DIY Entry Table

The Entryway.

entrypostWhether you have a huge house or a small apartment, the entryway is what first makes it feel like home. So shortly after moving up North, it was our entryway that I got started working on ASAP.

At the time we didn’t have a single piece of furniture in the apartment and it was going to be over two weeks until we were, so you can say that it was this project that kept me sane! Being quick, easy and beyond budget friendly, this entry table still makes me smile when I stop and look at it. It is the perfect lil’ something that finishes the entry!

For this DIY, you’ll need:

  • 2 brakets – The ones I bought were $5 each and came with two wall screws and two top securing screws.
  • Piece of wood – I bought mine at Home Depot for only $4.01 from their “Cull Lumber” selection. Great buy and they will cut it for free!
  • Electric screwdriver – When I did this, we didn’t have ours up here so I used a good ole old-fashioned one. It worked perfectly, just took a little longer.
  • Measuring tape and pencil
15dollars

1. Screw the brakets into the wall – I measured 30 inches from the floor to the ceiling and marked the section lightly with a pencil. *Spacing between the brackets depends on how large of an entry table you are making. 
2. Center the precut piece of wood on top of the brakets.
3. Screw the tops of the brakets into the piece of wood to secure it.
4. Decorate! Make sure you have contrasting heights, knick knacks and a photo. This makes it even more personable and feeling like home.

Using our military discount at Home Depot (it’s 10% off), I was able to make this for less than $15. Not only was it budget friendly, but it also adds a unique touch to our entryway!

And, yes, we do keep a baseball bat by the front door… We’re old souls like that. 🙂
