I’m so excited to show you the progress we made on the entryway this weekend. For starters, let’s look back at the entryway when we moved in and a few changes I made before we really hit it out of the park this weekend!
And here is my hubby hard at work making my pinterest a reality.
I love that I can change out the pictures, maybe add something else besides pictures and just have fun playing with this space.
I started painting the trim for the cloffice white which then led to painting the trim in the entryway white which then lead to the stair banister and a gallery wall for the staircase. The hubby couldn’t stop staring at the white trim in the cloffice area the first day. Even he was loving it!
This is the part where you pretend you don’t see the unpainted oak by the step. K? Great, moving on.
I also found this rug at Kohls this weekend. It is not white, will hopefully hide some dirt and the dogs like it. Although maybe the dogs liking it isn’t a good thing. Hmmmm….they look innocent enough.
And we’re also looking at the rug, not the green frog tape and unpainted oak. That darn oak just won’t leave!!!! Oh look, some cute dogs to distract you!!!!
The last piece I needed was a table for underneath the mirror. I stalked Craigslist for a month and came up empty handed. I ended up finding something that would work right in my own house! I love when that happens. This little cream colored shabby chic bookcase which was a Target clearance find a year or two ago, received a little makeover with the help of Krylon gloss paint. The eldest daughter is mad that I
stole took this out of her bedroom. I told her I’d find her a new cooler one.
The lamp was another Target clearance find a few years ago and has been residing on my bedside table but I like it in the entryway instead. The owl was a garage sale find the other week and my mother-in-law gave me the horse picture. I found the baskets at Hobby Lobby and can’t wait to fill them with some hats, mittens, umbrellas and shoes. Did you hear the sarcasm in the last sentence? You didn’t, ok good.
So here are a few before and afters to finish this up.
I’m giving you a sneak peek at the cloffice area but this is just the beginning. You’ll want to check back on Oct. 3rd when I’m hosting the closets and nooks section of Roomspiration!
So there you have it, then entryway. I hope you enjoyed the tour! Please check back for more progress on our house as we make it a home. The journey on this one is just beginning!
