Quick & Easy Farmhouse Style Small Entryway Makeover

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I have to say I am a little embarrassed by the before picture in this post, but it was important to show so you can really see the power of paint-and a stunning rustic Windmill doesn’t hurt either! More to come on that below! Ok-here it is:

Basically, it was an unpainted metal door with a Christmas sign still hanging-oops! The side by side picture really shows the difference.  This makeover came together so quickly. I don’t know why I waited so long. Here is what I did to create this inviting space.

COLOR-The gorgeous navy blue on the door totally sets the stage for this farmhouse makeover. I used Velvet Finishes in Handsome. This paint really looks like velvet-the finish is that smooth! I just saw this post about Farmhouse colors and navy is one of the top pics. I had no idea!

TEXTURE-This can be achieved easily with accessories. Nothing says farmhouse to me more than metal and cotton stems! I hung my DIY cotton ball wreath on the door and placed an Olive Bucket  filled with cotton stems on a small table by the door.

 WARMTH-The painted door immediately added warmth, but there is nothing like a soft rug to bring in warmth and texture. This sheepskin rug is the perfect size and very durable.

Pillows are another way to warm up a space and I will be sharing how I made this beautiful pillow tomorrow!

ORGANIZATION-A metal magazine holder is the perfect spot to place the daily mail and keep magazines handy. A shelf with pegs holds keys, scarves and tote bags that I can grab on my way out the door!

This Norman Rockwell print is near and dear to my heart, as it hung in my childhood home and was my Mom’s favorite picture. It fits perfectly with the farmhouse theme.

A storage bench holds shoes and slippers that I change out of to and from work. As this space is tiny, it’s important to have as much storage as possible. You can see how I refinished this bench here

STATEMENT PIECE-The star of the show is most definitely the cool windmill  I received from Custom Cut Decor who sponsored this post. I can’t tell you how excited I was when I received this piece! The rusty metal just makes my heart skip a beat! The patina is gorgeous and really pops against the navy door.  Custom Cut Decor has a full line of metal letters and wall art that you are sure to love. I knew right away this windmill would fill the space above the front door perfectly. Here is a closeup view:

Isn’t it just stunning? I love that it’s not something my neighbor will have and is just a little bit quirky! See the J sign to the left of the door?

I made that two years ago, yet it goes perfectly with the windmill. Some things are meant to be! A big thank  you to Custom Cut Decor . I am very grateful! Have a great day!

I love the new door color! So pretty, and yes, what a difference. Everything turned out great. Is that a bucket of cotton by the door? I love hosting #HomeMattersParty with you! :)
