How to Update an Entryway ~Room Reveal

Sponsored Post DisclosureEntryway Makeover Mudroom Hall Tree madeinaday.comIt’s a new year and it’s time to refresh with new beginnings! My first inspiration this year is to declutter and improve my ten-year-old house so I can fall in love with it again. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t love my home, I just feel like the honeymoon is over.

Do you remember what it was like when you first moved into your new home? You’re excited, maybe overwhelmed, but you have all these ideas and inspirations for what you want it to look like. It’s exciting picking out just the right piece of furniture or paint. Then after painting all the rooms and slowly furnishing each one, by the time you get everything like you want it, a fresh new trend will come along and make you feel you need to start over. Well I’m almost ten years in and I’m starting to feel this way.

Back in December the great team over at Kohl’s asked me if I would be interested joining in on their Spring Home Refresh January Sale. I knew this is just what I needed to get in gear to start my home makeover!

Messy entryway beforeI chose to refresh my entryway and let me explain why. We rescued a new puppy that is a big fan of chewing up shoes. We were using a cute tray to throw our shoes by the door before the fuzzy culprit moved in. When she arrived I had to move the tray to the top of a chest I had in my dining room. Not cute.

So looking through the Kohl’s Home Department there were so many amazing items for the home to choose from. Way more items than you will find in the store.

Crosley Furniture Entryway BenchAfter days of trying to decide and figure out just the right piece, I chose the  Crosley Furniture Entryway Bench.

hot to put together a hall treeI have always wanted to install built-in’s for a mud room and I actually have room to build one, but that space is now occupied by a huge dog kennel. This super cute Hall Tree gave me the mudroom I always wanted plus it filled a empty spot in my dining room. I’d rather have this in my dining room than a dog kennel.

The bench part has a top that lifts up to store your shoes!! Problem solved! Let me tell you, I am so in love with this piece, I can not stop looking at it!! Don’t you just love when just the right design or furniture fits a room perfectly? Well this hall tree does just that!

 Kohl’s wants you to experience their amazing Home Department too!

  1. I’d probably get a beautiful comforter for my bed. We’re using one right now made for a double bed & ours is a queen. Then I would get myself a few tops, it’s been a long time since I’ve bought any clothes for myself.

  2. I would by some dishes because I am down to 4 plates and one has a chip in it. These were wedding a wedding gift over 25 years ago. I still have all the bowls, cups, saucers, and dessert plates from an 8 piece set but not enough plates.

  3. A showerhead that filters out hard water! I have a bad reaction to hard water and it doesn’t help when you have psoriasis.

  4. I would buy items to update my bathroom which really needs a Spring Re-do. Something bright and cheery to overcome my morning blah’s. (I have to set two alarms to get up)

  5. I would love to buy a brand new bedding set – sheets, duvet, pillows, the works!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. If I won, I would buy me some workout clothes. My New Year’s resolution, was to lose some weight, and I am exercising now, so I definitely need some workout clothes.

  7. I’d like to buy some curtains for our living room that aren’t sheer. The entryway really looks great I love the brass umbrella stand and the gold accents really make things pop.

  8. Oh I would love to get the Trademark Fine Art ”Blue Hour for a Blue Ocean” 5-piece Canvas Wall Art Set! That is so beautiful and we need a picture above our sofa! So pretty!

  9. I love Kohl’s and I’ve noticed recently how much adorable home decor they have! It sure would be hard to choose. Your entry way looks great–love all of the geometric shapes!

  10. I’m redecorating my apartment so I would either get a new coffee table for the living room or a cute little breakfast table and chairs.

  11. This would be so fantastic for a gift to my daughter and her children! Thank you sooo much! 8 people living in a 2 + add on room & 1 bathroom trailer this win would be great!

  12. I would spruce up my bathroom. I would buy a new shower curtain, new rug, maybe some new paint, and some new towels especially a bath towel.

  13. I would buy some lamps for the house. We have only a few wired lights in the house and it is always dark in here. I really need to brighten things up.

  14. Love your hexagons! And the bench – I’m always wishing there was a more convenient place to put shoes on than on the couch (though it is rather close). I have one pair of shoes that absolutely must be untied before I can put them on again (though, really, I should do that to all shoes, but meh!) and having a place right inside for that would be awesome!
    If I got the Kohl’s card, oh man. I would probably have to buy some lights. Our apartment is great, but lacking in brightness – we need some floor lamps!

    1. Thanks so much Jessica! I love it so much! So tired of looking at that nasty shoe pile. This piece of furniture did the trick! Thanks for stopping by! Good Luck!
