My Entry Way Reveal

I've finally finished decorating our entry way!  Since the hubby still has one more year of school we are still in an apartment and thus, are limited on what we can do.  BUT I think the entry way turned out nice!

I started with this lovely console table (which is actually a bookcase from Office Depot).  There's not much light in the entry way so I added the lamp and a couple of my favorite picture frames that I had lying around.  So this is what it looked like about a month ago.

Here's a close up of the pictures.  This was before baby Noah was born.

I also got these cute baskets to go in the shelves (also from Office Depot).  Love them!

This is what it looks like now.

Once Noah was born I of course wanted one picture of each of my cute boys so I needed to get a new frame because the one that previously had our family picture in it is pink.  I moved that one somewhere else and got the cute blue one you see there.  Here's a close up.

So that's what you see right when you walk into our little place.  There's also space on the wall next to the door, so I put this cute quote in vinyl to remind me to enjoy my little guys, even when it's a challenge :)

One thing though:  I can't decide between the "family" letters you see picture above or the "welcome" blocks below.  Both are bigger than what I would ideally want, so I can't decide which looks better.  Of course if I went with the welcome blocks  I would get rid of the family letters and put the blocks in that spot.

 I made the blocks with a 4x4 (which is actually a 3 1/2 x 3/12 my step dad tells me).  He cut one into blocks for me and I covered the fronts with scrapbooking paper and cut vinyl letters to go on them. 

What do you think?

Baby Noah is one month today.  Time flies!  He's still being a little angel (so grateful for that!), but of course he (and his brother) are still keeping my very busy! 


  1. I like the family since you have pictures of family there...if no-one would steal them I'd say put the welcome ones on your porch :)

  2. Looks great!

  3. Looks really nice! Toss up between the two. You could always put the Family blocks on a mantle or above a door, that way you could you both. Always hard, I can find either nothing or too much for a certain spot.

  4. Love it - love the blocks, love the Welcome and Family thoughts! Your foyer is warm, welcoming, and beautiful - thanks for sharing at the Sundae Scoop link party!

  5. Love love your quote is so beautiful... may I borrow it for my blog? The entry is so warm and inviting! Love it!
