When we moved into our wonderful apartment the entryway had potential to be a great landing strip, but obviously lacked a purpose. Here is the before picture:
Not much to be said. BUT! After convincing my sweet husband to help me paint horizontal stripes, some coat hangers, and some accessories we had a functional entryway!
Here are the deets:
coat hooks by The Hook Lady
rug on loan from the momma
umbrella stand and small table from The Sleepy Poet
lamp base from Marshalls
faux-leather black lampshade from Potterybarn Outlet
mirror, a wedding gift from Potterybarn
Eventually I want to paint the 40$ table another color...what do you think? Something to warm up the space. At first I wanted to do it a coral color, now it is just another project on hold.
For all those who are thinking about horizontal stripes...you can do it! It just takes patience, time and a good tutorial, which I did not have. All in it took both me and Nate about 5 to 6 hours to measure, tape and paint the stripes. Make sure you have a level, a long straight edge, plenty of tape, and a ruler. A T-square can be very helpful, but you have to make sure your walls are all straight. Ours were not, which we learned very quickly!
