Entry, Before and After

I wanted to show you the BEFORE and AFTER
of this entry way,
using items we found in the home.



Wow, what a difference it can make,
adding a few cozy elements.

We found the dresser downstairs in storage --- it made a perfect place to put the lamp (lighting) and the basket of flowers (natural element) which were also in storage.

The ottoman was in the family room just because there was no where else for it.
We added a couple of pillows and a throw (fabric), that had coordinating colors from the art and the flowers.

It is now a welcoming entry!"

What a fun transformation.

There are more transformations at
Between Naps on the Porch

    Oh I love what you did. It is different than the standard entry. The tall dresser fills the space and uses all the height that is there.

    You did a great job rearranging things. I love thinking outside the box and going around the house to see what I can use in a different location.

    The red lamp shade adds such a wonderful spark of color, just makes the entire entryway sparkle!

    Absolutely! I can't believe you had that beautiful piece of furniture in storage! It looks so much more inviting now in your entryway!

    I like to both ways. You need a little place to sit in an entry. What I like best is that you are trying out different things. It's refreshing to changes things up once in a while.
