  1. Bonjour Isabelle,
    Congrats on even thinking you could do something in that tiny entryway. Your tip on how to hang a mirror (or anything else) will help me big time.
    Aurevoir :o)

    • Merci Chantal! That trick has saved me a lot of headaches when hanging things so I’m happy to share it 🙂

  2. What a clever use of space. Not only did it brighten up the area but it is very practical too. Coats by the door and you can check yourself in the mirror before you head out!

    • Thank you! Exactly, the mirror serves many purposes and having the coat rack there has made a huge difference and actually made that tiny space useful!

  3. Great entryway make over Isabelle. I’m trying to figure out what to do with my entry way. You’ve given me an idea. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Thank you! And I’m so glad to hear that I’ve helped you with an idea that will work in your home!

  4. The difference is amazing! I like that it looks great AND is functional. Your ideas are doable for we apartment dwellers. Thanks.

  5. Great idea! I also have a small entry so i made something similar out of an old wardrobe door,a mirror and over-the-door hooks. Great work, Isabelle, greetings from Serbia!

    • It’s so great to hear from you, all the way from Serbia! Thanks so much and it sounds like you made the most out of your entryway too. Thanks for watching! Isabelle

  6. OMG … you rock! I just discovered your channel tonight; I turned off the television and watched at least 5 of them. I LOVE your ideas. I’ve used some of them in the past (like using an armoire as a room divider) and look forward to using some of the others. I’m thinking of how I could build a shallow “frame” on my wall to hide all my kitchen spices. Please keep coming up with great videos!

    • Thank you so much Tee for your kind words, it really helps keep me going!
