Here was my inspiration. I love the white trim, hooks and the bench with storage.
This is how our entryway started out. It had vinyl flooring with carpet on the stairs.
First, we painted the trim and the closet door.
Then we replaced the flooring. That included placing new stair treads (I'll post more details on this later).
We also painted and re-stained the banister to match the floor.
I wanted to break up all that white, so we decided to paint the doors.
We bought these baskets to help contain gloves, scarves, hats, etc. I think they go great with this bench that I made. I then added the chalk labels to the baskets.
Here is a close up of the trim.
