This weekend I also put my crafting muscles to work with a little project to spruce up our entryway. I’ve been spending so much time in Home Depot that I started looking at the materials in a different way and thought of this simple way to bring the aesthetic of a macramé or woven wall hanging (with a little metallic flair) into our space.
All of our money is going into the renovation right now so we don’t have a lot to play with to decorate and I am SO over having blank walls. So, while I still plan on getting a real deal macramé piece made by fellow Michigander Sally England once our bank accounts have recovered, I made this to tide me over.
Paired with some art, some of my favorite objects and this storage piece, I think it made a big step forward in shaping up our entryway. We bought that credenza, which is really a mini bar, from CB2 when we first moved into our old house (6 years ago) and have never actually used it as a bar. In our last home it was in the bedroom and here it works out perfectly as an entryway piece. I love that it has drawers for small things like keys and sunglasses and bigger doors for hats or bags (hiding all the clutter that usually lands on the kitchen counter).
Get the full DIY instructions and list of materials needed in the post I shared over on A Beautiful Mess!
