Today I’m bringing you a quick little project that took me less than 30 minutes to pull together and cost only $6.00!
Does anyone actually use their front door anymore? We enter through our garage but when we have guests over, they enter through the side door. Unless we have a big party, we rarely use the front door but my hope is if I set it up right, I’ll finally have a welcoming entry guests will actually use!
I started with these pretty hooks that were a steal at Homegoods for $5.99 and I had a gift card so technically this entry set up cost me NOTHING! Install your hooks properly with a wood backer or drywall anchors for light use like I did here. Repurposing some “inventory” in my house helped to create a welcoming entry for guests to drop their bags and coats or take off shoes. Pulling this bench down from my master bedroom was the best decision. The only purpose it was serving there was collecting clothing and things I didn’t feel like putting away. Next I moved the pillows from the porch inside now that the wet and snowy weather has arrived and plopped them on this bench and the hanging basket was a Brimfield find. I just love repurposing...check out the “before”.
But don’t be fooled by my pretty staged pictures...if I pan over to the left, this is the real life view of my dining room (plus a pretty filter). Just for fun reminding you that those lovely photos folks share on social media likely aren’t their everyday view. Real life = messes. Have fun decorating and making your messy home your own! Bye friends, I’ve gotta go tidy up!
