As you can see from the photo above our entryway was out of control! Heaven forbid you came home after a couple glasses of wine, you’d most likely end up tripping and fall on the floor, no, that never happened to me… Out of my love for design, or perhaps frustration, I set out to makeover our entryway. As always I was on a budget! I sold the antique table in the picture for $30 to fund this project.
After! No more shoes, well those are props! I found this storage ottoman for $4 at the thrift store and totally revamped it. DIY to come next week. We had extra wood from the growler project and made the key hooks. I couldn’t be happier.
This DIY key hook was super simple and only took a few minutes, once the wood was stained, to put together. DIY to come later this month. Can you believe this only cost $5 to make!
Is it possible to be in love with tassels? These were really fun to make and a great evening project while listening to music or watching a bad TV show.
Storage ottoman to the rescue! I can put my purse, work bag, the coin jar and any other pieces that are left around inside the ottoman in a few seconds! An easy way to keep the entryway tidy.
Obviously the blanket scarves need separate storage! That’s a given. I liked the contrast of the black ottoman with the beige metal basket.
I can’t wait to come home now and not worry about tripping hazards!
Let’s break down the budget!
Small Antique Side Table: $30 (sold on Craigslist)
Key Hook: $5
TOTAL COST: $16
Leftover Funds: $14 (this will go towards buying the materials for our front hall closet!)
