Updated Front Entrance


Now that the cold weather is here, we decided to update our front entrance to something a little more suited for the temperatures.  Before we had a fun blue and white cotton-jute blend rug that is a little too light weight for the messy months ahead and a white and yellow cane bench.

Before:

Nice, but a little too summery.
 
Empty wall in the Front Entrance.
 
I also wanted to add a table lamp and some height to the space. A table surface was the key element that was needed for the entrance. 

Awhile ago I found a console table on Kijiji which needed work but had perfect bones.

Before: A metal brown and black frame with a damaged MDF tabletop.
 
Before: A closer look at the finish.

After, a brand new look!

After: Table surface, table lamp and style!

 
After: I spray painted the metal frame a matte black and replaced the MDF with a solid raw wood slab. 
 
 
Accessorized!
 
This table lamp is warm and inviting, the opposite of our overhead ceiling fixture.
 
The empty wall, no longer!
 
Now that the front entrance is ready for the cold weather, it's time to winterize the rest of our house!
