Inexpensive Entryway updates

Hi friends,

As you may know from previous posts, I have a long list of items that I want to do to our front entryway. Many of these things cost money. And I have spent most of my money buying this house. So I am finding inexpensive 'workarounds' until I can afford the real deal.

I found this grey circle mirror at HomeSense:


It's very elegant looking. I am tempted to paint it gold. We'll see if I find the time. And the table is at the top of the list to go. I have plans to paint an Ikea table gold. But then I don't want too much gold. People will come into the house and think I am a royal wannabe. Decisions. Decisions.

We've also recently acquired some inexpensive cushions for the bench.


Not sure I love these though. They will likely go on the 'take back' list for this weekend. Do you have 'take back' days like I do? I never know how something will work until I see it. It's a process - no way around it.

In other notes, it's hard to tell from the pictures but my husband re-painted the entryway Benjamin Moore Cloud White. In real life it looks so much lighter and brighter. Before it was dingy cream color. So glad to see it go.

I leave you today with this amusing item:


Thanks for stopping by!
