Our Entryway Decor!

So, here was our entryway:


So here was our photo 3165998-1


Normal, boring, full of shoes! We added that hook when we first moved in for our keys! Now that I want to spruce up our house, I figured the entryway needed a little revamp


Now:


So here was our photo 3165998-2So here was our photo 3165998-3


It looks SOO much better!! :) And it didn't cost us alot! We already had the board, and the spray paint to paint it gray. We just bought the hooks, the prints, and the frames :)


The print on the left says "welcome to our home" and the print on the right is our house number 719! :) Let me know what you ladies think!! I would love to put a bench underneath, but there is seriously no room :( I'm open to suggestions of something else to add to it!!

Love the hooks and art prints, looks so cute!! :)


I was gonna suggest a cubby bench with baskets for your shoes!  Now way it'll fit though, huh?  If you can't find one small enough, maybe DIY?  I found some amazing DIY bench ideas on http://ana-white.com/.  We are probably going to use some of her instructions to build our own instead of buying because we need a custom height in order to accomodate a vent in the floor. :)

Ooooo, that's a good idea Allie!! There *might* be a way I could do it, but there is literally only three feet of space in that area, our entryway is teeny tine because it's a split level. And I don't want to crowd that space, since if we have more than one person coming in at a time people are usually crowded in that space.

Good job!  Could you do another rack near the ground for the shoes?  Like this (Pinterest):

That looks awesome!  Great work :)


I ordered stuff from the same Etsy seller, but things take much longer to ship to Canada.  *sigh*
