Entryway Makeover on a Budget

This post was sponsored by Wayfair. All opinions are mine.

Hello, friends! You know how much I love a good decor project. I especially love “challenges”. Challenging myself to makeover a space within a certain budget is SO fun for me. Since we moved into a new house in January, I have had the most fun planning spaces and watching my ideas come to life.

One of the empty spaces in my house that I knew I wanted to dress up was my entryway.

Entryways/foyers are such an important and underrated area of the house. It’s the first thing you see when you come home, and the last thing you see when you leave. I had a mission to make ours welcoming and representative of our family style. Since we moved in, it has just been a blank wall that you see when you open up the front door. Here’s a photo of what I’m talking about:

Meh, right?

My vision was to add a minimalist style accent table and a large round mirror as the “bones” of the space. I knew I wanted a modern lamp as well, preferably glass. I chose a table that wasn’t too large, as I knew I wanted to place my faux fiddle leaf fig right next to it. I kind of love being greeted with greenery when I walk in!

The three pieces I bought from Wayfair specifically for this project were the table, the mirror and the lamp. The grand total for all three was right at $250, which was literally a STEAL. I am still so impressed with the prices and the quality of these pieces! The rest of the items were things I already owned (just like you could), but I did link to similar items below, just in case.

Is your entryway decorated? What’s something that is important for you to see first thing when you get home?

    Gosh, I keep seeing those cute baskets everywhere!! I’m thinking they might be great for holding my daughter’s random toys that seem to appear out of nowhere!
