of wood. Then I stained the entire thing the same color as the drawer knob on my entryway table.
While the stain was drying I printed up a large monogram on a piece of burlap - you can see the full here.

Then I drilled small pilot holes in the wood and used four large upholstery nails - which I had left over from my dropcloth headboard and Ikea chair hack - and used them to secure the burlap to the wood panel.
And that's it - my "foyer" is now complete after turning a nightstand into a small entryway table and monogramming a piece of burlap and mounting it on stained wood. This project cost me nothing since I had everything on hand - isn't that the best!
And just for kicks here's a look at my entryway before and after this little makeover...
As always, thanks for stopping by 2IY. If you love my new entryway table as much as I do, I'd love for you to pin it!
