• Tell Your Friends

Hello hello everyone, it’s Kate back again in Part Three of this continuing series, and this week’s focus is on sprucing up secondhand finds for the entry! The first space you encounter each day as you come through the door is your foyer, and a smart entry has a few key essentials.  When you come through the door, you need a place to set the daily mail, your keys and your phone. It’s also nice to have a place to sit and kick of your shoes!

Consider that the entry is also the last space you leave each day, so a mirror is not only decorative but a place to add lipstick at the last second, fix your hair, or straighten your tie or scarf. Mirrors can be large or small, but how fun is it to transform a tired piece found at the back of a thrift store or in the corner of a garage sale? Study these stylish transformations for inspiration for your foyer.

A small scale bench in the entry is a natural choice for taking off shoes at day’s end. Again, like in the bedroom, paint and fabric are your best friends! Personalize an entry bench with a stylish stripe, a punch floral, or an eclectic textile.

A place to drop your keys, mail, and phone is a must in an entry. Take the opportunity to bring both style and function into your home with a revamped thrift store console or Craigslist dresser placed in your foyer. Style it up with art, lamps, or a tray to corral the mail and keys.

Consoles and Dressers(Green cabinet from Young House Love; Painted entry console from Design*Sponge; Garage sale score from Decor Chick; 70s dresser turned console from Sweet Pickins Furniture)

Entries need not be merely functional, they can be stylish too, all with pieces scored on a weekend treasure hunt or reinvented with new stain or paint. I hope you all are enjoying these inspirational finds. Next week we’ll take a peek at some very cool ideas for turning secondhand finds into chic dining room accents. Stay tuned!
