The other word to describe the weekend would be “backtrack.” In the midst of lots of snuggling and humidifying and baby Vicks, we managed to gather a few things to spruce up our entryway. I had envisioned a beautiful wood shelf on brackets underneath our new, large mirror like this inspiration photo:
Our entryway would have a shoe rack underneath, since we absolutely need a place to stash our shoes when we walk in the door. We live in reality around here, even if I wish I could have that vase of flowers and the floor free of shoe clutter–it just wouldn’t work for us. The shoes would still pile up underneath and the vase would last 30 seconds with Greta’s little hands. Eh well. I picked up a sturdy piece of wood at Home Depot and some stain and three brackets ready to make our shelf. I also found a beautiful bamboo and oil-rubbed bronze shoe rack in the online classifieds that I claimed within minutes. Once I got it home, and before I started on my shelf, I put my shoe rack in place and this in when the *Sccrreeeeeechhhh* comes in.
