This is what our front hall looked like before we moved in.
And now, after many coats of paint (and some furniture), it now looks like this
I moved a table that we had in the living room into the space next to the door. We have baskets on it that store the dogs toys and leashes and on top we have a place to throw our keys when we come home.
We got a really cute rug from Target as well as a basket which I will tell you more about next week.
Here's another before shot before we painted.
This is our shoe storage unit we picked up at a consignment store. We got this one and the one in our dinning room for a really great price. It holds pretty much all of our shoes (when we actually put them away that is) and I love how we can look at this really pretty piece instead of a mess of shoes.
We topped the shoe storage with a couple of lamps to brighten up the hall and some of our favorite photos.
We still have a few more things to do in this space, but the painting was definitely the biggest and most time consuming job. We are really liking the gray because it just gives a touch of color and in certain light it just looks like a shadow!
