Entryway Make Over Before and After

I love a good make over.  What better place to start then at the front of the house?  It is the first impression people get when they walk in your home.  Hopefully, it reflects your style because it is an important part of your home. Your guests want to feel welcomed when they walk in and the entryway has the ability to do that.  I have a two story entryway so I needed decor pieces that would adequately fill the space.

My original console table was beautiful but was a little small.  I loved decorating it for Christmas with my nativity scene. I usually like change, but my parents gave me this table when we moved in so I was a little hesitant to get a new one.   The color of the console was beautiful and it matched well with my hardwood floors. Really the only thing it needed was to be a little larger. I was ready to update it and get a piece that fit the space a little better.  Below is a picture of our original console table and decor.  I love that picture of my babies when they were little.  By the way, it is still in the foyer. We just moved it by the door.  I couldn’t get rid of that.  This console table was also repurposed to a different room.  I love when that works out.  You feel like another room got a brand new piece of furniture.

This console table by Restoration Hardware is AHHH-Mazing.   I loved it as soon as I saw it.  The color is perfect and the style definitely fits our home.  I love how it has space to decorate on the upper and the lower sections. The decor is now spaced adequately and fits perfectly when you walk in the foyer.

I chose to use some color in the entryway and brought out some pink in the decor and artwork.  I love this painting from Minted by Katie Craig.  Check out my post on other Minted products that would be perfect for Mother’s Day gifts. You can’t go wrong with one of these gifts. If you’re looking for more entryway ideas check out this post I did last year.

  1. Jenn, I LOVE the makeover! The way you’ve decorated your new table feels so warm & welcoming. I can’t wait to have an entry way to decorate, that’s one thing our apartment is seriously lacking. Also glad you found a new home for your old table, it is just as gorgeous!

    1. Michelle,
      I love reading your comments. You always brighten my day. I literally have had the console sitting in my foyer (undecorated) for about 6 weeks. Finally my husband said, “Is there somewhere you want us to move that for you?”. HAHAHA!!!!! It may have taken me a while, but I really like the way it turned out. I’m so glad you liked it too. And yes, the old one needed a good home too.
