Front Entrance Freshening

Two weeks ago I wrote about all the problems I have with my front entrance and many of you could relate. In fact, after sharing my front entrance woes, I received an email asking if I would share some tips for organizing and beautifying a front entrance. Since I’m currently working on the plans and sourcing for my own transformation, I thought I’d share the process I’m going through and break it down into 6 steps.

 Step One. Purge anything you no longer use and store occasional or seasonal items elsewhere.

Step Two. Provide storage baskets and/or hooks for each family member.

Step Three. Apply soft-colored paint or wallpaper to freshen up the walls.

Step Four. Replace lack-lustre builder light fixtures with an interesting style, such as pendants or hurricane lanterns.

Step five. Choose an area rug for design and function.

Step Six. Add a small table, bench or stool if the space allows. Hang a mirror and/or artwork and accessorize.

      Hi Tiffany,
      I have so many projects going on right now and I wish I could say I would have my entrance done by the end of March, but it won’t be the case. We are starting our basement renovation and that will be taking most of the focus right now and the entrance will be after that. I’ll keep you posted!

    I love a well organized and welcoming entry. I recently restyled ours I would love it if you stopped by to check it out. I restyled a $12 dresser and it looks so good in the space! Have a great day I love your blog.
