Simple Christmas Entryway

So if you’ve been following along over on IG stories lately, you might know that I’ve been in the most ridiculous and never-ending dilemma with my front entryway. That actually sounds a lot more serious that it really is, BUT I have been struggling with this space for a while now. You might remember that little cabinet I found at an antique store for our entryway several months ago. Well I loved it, but for whatever reason I never could style it in a way that really worked for our small entryway. I don’t know if it’s because it was too big for the spot or maybe my stylin’ skills were just off. Either way I fiddled with that area for way too long before I finally decided to move the cabinet and replace it with something else. And lucky for me, I was browsing on The Home Depot website late one night when I stumbled on one of the most gorgeous wooden chairs I’ve EVER seen. I immediately ordered it and styled it in our entryway for Christmas!

Isn’t she a beauty?! Really, I think this wooden chair is the prettiest chair I’ve ever seen. I love how unique it is and I instantly fell in love the minute I saw it. It has a sandblasted finish, which gives it a very beachy/cottage-y vibe. Plus it reminds me of an old antique with all the details and curves. And it’s actually made from Himalayan sheesham wood! I loooooooove it so much and I think it fits in our small entryway perfectly.

I kinda feel like this chair was the find of the century–I’ve never seen one like it. And can you believe this if from The Home Depot? I was surprised too, but they’re actually carrying a lot of really great home decor and furniture online now. Plus they have tons of holiday decor and everything over $45 ships FREE. You can even shop by room and style, which is super handy.

I wanted to keep this entryway space really simple for Christmas, so I just used of my mini trees, that cute reindeer feed bag, and a couple of stockings. I almost put a throw pillow in that chair, but I just couldn’t stand to cover up all those details and intricate woodwork so I went with a simple blanket instead. Easy peasy, just how I like it!

Well I hope you enjoyed today’s post and maybe got an idea or two for your own home! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I always appreciate it!

      No I didn’t paint it, but it does look quite a bit lighter in person than the photo shows online! It’s definitely more white than cream.
