The Entryway Reveal

Happy Weekend Everyone!
It’s time to start doing some room reveals around here!
You may remember when I posted my Entryway at Christmas post. Well I shared my
 my everyday Entryway the other day over at Bella Nest, so it’s high time I share it here!
This is actually not one of my favorite spaces (great way to start this huh?) I actually finished decorating this space a couple years ago, and I think I’m a little board with it. If I didn’t have LOTS of other rooms I needed to be finishing, I’d probably be stenciling the wall in here or something!
Anyways, I finished the all the trim and painting touch-ups in this room in late November, but by then, we were into Christmas projects, and then I had my Sister’s Room Makeover, and then I had to finish my Master Bedroom Reveal, so I could enter it in all the “first of the year” type link-ups. All this to say, the Entryway has been COMPLETELY finished for about 3 months now!
So, here’s the tour that I shared a couple weeks ago on Bella Nest.
I’m going to take you on a little tour of my entryway that I have adorned with thrifting finds and dollar store items.
Below are a couple pictures I found from before we moved in.
This one is mainly the dinning room, but you can see the yellow entryway door, to the right.
Here’s a pic mid-way through the painting process, and pre-tile. I have no idea why my laundry is there?
Here is the after. I will note after the pictures where I acquired everything.
Jars and some of the candles: Goodwill
Welcome sign: Ross on clearance due to a scuff.
Uptown sign (name of a older shopping area up the road): Yardsale $7. Didn’t have to do thing to it!
Curtians: originals from the 1940’s. I added the brown and recovered the pull-shade.
Mirror and glass containers: Tent clearance at Craft Warehouse
Peace and Hope sings: $1 Christmas ornaments at Walmart
Sliver Dish: Yardsale
Tile and Hardware: Home Depot
Dresser: Goodwill $25!
Large frame: Thrift store $3! I used drywall to back it, and painted it black. The other frames are from the Goodwill also.
The sign says, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.
The picture….is WAY too old. (I have two more kids now…time to change it!)
Cloche: Yardsale
Lamp base and candle: Goodwill (I used fabric around it)
Plant and grass rocks: Dollar store
Lamp shade: Walmart
Stick table runner: Yardsale (I think originally from Potterybarn)
Vase: Goodwill. I dressed it up with burlap and a strip of fabric
Sticks: outside and Hobby Lobby
Pic frame: Dollar Store
Tray: Christmas clearance at Walmart $2
So, there it is! Now back down to working in the basement 🙂

  47. When shopping for outdoor lighting fixtures for your home’s main entryway, it’s important to choose a fixture style and finish that complements the design of your home.
