Simple Welcoming Farmhouse Entryway

Small Simple Farmhouse Entryway

One of the most challenging space in our home to decorate is the entryway. Partly, because we don’t have a designated entryway. The front door open straight up into the living room and we have a very long wall that spans this space. However, I think I have finally found the solution, at least for now.

But.....let's take a look at the very before of this space. This is close to when we first bought our manufactured home.

Double-wide remodel progress - you won't believe how this family is adding their own touch of farmhouse style to their double wide.

Oh yes, someone before us added their lovely faux brick technique to this wall! This was after we tore down some weird divider that they had put up and we tore out the very nasty carpet!

After we tore the carpets out, we painted the floors with floor paint and lived with that for quite some time. We also used shiplap on the walls to give it more of a farmhouse feel. You can tell in the above photo how the door opens right up into our family room and just how long that wall is. Not a pretty photo but it was progress from what we started with. Then we started adding hardwood flooring and the space has slowly transformed into one that I love.

I crave and love a very simple style of decorating. Our family of six often has company and a couch and loveseat simply do not provide enough seating. So, I began searching local for sale sites and found these wing-back chairs that had a great shape but they were in desperate need of a makeover. It took hours of work but I finally finished one of the wing-back chairs. I loved the way it turned out but I ended up wanting a lighter color of fabric so that the wood on the chair would really stand out. Are you ready for the after?

These two chairs have been some of my greatest finds and quite possibly my favorite makeover. I love the element and texture that they have added to this simple entryway. You can see the wing back chair makeover HERE.

I am so pleased with the after! They were exactly what this space needed and they provide the extra seating that we need. I am no seamstress covering expert but I finally figured out a way to make these over and if I can do it, then so can you!

One of my favorite things about this area in our home, is that only one thing was purchased brand new. Everything else came from flea markets or local for sale sites. The peg rail was the only new purchase I made and it came from Hobby Lobby during one of their 50% off sales.

A little bit of paint really transformed the wooden lamp base that I found at a flea market and the dresser that I found at a local tag sale. The dresser is an antique and it works perfectly in the entry way. One of the drawers holds all of our vehicle keys and the other one is where my husband places his wallet, hat and belt at the end of the day. The drawers are also great for holding our library books, we always know where they are, and they are easy to pack up before we head out the door.

This area almost feels complete to me. I still want to add a narrow long rug and possibly remove the chalkboard to add a few vintage photos. We also still need to add trim. For now, this space is one that I really love and enjoy. I am super happy that with just some creativity and great finds this space has turned out to be a simple farmhouse entry that I can enjoy.
