Home Is Where My Story Begins

One Last Change in the Entry Way – For Now

I’ve been on a quest to warm up my entry way without spending a lot of money. Last week I shared a few changes.


Flowers from my garden are lining the half wall.


Warmer pillows, stolen from the living room, and a throw bring in that cozy fall feel.


I decided to darken the colors, in the corner by the door. I had an unstained cedar coat rack, which I gave a coat of dark brown stain and some varathane. Then I ORB’ed my shoe basket. (For those of you who don’t live in the blogging world too often, ORB is Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. It’s a blogger’s best friend.) I’m loving the darker color. The back of my door will soon be a nice deep brown stain too… more on that HUGE project later.


My entry is feeling a little cozier now and ready for fall. I’d still like to get a rich red rug, instead of the small tan rug that is by the door now. I’ll put that on the wish list. 🙂

Here are some linky parties I like to participate in.

    It looks great Becca! I really like how you warmed it up and the basket looks great! Isn't ORB the best thing ever???? A red rug would really top it all off!! Everything has actually made your paint color look warmer too!
