I’m pretty sure I’ve never shown you my front entryway. Why? Well, that’s because it’s always been a bit of an eye sore. What’s even more embarrassing is that it’s the entrance that everyone uses when visiting my little shop.

It’s a pretty tight space, so I apologize in advance for the weird camera angles. I tried to get the best shots I could. (I even stood on the porch in the snow for a few.) This space is also somewhat dark since my front door is mostly solid with only a small window at the top. A new front door has been on my wish list for quite some time, but that’s another story.

As I’m sure you can agree, this space needs to be enlivened with a splash of color! The walls are already painted a great neutral gray that I love. I just needed some really unique accessories.


Inspired By Charm


So, I hopped in my car and headed to Target. They recently released their new home decor line, Threshold. It’s fabulous – budget-friendly, high style, bold colors, and tons of options.

Not surprisingly, I was greeted with aisle after aisle of really beautiful, high-quality products. I could have spent hours checking it all out. Talk about color! My mind immediately went to work on what I could use for my space. I thought about a couple possibilities, including those big rattan baskets, but ultimately I fell head over heals for this unique bench with its colorful woven top. It would be the perfect size, and since it was the last one on the shelf, I knew it was meant to be. I grabbed a few other coordinating accessories, loaded up my cart, checked out, and headed home. 


While the Threshold line has several different color stories and themes, they still work very nicely together. Whether your taste is simple and neutral or bold and eclectic, there’s a combination for you. 


Now, get ready, this is going to be a quick, yet beautiful makeover.


I started out with my bench.

Perfect fit!

After that I hung up my artwork

Remember, I put these together last week with just a couple pieces of fabric. (See the full tutorial here.) They look pretty paired up with the bench, right?

Then I added this great hammered tray, topped up with a pair of blue vases and an incredible yarn-wrapped gazelle bust. I think I love it the most.

A bright turquoise basket underneath for some magazine storage adds a pop of fun color.

I’m so glad I decided on that little bench. I’m crazy about it. I’m also a big fan of all of the color I was able to incorporate. It’s now a fun and happy little entry.

Remember where I started?

Totaling everything up, I spent just over $200 to give this tiny foyer some new life and color.

Below are links for all the items I used to create this updated entryway.

1. Beveled Mirrored Glass Frame // 2. Turquoise Wicker Basket  // 3. Silver Serving Tray  

 4. Woven Accent Bench // 5. Small Blue Glass Vase // 6. Medium Blue Glass Vase  // 7. Yarn Wrapped Gazelle



If you haven’t had a chance, swing by your local Target and check out the new Threshold line. They have some many great, classics pieces. Even by adding one or two fun accessories, you could completely change the look of your own entryway.

    Just gorgeous, Michael! You did an amazing job with a small space, it has such personality now!

    My motto whenever I am at Target or T.J. Maxx, Marshall’s, etc. If you see something and like it but may not be 100% sure of the color, if it will fit your space, etc., BUY IT ANYHOW! You can always take it back. If you get it home and it doesn’t work, return it to the store. A friend of mine argued that this may mean an extra trip to the store, and I said, well, if you get home and regret not getting it and go back for it, it’s an extra trip to the store anyhow, and the thing may be gone by then!

    Hi..The bench is just fabulous – great find! And you have accessorized the area to perfection! I also noticed that you have a ton of “anonymous spam comments” – I have also been hit with them in the past week (some people have nothing better to do, I guess!) I always enjoy visiting here!
