With a little work, a lot of effort and some smart DIY skills, designer Sarah Dorsey completely transformed her new home’s entryway into a light and bright space. Keep reading for her full entryway makeover!
What was once a cramped, awkward room is now a wonderful welcome into a beautiful home. Take a look at her entryway makeover and before and after photos, below.
Before: Clunky wooden beams on the walls and ceiling made the room feel much smaller than it actually is.
After: As a lover of natural wood grain, Dorsey was torn about whether or not to paint the space. But after some debate, she ended up painting all of the wood beams white, and didn’t look back.
Dorsey tore up the old tile and put in a new herringbone gray marble tile to elevate the room’s feel. We love the custom built-ins at the end of the room too! Perfect for storage, and our Wire Cubby Baskets help keep often-used items tidy.
Dorsey put her DIY skills to the test and put together a gallery wall of her own art, along with our Metal Silver Letters.
A DIY coat rack and our Collapsible Baskets provide an easy place to drop off coats, bags and umbrellas as soon as people walk in the door.
Dorsey’s DIY mirror (Amazing, right?) sits over a handy wall shelf with our Eleana Recycled Bud Vases for a last minute freshen-up before heading out.
