Simple Farmhouse Entry

I have a whole Pinterest board of lovely farmhouse entryways, and I hope to someday have space for hooks, bins, benches, and everything else that makes for a beautiful and functional entryway. But for now we just have this small space to work with, so we’ve kept it simple, practical, and added a touch of farmhouse charm.

Sweet antiques, lace, polka dots, pops of yellow, and this super adorable welcome mat makes this tiny farmhouse entry space feel sweet and welcoming.

I searched forever for a milk can at a reasonable price because I thought it would make the perfect umbrella stand.

Things I absolutely love about this space:
☆ The adorable hello doormat
☆ The milk can turned umbrella stand
☆ The waves and cracks in this old plaster wall
☆ The old painted door
☆ The yellow rain boots I bought to wear on my wedding day in case it rained (I now wear them when working outside!)

☆ The polka dot curtains with lace tie backs that my grandma helped me make when we first moved into the house
☆ This sweet little rug beater I couldn’t help but fall in love with at a flea market

Things we’ll be changing in the future:
☆ That crooked lightswitch—we can’t even figure out what it goes to!
☆ The stick on tile floor
☆ The thin door trim that doesn’t match the rest of the house

But for now, I’m so happy with this simple little space. A place to say hello to the world when I leave for the day and a place to welcome me home when I return.

      Thanks, Tania! Those rain boots will always remind me of my wedding because I lugged them halfway across the country when we eloped juuuuust in case in happened to rain on the morning we got married :)

      Thanks, Debra! I agree that yellow is such a fun and welcoming color. I hope to add more yellow and some aqua to our home because those colors make for such a cheerful space!

    Meg, those rain boots are absolutely adorable. This is so much more than just a simple farmhouse entry. It has loads of fun and whimsy. The yellow accents make it so bright and airy and I wish I could find something like that to store my umbrellas in. The quest is never over! Thanks for the sweet inspiration. Pinning and sharing.

    Meg, I just love your entryway!! It’s so welcoming. The milk can, the welcome mat and those memory filled yellow boots make for an inviting space.

    You said you searched forever for that milk can. Where did you find it? I’ve been looking for good deals on things like this for my Arkansas farmhouse. =-) Thank you! So cute!!!

      I managed to find this milkcan at an antique store for $20. Quite a deal considering I usually see them at $30-60! It was already painted black & I loved the look!
