House Projects: Entryway

Since we finally have a house of our own, I’m slowly trying to decorate it the way I want it.  I’m trying to go for a minimalist decorating style.  I’m tired of being surrounded by so much stuff.  And, since we have a bigger house to clean, it makes it easier if we have less stuff in the house to be cleaned.

I’m working on the entryway right now… or at least this week.  I’m trying not to get too bogged down in each area of the house, or I’ll neglect everything else and not get anything finished.

Here are some pictures of the entryway from different viewpoints.  I did the “Command Center” area already, and now I’m working on the small table and that wall above it.

My front door also has a small window beside it.  I want to find some small curtain to go there.  That’s project #2!

I asked some people’s opinions about what I should do above the table, and a lot of people seem to think that a mirror would look good there.  I’m going to paint the table first, and then see what kind of mirror I would like to put there.  At least to try it out.  I think that’ll be a good idea!

Project #1

The previous homeowners left a lot of paint here from the different projects they had done around the house.  One of the small walls in the dining room has one wall painted gray.  I’m going to use their leftover paint and do the table the same color.  I tested it by starting inside the drawer, then if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t have anything to cover up!

I liked the way the table turned out.  Now I just have to find the perfect mirror set to go on the wall above it.  But that’s for another time.
