Our Entryway

I think Spring is beginning to be in our near future! This winter has been a cold one, and now here comes the mud. Speaking of mud, our entryway got a good cleaning this past weekend. We don't have a 'mudroom' per say, but our entryway is the catch all to our house. Unfortunately, it is the same room that we enter from the garage and the same room that our front door opens up to when our guests walk in. Having 5 people's shoes, coats, backpacks and everything else it can be a nightmare to keep clean.

I would LOVE to have a fancy dancy entryway/mudroom that had one of these babies in it!! With a cubbie for every person, it would make this momma happy!!


But for now we make due with what we have. I put a couple nails on the sides of an old antique cabinet to hang coats and snow pants up on, and in the inside of the cabinet it holds our shoes.

Last year about this time we freshened up the whole inside of the house with a new paint job. The walls going up the stairs were gross, and that is putting it nicely, they were dirty, disgusting!

Can't believe I showed that picture, but it was over 10 years of wear and tear, soooo they got this paint job! I walk out of our bedroom every morning to this view.

The walls look TONS better. Our entryway is in the basement and you walk up stairs to our main level. This is the view when you walk in and look up.

This is the view of when you look straight forward when you walk in our front door.

We have a bathroom, laundry room and our master bedroom down stairs. The door on the left is the bathroom and the laundry is straight ahead. This is what the front door looks like, coming from the laundry room.

Some people perhaps wouldn't like a basement bedroom, but we love it. It is a very large room and we have an awesome walk in closet. Our room also has a very large window so it doesn't feel like we are in a basement.

These photo's are looking down from upstairs.

These are photo's when just getting to the top of the stairs.

I showed you our living room shelves.

It is crazy how a little paint can completely give a space a face lift! Along with a pop of color, notice I have a brown, orange and blue wall all in the same room. It may not be everyone's style, but I love color and going all neutral would be way to boring for me to handle. Maybe someday, but for now I will enjoy my touches of neutral with my pops of color.

Until next time,
