Entryway Update

Entryway Vignette

I’ve been playing around with different arrangements in our entry hall and I thought I’d go ahead and share a little “entryway update” with you.

If you’ll recall, we moved in a few months ago and we were working with a blank slate:

Empty Entryway

Here’s where we are currently after collecting items from around the house in an attempt to use what we already have.

Enryway Update

This may change again soon since I’m just playing around with different arrangements, but as of now this is what it looks like. Eventually I plan on painting the walls and eradicating all of the yellowy builder beige in sight, but for now it stays. The console table was a thrifty find at a local antique market. Just to refresh your memory this is what it looked like before:

Ugly Console

The console used to serve as a mini buffet table in our dining room at our old house, but it fits perfectly in our entryway now.

Funny story about the mirror in the entryway hall. It’s a cheap Wal-Mart mirror and it used to be in our old family room. I didn’t really have a place for it anymore so I posted it on Craigslist, and when it didn’t sell I decided to pile it in the basement for a future garage sale. As my husband was getting ready to carry it down to the basement, I said, “Wait a minute, let’s just see what it looks like here,” and at the last minute it was saved. Who knows how long it will stay in this spot, but for now it works.

Entryway Vignette

The roses came from our yard and I love the vibrant color. When we first moved in I thought the previous owners went a little crazy with the rose bushes (there are several lining the front of our house and then there is an entire rose garden in the back yard), but as soon as they started blooming I was so happy they planted so many! Right now most of them have died, but I’m desperately trying to get them to bloom again.

I’ll keep you updated on progress as things evolve in the entryway, but I have lots of other rooms to focus on and I’m trying my best to cram some projects in before the baby is born. Stay tuned!

How to Roast your own Coffee Beans {on a Budget}

I know I usually post crafts or DIY projects related to the home, but if you consider the fact that many households can’t be a happy home without coffee, then I guess this post fits the bill. Personally, I’ve never been a coffee drinker. (Gasp! I know!) My husband, Chris, on the other hand, drinks […]

How to Choose the Perfect Paint Color

How to Choose the Perfect Paint Color

I always find it so fascinating when people can just walk into a paint store, point to a paint chip and say “I’ll take that one.” My sister can choose paint that quickly. I, on the other hand, have an entire process for choosing paint, and I thought it would be fun to share that […]
