Vintage Inspired Entryway

I’ve been doing a lot of Spring cleaning lately. And by that I mean rearranging all the things and emptying out junk drawers. Close enough, right? This week my focus was on sprucing up our front entryway. I’ve just been bored with this space. Does that ever happen to you? You just get tired of looking at the same things in the same spot. And then all of a sudden you can’t stand it anymore and it has to be changed immediately or nothing will be right in the world. Yep, that’s what happened here. It was definitely time for a makeover. So I cranked up some music, poured myself a cup (or three) of coffee, and shopped the house a bit to create this vintage inspired entryway.

This old door has been in my garage for a while now, sitting lonely and sad, just waiting to be brought back to life. It’s a little more narrow than a typical door, so it fits really well in this spot. I love it paired with my cute little yellow bench. And I know what you’re thinking…how many old doors can one girl have in a single house? Many, my friends. Many.

The home sign was really easy to create. I found the vintage “home” cutout at an antique show last summer. I simply hung it from a few nails on this old piece of wood and voila!

Those of you that follow me on Instagram know that I’ve been dying to paint my fireplace white. It’s been on my to-do list forrrrrrever. Well, technically just since last July when we moved in, but you get the idea. I’m happy to say that I’m planning to tackle this project in the next few weeks–it’s on my summer project list. Painting brick is something I’ve never done, so I am a little nervous, but I cannot wait to see the transformation. Stay turned for that project!

So that’s my entryway makeover. I’m so glad I finally made myself dedicate a little time and energy to this space. It’s crazy how a few simple changes can make an entire room feel brand new. And the best part is I didn’t have to spend any money. That is a big plus in my book. Thanks so much for stopping by friends! Be sure to track me down on Facebook and Instagram, where I’m sharing all the things all the time.

    I love the changes! Looks so welcoming! I painted my brick fireplace white several years ago and I love how it changed my whole room. The bricks had a lot of pink…yeah…pink and I was not a fan. My husband and I are almost done with paining the bricks on the outside of the house. I love the way it has turned out. Good luck with yours! It’s very easy, although the bricks soak up a lot of paint.

      I’m not sure Keisha, it was painted that color when I got it. Sorry I can’t be more help!

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .
.
The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
