Perhaps her entryway makeover can answer our burning questions. Before, it was a cramped and bleak space whose most notable feature was that big utility box right smack-a-doodle in the middle of the wall.

And now, it’s a bright and happy welcome home! She disguised the utility box and once she explained to her husband what her vision for the free table was, he chopped it up and reassembled it into a handy shoe storage station, at exactly the right height.  Oh, to have a handy husband.  If I said “Hey Matt, we need a comfier place to stash our shoes,” he would probably just list our house and try to move us again.

    That looks great. I love the idea of cutting up a table to make something else. I have a table that I like the top, but hate the legs. What house builder puts a utility box right in the entry? Duh.
    However, since I’m kinda clumsy, I think that I would trip over the extended leg of that table all the time. It looks like it partly blocks where you go up the stairs. Maybe it’s a camera angle distortion, but if that were in my house, I’d wind up in the hospital regularly.

    That works very well, but I am glad we don’t live in areas that require heavy boots. 🙂
