An entryway is an introduction.
Like the opening pages of a book, it leads us in and welcomes us to the world inside.”
Have you ever thought when you open your door you are letting the world in? When I was designing my entryway I wanted this area to welcome people in as well as give a glimpse into the style of our home. I love to create on a budget and our entryway was just that..... a complete DIY project on a budget.
I created this shiplap wall from hardboard I ripped down (tutorial here)
I refinished this entryway table and added a new pallet wood top (tutorial here)
and then there is our painted floor! I love this floor and it is always a conversation starter. (tutorial here)
I made this beautiful book page wreath (video tutorial here)
and last but not least most of our entryway decor has been thrifted and collected over the last 5 years to complete our entryway.
We recently moved into a new home. I wanted this entryway to welcome my guests just as well as the one above did. It is a longer entryway so I got a little creative with wainscoting. See the full entryway here
I don't think you can ever have enough gallery walls, and this one by Lilian Hope Designs is just beautiful! What a wonderful way to welcome people into your home!
I am drawn to how bright and airy this entryway by Bless'er House is! isn't that foyer bench just amazing? It makes me want to sit down and stay awhile...I hope that is okay 😉
If you are looking for a high impact low budget way to add charm to your entryway Thrifty & Chic has you covered. How awesome is this makeover.... I love the square batten and board.
And last but certainly not least The House of Smith's turned her little closet into the perfect entry to her home. She has the complete tutorial of how how she did this too!
