Entryway Makeover

Slowly but surely, our house is coming together. My mom took pity on me (after one frightening phone call to a man for hire on Craigslist) and came to help us paint. And boy did we! We alternated holding Anna, playing with Emerson, and painting until it felt like my arms could fall off.

We still have a long way to go, but I wanted to share some of our hard work so far.

This is how the entryway looked when we bought the house.

This was my Pinterest inspiration.
And this is how our entryway turned out!

Note the light fixture with the Edison bulb above. Also note that before we purchased this light fixture, I had never heard of an Edison bulb.

This update is much more our style. We're slowly but surely taking the 80s out of our house, and I am in love!

Oh, and speaking of love,  here's a sneak peek of Anna's newborn pictures! :)


  1. Oooh I think I need an Edison bulb and fixture somewhere;) the Anna pic is gorgeous!

  2. looks amazing!! :) SO GOOD! GOOD JOB! Did you paint the trim yourselves? or replace it?! it's STILL on my to-do list....

  3. Love your entryway and could Anna get any cuter!! Love that picture!
