A few weeks ago I showed you some before pictures and plans for our entryway revamp. Happy to report that the space is in much better shape and we are already getting comments from guests that the space is 100 times more welcoming. That combined with the fact that we only spent a few hundred dollars on this whole project makes me a happy girl! I still need to patch up a few paint blotches and scrape up a few spills, which is getting harder to do with my 36-week belly in the way!
I adore that black and white photograph from Minted to complete this neutral space, as it will always remind me of our recent trips to Paris. I’m really loving the new thin matte black metal frames that Minted offers – they are not too thick and super chic.
I picked up the coat hooks from Anthropologie because they reminded me of some of the old curly-cue type elements of the railings outside on our porch. They’re super functional for hanging our guests coats when they walk through the door so they don’t end up all over the furniture.
If I stumble across the perfect doormat I might add it to the space, but it does feel nice the way it is now without one, and we’re a lot better about vacuuming and sweeping out there now that it looks prettier.
I’d also love to do some work on the outside of the entryway on the porch including painting our mailbox, getting a new doormat, and transplanting our topiary tree, so I’d say this is still a work in progress, but I’m super happy with the results so far!
