Entryway Reveal


The Entryway.

I’ve been done with it for about a month, but was still posting about all the little projects.

I’ll be glad to get this all posted and to mentally be able to move on.

Before After

These are a few of the nasty befores

…as I mentioned in my Before Post, this was a rental common space, which means it was everyone’s and no ones and it was NASTY!

 I chose to work on the entryway area first.

I don’t think I could have handled walking into coats everywhere, dirty walls, brown linoleum and shag brown carpet for very long!

Flowers for Spring in the Entry

It always feels good to be welcomed home by a beautiful space!

Morrocan Starry Night Stencil Wall

Royal Design Studio offered me a stencil, and I knew just the wall to use it on.

You can see more about my Rhinestone Stenciled Entry wall here.


Since there were SO many projects that went into this space, I’ll add them all at the end of the post.

Then you’ll know why this space took us 5 months to finish!


Don’t you love old house windows! This is one of my favorite original parts of this 1904 craftsman.


You can see a peak of our Coat Closet Renovation to the right. It was an under the stair space turned closet.

That has been a huge life organizer, and I’m SO glad we took that project on to begin with!

So there you have it. The entryway is now officially done and posted on.

Now onto the last couple projects of the stairway!
