The entry is definitely a work in progress, but it’s done for now so I can turn my attentions to another room so I thought I’d share it. Let’s start back at the beginning . . .
It was the first room we painted – probably because it seemed small and easy at the time. The rug below was in the entry of our last house but it didn’t seem to fit here, a little too busy for me.
So I tried it with no rug, but I really like the idea of something catching dirt when we walk through the door. Then I just turned that old run over . . . but it was just a little too blah.
At one point we had a little black and white striped rug in here – it didn’t last long because it was way too small, but I did kinda like how it looked. So I thought I’d just paint the rug – easy enough right?
First I tried white spray paint – not so much. Then I found some leftover paint in the garage. First coat wasn’t quite enough . . . but the second coat helped a bit. Then I just taped off some stripes and spray painted the black stripes (the spray paint worked this time). It’s definitely not perfect – and it’s still pretty rough underfoot, but I’m hoping over time as it gets some traffic it will soften up and wear down a bit. Time will tell.
But my favorite part of the room is this little baby. It’s a fabric wall cling and looks so fun on the wall. I used the Instagram Collage Template from Design Aglow – they have such great photo templates, love them! I have so many fun photos on my phone (and love Instagram – follow me @jenny192710) that don’t usually get off my phone, so this was a fun way to display my favorite ones. I love the wall cling too because you can reposition it, so it’s perfect for my indecisiveness and how often I like to switch things up.
