Entryway Makeover

Some redecorating jobs bring almost-instant gratification. Others...

The entryway to our apartment has to pack a big job into a small space. It has two doorways, a closet and a stairway as soon as you walk in. An awkward space to work with, to say the least.

If your entrance is your home's receptionist, ours had the personality of a disaffected temp.

But a bit of paint, a whole lot of time and some rethinking of the door situation and now it says "Hello and Welcome".

The stairs are on the list for winter. But I have big plans, so...

Love that checkerboard floor. I have always wanted one.
