We've been in the new house for about two months and we are loving it! We've been doing a lot of projects and I'll be posting more as we get different ones finished up. 

I've been looking at Pinterest a lot and getting ideas for different parts of the house since we moved here. Our entry has a small area for a table/something and we were trying to figure out how to make it fun but not too bulky looking. I found the picture below and absolutely loved the feel of the entry.

I found a mirror on sale at Kirkland's for $150 and started hunting for a good entry table. I liked the thin profile of the table above and how it didn't obstruct the mirror. I loved the Pottery Barn table below but didn't love the $399 price tag. 

Luckily we found a knock off on for about $110 and it was the exact dimensions of the PB version.

I added our old wicker trunk (used as a coffee table in our last AL house) to add a little interest under the table. I got the wall hooks for $10 at Hobby Lobby and the chair was an old one I had picked up at a Re-Store and refinished.

I put a few pumpkins in the bird cage for Fall and the wreath was a house warming gift from our real estate agent.

I'm really pleased with how everything came together and what good deals we found!
