I really don't have an "entry hall." I have a little space by the front door...then you either go up the stairs or step into the living room. But it is enough space that it should have an "identity." A little character...maybe a little "flair."
It has N.O.T.H.I.N.G.
I did replace the terribly boring builder-grade steel front door years ago. It leaked air and was just plain ugly. So I splurged on this really awesome "mission style" door with pretty glass. I like it for several reasons. It's pretty. It doesn't leak air. And I can look out the window when someone is at the front door.
And of course I painted my interior doors black. Seriously, it makes a difference...try it!
I took the light fixture down months ago. I didn't like it and I was certain I could find a replacement. Nope. Haven't found one yet. I actually have several I bought sitting in the entry closet...but they just aren't what I want and since they cost a pretty penny, I don't want to hang them. I just need to return them.
I put a mirror up on the wall for a time. I didn't like it. I took it down.
It is just one of those spaces I wish I could wave a magic wand and it would look like something from Pinterest.
But that doesn't happen in the real world. In the real world you have to have a vision and be creative. I have no vision for this space.
When I switched out my exterior lights (featured here), I had this half-way decent light fixture. Ugly, but might have a little potential.
So after kicking this thing around the garage for the last few weeks, I decided to give it the ole' black spray paint treatment.
And honestly, it's not that bad....
I still need to wave my magic wand and do something awesome on the wall...and maybe an ultra cool rug. And the light is, well.... it will do for now. Maybe I will find something I like better...in another 10 or 15 years. Until then, this one will do and it didn't cost me a dime (okay, maybe a dollar's worth of paint)
