We have a new addition to our front entry!
And I’m sort of in love with it. You know I can’t resist a good trellis pattern.
I have a plan for decorating our front entry and this console is the beginning. Phase one of the plan! I knew I wanted a table on this side of the entry and I found several mirrored consoles I liked on-line but they were all really pricey and more than I wanted to spend. So I kept looking and was thrilled when I found this three piece cabinet. It had the look I was going for and was reasonably priced. I measured our space and the size was perfect. Then I read the reviews and most people who had ordered it loved it. It was a winner! It did take a while to put together (Kenny did it in three episodes of The Good Wife) but it wasn’t too complicated. Or at least it didn’t seem to be. (I was sort of distracted by The Good Wife. — Which just hasn’t been the same since Will was killed – such a bummer.)
I loved this piece in white (it comes in a dark finish too) but I was worried about it not standing out enough with all of the white molding in our entry. I bought it thinking that if it was too much white I could have my painters paint it (my husband was thrilled about that option as you can imagine).
But I think I actually like the white. The mirrors break things up and I’m going to add colorful lamps and accessories on top. Excited for that! Plus this table will be so fun to switch up for the holidays. It will be time to decorate for Christmas before we know it! Not that I’m counting down or anything. (188 days)
Wanna see something else I love about this table?
Extra storage! I’m not sure what I’ll put in it yet, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something.
And then organize it. :)
Our entry opens up into our formal living room and the decor plan for that room is still in the works so I’m waiting to style this table. I want the colors to all be somewhat cohesive. Then at some point I’d love to find a tall bench for the other side of the front door. And maybe something fun on the sides of the table? I have a few ideas.
So far I have lots of ideas and plans and every room is getting started but nothing is getting finished. I keep moving on to the next room before I finish the last.
It’s decorating ADD at its finest.

I’ve been admiring that same cabinet for a while now. So glad to see it going to good use in someone’s house. It looks really great in your entryway!
I like it! Still in love with how you did the floor. –Hanna Lei
Hi Erin! That table is beautiful! It sounds like you have a lot of fun things planned for that space! I was laughing at your closing comments about decorating ADD – I am the SAME way! I call myself the “Queen of Unfinished Projects!!”
Have a wonderful weekend!
So pretty! Love it!
Thanks everyone! So glad you all like it! :)
Erin, I just LOVE the new cabinet in your entryway! The white finish is perfect, and the mirrors make the area look even larger. I can see a topiary and maybe a wooden lantern sitting on it! But Christmas décor will be the best! Can you just imagine how much fun it will be to style that cabinet for Christmas? This is a great purchase! Have a wonderful weekend!
What a beautiful table! You can style it any which way you please, and it’s bound to be beautiful. Such a great find.
P.S. Enough with the spoilers, though! All of us watching The Good Wife on Netflix are a season behind.
I love it!! I can’t wait to see how you decorate it. I like the lamp idea…how about a big, green, plant or two? :)
I love it. I am looking at a rug from the same catalog but concerned about the quality. How was the quality of the cabinet? Do you have any experience with their rug
OMG Will was killed???!!!! I’ve been meaning to catch up…
Love the cabinet!
Cheryl – the cabinet is great quality! Better than I thought it might be actually. I’ve never ordered anything else from them so I’m not sure about their rugs??
I love the floor. How did you grout or seal it
Can you share what flooring you have down in the entryway?
Hi Theresa! It’s wood floors with Carrara marble squares. :)
Beautiful entryway…and home for that matter! I love the way you set up the front door with the windows and the windows around it. Could you share the manufacturer of the front door and the windows around? We are building a coastal/craftsman beach house and I would love to utilize this door! ;)
Hi Jaclyn! Thank you! I designed our doors and had them custom made by my cabinet guy. Sorry that’s not much help! Good luck with your beach house! xo
What color is the walls in this entry way? Beautiful!
Thanks Megan! You can read all about my paint in this post: :)
