My entryway is super skinny. There isn't a lot of room for any kind of console table with a cute chair. Bummer. The next best thing is a really cute shelf, right? My mom is the queen of using painters' tape to plan furniture placement. The blue tape is my future shelf. I get what you're thinking: "Uh, it's off center from your adorable chalkboard."
Here it is! All finished and decked out at Christmas.
