Living in Chicago, the apartments are typically long & slender in older buildings. There’s not a foyer area when you walk in my front door, so my landing strip is at my back door and I prefer it there so it’s not the first thing my guests would see when they walk into my home.
The landing is in my kitchen & it consists of 2 hooks, and an antique chair that reminds me of my old friend, Erin.
This chair I originally bought at an antique mall just outside of Jefferson City, MO to set towels on in my bathroom at my old apartment because it had absolutely no storage or possibility of wall shelving. No longer needing this chair for that use I challenged myself to find a use for the chair or it would have to go. It bounced around from room to room for quite sometime never feeling “right” or useful. As I was taking to my back door where it was about to go out to my landing where I could enjoy sun, sitting in my VERY fragile antique chair, enlightenment, at last came to me. The Landing Strip was it’s home! The hooks were already hung but there was no place to set down my bag or lunch pale when I walked in the door. Now the chair I loved so much, for the memory of the day I found it & it’s compact, worn look, has a purpose again!
Do you have a landing strip in your home? Is it a table, shelf, or cubbies for shoes with hooks for your jacket? Share your comments & tell me what makes walking into your home simple & organized.
Thanks again for reading along!
