Entryway Design Idea

We are fast approaching our 5th month in our new home, and I keep wishing and hoping if I just budget a little bite more, cut back on my BAD Tim Horton’s coffee addiction daily and not go into a single store for those spur of the moment shopping runs of oh I ran out of toilet paper or milk then maybe I can put $$$ aside for my decorating projects I’ve been day dreaming&dootling in my design notebook which has grown to 5 or 6 books now, lol…

Then, it came to me.. After running into centsational girl and viewing all of her amazing diy projects she’s done (& makes it totally look so easy plus her simple tutorials) my hubz (which i am forever grateful for, he can make/fix anything) and I could so totally do this on our own.

MY DIY DREAMLAND

I’ve been doing a lot of research on diy home improvements and I am very confident we can pull this off. Considering the fact as a little girl 4-5 years old while growing up I watched my dad build a 2 1/2 car garage with an attic & insulated it himself, also within that year he built a shed, within the following years remodeling the basement and re-doing the roof & siding.

I can’t hardly wait to try it out on my own. I swear I should’ve been an interior decorator. I love to look at the millions of possibilities a room can be done. I could sit for hours and look at different home decor & do it yourself magazines. You should see my collection…

Here is one of my personal favorite design of entryways/mudrooms I had found from centsational girl’s blog

This gorgeous entryway with white board & batten is a classic design

Just the basic board & batten has the feel of a Built-In look-a-like is very convincing..

Here these bronze hooks give this design a classic look to use for the whole fam

Simple floral decor is timeless approach

At this angle, the seamless ledge gives you added shelving for proud pictures to be displayed

Final pieces displays beautiful family photo’s (as art work)of the children that will enjoy this space for a lifetime to come.

Displaying photo’s of the family is the best part. I love the lil piggies…

Add a couple of jackets, toys and other outdoor essentials completes centsational girl’s basic board & batten project..

I can’t wait to re-do my entryway now, so much inspiration centational girl has given me, she did an amazing job, don’t you agree?
