This morning while hunting (actually digging) for something in the front closet, I thought "this would be a good project for a cold, inside day". What a dumb idea. The longer I dug out stuff, the more frustrated I got.
So many Easter, Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July and Christmas items that hadn't been used in years. Oh, and yes, there were coats all scrunched inside also. Isn't that what an entry closet is for? ha
So, I decided to sort thru all of them and get rid of alot.
This is a photo of my entry. I have a large glass window next to my front door. My actual entry is not too large. I made very full, gathered ecru lace panels to fill the window and they are on rods at the top and bottom of the window.
I couldn't find anything I liked to go over the top, so I took tan colored scrim (a very loose woven, almost gauze-like fabric) and gathered it in a loose swag across the top. Then I tied it all in a huge knot that is at the top corner and just let it hang and puddle at the bottom.
The clock was a Christmas gift from my Mom and Dad the last Christmas they were both with us. I love the clock but don't keep it ticking because it drives me crazy. But, I still love the clock.
This darling chair I found many years ago and refinished it. I made a tan and cream check buttoned cushion to go on it. You can see the wallpaper on the bottom half of the entry on the side. I've had it for many years but haven't found anything I like any better.
So, now, my entry closet is clean and I feel so much better!
Till next time, Judy
