Entryway Update

It’s been a while since I shared an Entryway Update. I have been working on few little things here and there, nothing major, but enough I wanted to give you a looksie on the happenings. You can take a peak at the entryway remodel to see what it looked like before these updates.

Because extra mulah isn’t always easy to come by when it comes to beautifying hallways, I decided to utilize our favorite tip for decorating when you are pretty much broke. Painting. I applied several coats of white paint our front door. What a difference that made. Buh-bye dingy, non-matching, off-white colored door, and hello clean, bright-white entrance!

For our April Home Depot Monthly Gift Challenge, I created this lovely “hello” welcome sign using a 2×4. It has found it’s home right here in our entryway. Silently greeting everyone as they come in.

When we turned our coat closet into a bench, my vision for this space was to act as a comfy nook to read in, put shoes on, or a place to cozy up with the laptop and get some work done. It really has been just that, but the throw pillows are truly essential in making these ideas a reality. I already had the perfect pillows. They just didn’t match the space very well, but thanks to these gray and white striped cases I purchased from H&M, now they do! Yay!

Entryway closet Update

Since the addition of the bench, we also added three wooden crates for shoe storage. I purchased the boxes from Walmart unstained. Then I updated them a with my favorite stain, Minwax Special Walnut.

I am totally that person that can never find their keys. I am always miss placing them. I usually find them in the door lock, but that’s not something I can always count on. So to help remedy this situation, I added a few Command Hooks behind our front door to hand hang our keys on.

One of my favorite decor items I own is displayed here in the hallway: a faux succulent terrarium I purchased from the grocery store of all places. Doesn’t it look cute on my entryway bookshelf?

    I love your little reading nook! Could you share with me the dimensions of the space?
    We unwillingly, how to make over our entire house, when hurricane Harvey left 3′ of water in it last August.
    I used to have builtin cupboards, in our bedroom, but the lowers all got ruined from the water and now I have a space similar to yours that I was thinking about doing the same thing to.
    If you could share your dimensions please and perhaps where you found the foam like mattress on your bench??
