Okay… if you are paying attention to the pics above your probably thinking “What? That is not her entry!”. You would be right. I will get to that in a minute, but before that I just want to say that I was wrong. Yup. I. WAS. WRONG! This past week I posted about my master bedroom dresser update. If you read that then you already know how I put a zillion nail holes in my wall trying out new art work for above my dresser. I finally decided that the entry hall art that I had updated would be better in my bedroom. I was happy. At least I thought I was, until one hour after posting I was in Ross and found this:
I was in love and knew that the entry hall piece that I thought I could live with? I couldn’t! I scooped this piece up and had it hanging in my bedroom in under an hour. For reals! I don’t just love it…. I Lurve it!!!
The perfect colors! (although it looks a little yellow here, it really is a perfect match for the curtains in real life!) The perfect size: BIG! It makes my heart sing it is so perfect! Every time I walk into the room I want to shout TA DA!!!! Spot light please! There was nothing really wrong with the entry hall art in here, I was just ready for some color.
Now I know you are wondering when I am going to show you my entry hall update, so here it is…
So here is just a quick reminder of what it used to look like. Kinda boring, plain, outdated color, no rug…. I could go on and on. After taking down the art and almost playing slip and slide on a wet tile floor last week, I decided a few things had to change!
One… I needed a new umbrella stand! I found this one and loved the design but it was way too dark in the entry. Gold metallic spray paint to the rescue!
Two… I needed an new rug! No more slip and slid for the Queen! I have given up on rugs for the most part due to the fact that I have a psycho cat that LOVES to destroy any rug that isn’t in my living area. But enough was enough. Safety first, right? I found this rug when I found the bedroom art work. I wish it were a little larger but it fits the bill! I usually like to find an entry rug that has all of the colors of my downstairs rooms in it. I feel like it just ties things together. This time that proved to be a bigger challenge than I had anticipated. The entry is right off of the dining room, which is navy and off white, so this works. Plus, my entry table and mirror are navy.
This is my updated entry hall. Umbrella stand, check. Painted gold, check. New rug, check. Artwork hung, check. Much more functional. I still admit that I am looking for artwork to hang in here that makes my heart sing just like the one in my bedroom does. But until then I am more than content with this one!
Until next time…..
