A white console table in an entryway is a must. Not only is it an essential dropzone for keys, mail, and more, an entryway console can ground a mirror (another entryway essential) and add beauty to your home’s first interior impression.
Our entryway in our new house had a big problem though –
We needed to hide these radiant heat floor pipes too.
So I came up with this design for an entryway console –
It’s based off a console table plan I did a few years back –
I just double the width to fit my space. I hid the pipes behind the doors, but kept the basket storage to full depth. There’s still a good amount of storage behind the doors too, despite the pipes.
We love our new white console table!
This piece is so perfect for our space. The baskets (from Joanns) are perfect for mail, and the look is very adaptable for every type of decor or season.
The hardware was a big deal. I dry fit several different options and was very suprised when the Lombard Pulls by Liberty Hardware/Franklin Brass were the clear winner.
They seemed almost too simple in the package, but on the cabinet – understated perfection.
This was such a good project, one that will stay with our house for many many years. I love that it could be used throughout the house too – entertainment center, baby changing table, hybrid dresser, dining room buffet, coffee bar just to name a few.
We featured this dropzone entryway console in a video a few weeks back – lots of build details, especially on the doors – do watch if you can.
