Well hello there! I’m so excited to show you our entryway today! Even though we’d been doing the exterior project, I couldn’t really do anything but watch so I took on a quick for-now makeover of the entryway. *This post contains affiliate links.
To fully appreciate what it looks like now, here’s what it looked like the day we moved in.
For a little while we had the green door (SW Fresh Balsam) and while I loved it, from the outside it was too dark for the shaded house.
The tile isn’t what I want but I’m not interested in gutting it yet. It sounds too tiring, dusty and expensive so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try painting it.
First I scrubbed the floor really well. There’s a super helpful tip at the bottom that I would use here. Make sure and keep reading. I primed it with this Kilz Adhesion Primer.
Most of it is protected by the rug which makes me feel better about it being long lasting.
Plus it’s a pretty busy pattern with lots of contrast so I like that it’s covered up a bit.
