The problems: the entry way

 So I have been stuck in many ways with this entry way and what we need 
When we moved in it looked like this:

Big stark white walls and kind of a mess

The issues I have with this wall is 
1. the closet is behind the door when it is open and hard to get to
2. We have a room divider that serves no other purpose than to throw stuff
3. There is a big blank wall after the closet that is "just there" 

So after I painted the living room Crocodile tears by Olympic, got a coat rack from ikea, a mirror from Gordmans and a side table fromTJ maxx this is what we had. 
(sorry, for the blurry picture)
Kinda bland and semi-functional. 
I have some ideas and have been looking around pinterest for some inspiration.
This is what I have found:

I love the mixture of textures

Again, love the textures and old/new look.

Love the functionality of it

So, my entry way needs to have a few things:
1. storage
2. functionality for bills, mail, magazines, etc.
3. Somewhere to put your keys
4. Look good and match the rest of the house

Are you working on or thinking of a new project?



  1. I love rustic decor. If you can incorporate even one or two of those projects, I'm sure it'll transform the space!
