My entryway primping turned out so great! Take a look!
The umbrella holder is from Z gallerie and the pillow cover is from PB teens. My husband gave me four different $25 gift cards to different places (for our anniversary) and one of them was for Pottery Barn. It was great because I have been wanting this pillow cover. It turned out perfect because it was exactly $25 with free shipping! I love it when things work out like that!
Thanks to my beautiful readers who said I should get baskets for under our bench! They are great for shoes!
The wine/birdcage stand turned out pretty great after I spray painted it gold. I added a piece of chevron fabric to the glass counter part. I think it adds a little something extra to it. I will have to get fun little things to add to it and will keep you posted as it evolves.
What they looked like before.

Leah, you get projects done so quickly! I love it! I adored the church pew before, but now it's perfect! And the wine rack looks amazing painted gold and the fabric is genious! Great job! Have a wonderful Monday :)

i love the pops of colour! and what a great idea of your commenters to say to use the baskets under the bench! we turned a cabinet by our back door into a "shoe cubby" so when my kids come home they just throw them in there. i am dying over that apple green velvet tufted chaise..... and the umbrella holder is adorable. great job!

Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy said...

That umbrella holder is amazing! My front entryway is much like yours, so I'm definitely going to take some of your ideas when I finally get around to making it over.

Very pretty! The baskets are a great idea ~ they are wonderful for hiding lots of things, but keep them handy enough to get to. I love your green settee ~ what a fun piece! Thanks for your visit today! : )
