"The Grand Entrance!"

Ha, I'm not too sure about grand but it is our front door entry and I changed it up a bit!

I showed you yesterday my switching the green buffet from the Living Room and putting the dresser from the entry in its spot.

Well where do you think I put this beauty?

Ding, ding, ding, you are right! Yep, I put it in the entry!

Here are some before pictures of the entry during different holidays!

Easter last year!

Halloween a couple years ago!

This was just at Christmas! Sorry for the crazy picture!

And now this is how it looks today!

I thought this piece would give the entry more presence! Did I mention what a steal I got this piece for? Well I thought it was a steal at $150.00! There were no doors on the front because the gal is still painting them, so I just slid some baskets in their spot! I actually think she has forgotten all about me and the doors. I'm not planning on putting them on when and if I get them. I guess it would just be nice to have the option!

I then took the mirror from the Dining Room and did a switch-a-roo! These lamps were in the bedroom with kind of a brown suede fabric. I grabbed them out and then switched to these shades I found at Target on clearance!

Took the beast of a tree and moved that to the Dining Room in front of the window! Argh, its grown since I moved it! I think it's taking over!

The coat rack I found at TJ Maxx. I think I still have the tag on it. We have an entry closet as you can see in the far left but that is Claire's craft closet. Still thinking on the coat rack though. There are so many kids from the neighborhood that come over and they throw their coats on the floor or the banister. I just thought having the coat rack there, they might actually use it! So, should I keep it?

That's it for now folks!

More to come, I think I'm on a roll!

I like it! It's so fun to move things around inside the house. I'm been doing a little of that lately.

Definitely looks perfect for that wall, the dimensions work well and the colour is beautiful. I wouldn't have known that it had doors. The baskets are easier to throw stuff in anyway :)
