{entryway up-do}

It has been a while since I've shown off our entryway.
And it's gotten a bit of a facelift since you saw it last.

If you recall, last year Tanner and I picked up a shoe caddy from IKEA to corral all the horrible shoes that piled up in our doorway. The new cabinet was a vast improvement, but it still lacked... a little something.

We decided what we didn't like about the shoe cabinet was that it was too plain. With simple wooden sides and no decorative embellishments, it looked less like a cabinet and more like something that goes in a garage. So, after several trips to hardware stores in search of the perfect add, we discovered these...

Handles! It adds just the right amount of chic to our plain cabinet to give it more color and style! Tanner did a wonderful job installing them, and I can't help grinning every time I see them.

To match our new entryway up-do, we decorated the wall with a photo frame of our backpacking trip and picked up some his-and-hers coat hook pegs from Anthropologie (which I love! They would also make adorable towel hooks for the bathroom!) to complete the space.

It's not perfect (I'm not a fan of the white walls... I can't wait for a house of our own...) but it looks much better than we when we moved in. The before and after:

Sitting on top of the shoe cabinet you can spot our DIY notecard calendar!
