Entryway Refresh & Kitchen Update

It’s done y’all.  I finally have an entryway that I LOVE.  It only took one year, one month, two weeks, and one day to do it! 😂😂😂.  Better late than never though, right?

I should have known when it finally came together that it would be all thanks to Wayfair! LOL!   If you’ve followed me on Instagram you know that I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Wayfair.  They have the BEST selection of decor at some of the BEST prices.  They’re easy to shop, affordable, and have a gigantic selection of products to fit any and all styles.  Not to mention their customer service is BOMB!!!  They are seriously the ULTIMATE destination for all things home decor! So when they reached out and asked if I wanted to take on a little styling project with them, I COULD NOT PASS IT UP!!!  I can’t wait to show you guys what I came up with!


Before we jump in, as always, I just wanna say real quick, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for any and all affiliate links that you may use throughout this post.  I appreciate MORE THAN YOU know when you support the brands that help to support this little blog & our little fam!!
Also, a HUGE thanks to WAYFAIR for sponsoring today’s post and our fun ENTRYWAY & Kitchen Refresh projects!!

Per usual… we have to first take a look at the before!

Entryway Decor

 

Not bad, but not great, right?  It’s been enough to get by, but it just didn’t make sense.  You could totally tell that I just stuck an extra coffee table in the entryway and called it a day. Sadly, the entryway wasn’t high on my priority list when we moved in.  In retrospect, I definitely should have prioritized that differently.  The entryway/foyer is the first impression of your home!  It should really be the introduction for your guests.  It should be welcoming and encourage guests to come in and make themselves at home!  I think I’ve accomplished that now!!

Entryway Decor

Change #1

First things, first.  The rug!  We HAD to add one!  Rugs bring such texture and warmth to a space!  Not to mention a break for those barkin’ dogs, lol.  But seriously.  You can get so creative with rugs and truly let your personality show. This rug (the Jodi Geometric Handmade Flatweave Cotton Gray Area Rug) is absolutely stunning and PERFECTLY fits both the space and our style. I love the fringe detail on the ends as well as the darker weave pattern that perfectly compliments the light greige tone of the rug!  The other thing I really love about it, and this is HUGE….is lays completely flat!! Yes! I can’t stand rugs that curl up at the ends.  Y’all know what I mean.

Foyer Decor

Change #2

Second. The table.  I had to get a new one.  Something that made sense for the space.  Storage was preferable (for function), and of course it had to be pretty, because, duh…and lastly, I wanted it to fit nicely into my decor without being too matchy.

Entryway Decor

What do we think?? I COULD NOT believe how affordable this table was!  And it even looks better in person!  I know I’ve mentioned affordability a few times but that it one of the things that is HUGELY important to both me and my husband.  Yet another reason we are constantly sourcing our home decor from Wayfair.  They offer home updates for as little as $39!!!  Thirty-nine dollars, y’all.  That is INCREDIBLE!

Now, believe it or now, that pretty much wraps up the entryway refresh!  Two new pieces of decor and this space looks completely different and sooooo much more put together!

Change #3: The Kitchen

Here we have the before:

Kitchen Refresh

And here we have a little revamp!

How amazing are these counter stools?!?  Also from Wayfair, of course!  They come in different heights and different colors and are so comfy!  In fact, I’ve been sitting here in this middle one all day writing this post! 😂.  Again, no major overhaul here, just a few decor/furniture updates and voila!  Totally different space!

Now it’s your turn!!

The whole point of today’s post was simply to encourage you guys (and show you how easy and affordable it is) to do this in your own homes!!  People ask me ALL THE TIME to come decorate their houses, and as much as I’ve love to come and help each and every one of you, I literally can’t 😂😂😂😂.  But YOU CAN!!  You can transform ANY space in your home and it really doesn’t take much!

Wayfair has over 10 million products you guys.  10 MILLION!!!!  I know for a fact you can find something you love that IS within your budget.  Plus, shipping is free over $35 so there’s the icing on the cake!!  Don’t wait as long as I did! Start loving your space now!

Talk soon buddies,

Yay!! It’s FINALLY finished!!! We wrapped up E’s bedroom makeover today and he couldn’t be happier with the results!!!  (See my Instagram stories for his reaction 😂).  I have to say y’all, this was one of the EASIEST projects I’ve ever done!  Probably because there was very little paint or woodworking involved, lol.  The “hardest” part was the peel and stick wallpaper I added, but even that wasn’t hard…just sticky 😂😂.   Seriously though, this project now has me motivated to knock out my daughter’s bedroom next!

The Best Goodies from the NEW FALL Hearth & Hand Line at Target

Yay!!!!  It’s finally here!!! The new Fall Hearth and Hand line officially launched at Target today!!!  There are so many beautiful items you guys!  I mean duh, would we expect anything less from Queen Joanna?!  I wouldn’t necessarily call today Christmas Morning…but it’s a close runner up!  Haha!

Seriously though, I love the warm neutrals she used with the subtle pops of traditional fall color!  I’m probably loving it so much because it’s exactly what I envisioned when I started thinking through my plans for this year’s fall decor.  That must mean me and JoJo are spirit animals.  #nootherwaytoseeit   Haha okay I’m kidding!  I swear I’m not creepy!

Affordable Spring Home Decor

Affordable Spring Refresh for Your Home {All Available at Wal-Mart!}

Wow, you guys!  Wal-Mart has SERIOUSLY stepped up their game in the Home Decor department over the last couple years.  Every season I’m more and more impressed with the fun goodies they come out with!!  So, of course they were my go-to when I started shopping around for affordable spring decor!!

If you remember, I did a Wal-Mart Holiday Round-Up a few months back.  Well, y’all loved that one so much I thought I’d do another one for Spring!!  Pluuuuusss….I may have mentioned this already, (if you follow me on Insta, you know I haven’t stopped mentioning it 😂) but I’m so sick of Winter at this point that I’m literally trying to bury myself in all things Spring!  I’m trying to will it here with ALL my might!!

So, because I’m already working on Springifying my home, (and bc tomorrow officially kicks of the start of my second favorite season) I thought I’d share some of the inspiration I’ve pulled from, and give y’all some ideas for refreshing yours!
