Entryway Changes Over the Last Year

Hi everyone!
How has the weather been in your part of town?
It has been so up and down here...one week our temperatures are in the low 40's and 30's and the next week we have temps in the 60's and 70's...and sometimes we have rain in between or just cloudy skies which are no fun. We are hoping it clears up this week and warms up so we can enjoy some more outside time then what we have been getting. I need some sun! :)

Well, today I just wanted to post some pictures of how our entryway has progressed over the past year...it has come a long way.
When I look back at some of the Before Before pictures, I am kind of surprised at how I decorated and what I thought looked good kind of looks unfinished...but that's how it seems to be when I decorate. I like changing things up a bit, although NOT a surprise. :)

So to start, I added this $9 table from the thrift store that I painted and refinished the hardware. I use it to store my crafts and things and it's where I blog.

We still have the gallery wall but I have since changed out some of the pictures for newer ones.

Then came the coat rack...we needed some place to put our coats, sweaters, bags, etc. and this was the perfect spot for that.

The bronzed hooks are from Home Depot and I love them! They have held up pretty well for our heavy coats and bags.

And when a friend and I took a trip to IKEAI found this shoe storage that I painted and added new hardware to. It is something we are so thankful for and our daughter loves to take her shoes in and out of this thing. It's a game to her. :)

And now our entryway looks like this!

Well, the floral chair isn't there and the curtains have changed...but so far I am loving it!
It is a space that is very usable now and offers great storage that we didn't have before.

Do you change up parts of your home?

Thanks for stopping by!
