It has been such fun for me to take all of these ideas and principles that I share with you and use them on a fresh new space!
This is the entry in my new home, I am wanting to show you how you can use what you have already and how to add a few "new" items, to create a comfortable, cozy home. I will explain!
This was the entry BEFORE.
It was painted and I did lay the rug. Both of those things can make such a difference.
Now the rug---I knew that I wanted a large rug to soften up all of the tile in the large entry, and as you know when you have a new place you just want new everything. But it all starts to add up.
So I have been spending some time in the online classifieds in my area. In my local area it is ksl.com. Items are listed for sale and you can find almost anything.
I found this rug brand new for $70.00. It was a color and style that I liked and it would go with items that I already had.
The cabinet next to the front door I was able to get for $100.00. It did have some dings and scratches but nothing I could not fix up.
As you continue around there is a bathroom (which I will talk more about in another post) and then the entrance into the kitchen.
The door at the end of the hallway is a bedroom. I am standing there taking the next photo towards you.
Here is a shot from the bedroom door through the entry and into the living room.
What a difference it can make adding some of your own personality to your home!
I am hoping that as I share different photos and ideas that it helps you to create a more cozy and comfortable home for your family.
Many BEFORE and AFTERS to be had at Between Naps on the Porch!
