We spent Labour Day Monday doing, well, a bit of labour 😉 As you know from previous posts, adding more functionality to our home is a big focus this year – our front entryway a priority – and we’re so pleased with how it all came together!
I was the site super, and Andrew got to work with his little helpers putting together the items we selected from Wayfair Canada from the shoppable list provided by our fabulous, time-saving design friends at White Dahlia Design! Check out THIS POST for the before shots! We picked a storage bench (to hold all the shoes that pile up in our hallway), a storage shelf, area rug, chevron + blue velvet accent pillows and trendy seagrass baskets (got two because…obsessed!). The design included a beautiful white, ceramic plant holder, but due to a very curious toddler, we swapped that out for now and used a smaller (safer!) basket instead.
This was one of the simplest home improvement projects we’ve done to date. From the design to ordering our selections on Wayfair Canada’s online store (which arrived within a week!), to the build of the product, we know we saved hours of time (and money) with the entire process. Andrew was pretty stoked about how simple the items were to put together, especially the switch & lock hardware on the bench.
I love to touch of blue hues in the space. We have LOTS of grey all over the house so introducing more colour is definitely in the plan for future projects.
We are loving all the added storage for all the “stuff” that comes through the front door, especially with the start of the school year and hockey season. Now to get everyone on-board with putting their shoes & items away 😉
