Entryways are a great place to have functional pieces and also show off your style at the same time. When I was trying to plan your our entryway area there were a few things that I knew I really wanted: a place for shoes, mail, and our keys. I didn't have an exact plan when I went to IKEA, but I knew that I would be able to find the perfect thing once I looked around.
When I found these IKEA BISSA shoe cabinets, I knew that they were exactly what I needed. This gave a spot for Jake, me, Skylar, and Noah to all keep s few pairs of shoes (even four pair of Jake's size 13 shoes will fit into a compartment). They are at a good height to have a place for all of the other things that I wanted to have in the entry. After having Jake secure the cabinets to the wall, I placed on some books, plants, a mail organizer, and our key bowl (tutorial here), and it was good to go.
I really like having this space set up. It makes it this space super functional and it also looks cute :) xo, Britt
