{Home} Entryway

Why yes I have decorated the entryway!! And guess what? It was a goal to complete before hosting Bunco this month!  Yippee!! I am happily excited!!
Here's a before picture...see to the right? Nothing!

And here's an IG from a different angle...

And now.....

Ahem...don't mind the dust!

Cost breakdown:
Sofa table was a $25 Craiglist find! Half moon benches were 1/2 off at Garden Ridge so I paid a total of $60 for them! Rug was an purchase for $73. (Rugs are expensive! And if  you need a long one like I did then they can get very pricey!)  The two decor pieces to the right were Hobby Lobby clearance was $3 and one was $2!! Copper tray was from our wedding and the glass bell was a gift from a friend a while back.  The flower arrangement was bought at Hobby Lobby with a gift card I got from my Pastor for my birthday just this week!  And I had most of the items for the gallery wall...the Established sign I made (tutorial coming soon!), the two small subway prints were from Walmart of all places and were $3.97 each! And the key was a clearance item from Hobby Lobby  too, about $5. All the pictures I had! Just framed the 2 biggest ones of Lil' Hunkie with the cheapest frames from Walmart to keep from spending a boo coo!  
I love how this turned out and I still have room to add to it!! 
{Once again one of my very good friends and her daughter came and helped me arrange & put the gallery wall up! I don't know what I'd do without them!!}
So how did I do cost wise?  I really worked hard at trying to find good deals! I've recently added curtains to the living room too and am now done decorating it!! It really feels like a home now!
(Both boys were napping in the living room while I snapped these pictures so I couldn't take any of the new curtains! I promise to show you soon!)

Ahhhhh, home sweet home!
