Operation: Entryway Facelift

Our small apartment entryway has felt pretty drab since we moved in nearly three years ago. We were renting and planned on that being short term while we were on the hunt for a house. Well, it has turned into quite the "temporary" stay.

The narrow second story hall is all of 12 sq ft. with white walls, dark wood trim/door, and the ugliest of brown/orange carpets. Two dark rectangular mirrors flanked the hall and each carried two hooks for coats/keys.

Over the weekend I decided it was time for a much needed facelift. Of course this facelift needed to keep a few things in mind:

- SMALL budget (under $100)
- No new paint
- No new flooring
- No fixing/replacing trim
- No new lighting

It was going to be no easy task but of course Target and Lowes came to the rescue!

Shopping List:
- New round mirror
- Doormat
- Greenery (low light tolerant)
- Decorative pot

My total came in at roughly $75! The look is pretty minimalist and clean, which I love. The space feels so much brighter and more open without the old rectangular mirrors. A little greenery was the perfect finishing touch. It is definitely so much more fresh and inviting.

Check it out for yourself!
