Entryway Makeover part 1

Oct 7th, 2010

The entryway in our home has been on my “to do” list ever since we moved in over a year ago. I’m actually surprised that it has taken me this long to get started. I have a little bit of anxiety about it because it is the first thing that people see when they visit. I knew I wanted to add some character, but I was a little gun shy for some reason.

When we moved into our home, everything was a neutral tan. Neutral can be good, and I have a lot of the same color throughout the house. But, I wanted the entryway to demonstrate more about my personal style. I think that is a problem that a lot of people go through when they buy a new home. It was overwhelming! How do you add character to a new home!?! My home was an empty canvas just waiting for attention. (At least that is how I viewed it).

Are you excited to see what we do in here!?! Well, you won’t have to wait long because the transformation has already begun!

Here are the before pictures.

I told you it was NEUTRAL! Give me a few days, and you’ll see the space transform!


  1. OH! I'm super excited to see what you've done! :o)

  2. Ohhh, can't wait!

  3. Your entry way is 99% like mine… that was kind of funny, I had to take a double look… can't wait to see what you do.

  4. Show us show us!!! I can't wait to see the re-do!!

  5. I love the high ceilings in your entryway, it looks very GRAND!
    Can't wait to see the transformation!!

  6. Okay, you've peaked my curiosity, too! Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve!

  7. Maybe at Marni's says:

    I was really excited to see your project… hurry and finish. I have a very similar entry way that I just hired a designer to help with. I'm especially curious to see what you do with the door color and the wall treatment ?

    Good Luck !!
