{ DIY Farmhouse Style Back Entryway Makeover for FREE! }

It's 2am & I'm trying to get this post out for you guys because I leave for my girls trip to Kennebunkport Maine in 24hrs! I still have a lot to finish & of course my OCD self has to have everything in order before I leave. I've said this a million times before,but I ALWAYS seem to take on projects right before vacation..just like this time HERE. Anyways a few days ago when I was still feeling gross from that virus I contracted I stepped outside for a few minutes & cleaned this little buffet Mark had found the week before! I had been wanting to add something a bit bigger to our back entryway, but it is small! When he spotted this junkin treasure I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it..add it to our back door/ patio entry! I hate having shoes, keys, & everything else laying around in the dining room, so this was the perfect solution..& the inside is huge for his work boots, sunscreens, sunglasses & million of keys! This little piece only took about 2 coats of black chalk paint & some washing & it was complete..win win in my book! Come see the rest below!


So in true "Paige" fashion I forgot to take before pics..I had this one from when I sent to my mom & well it needed some paint ha! Like I said above I just scrubbed it clean & painted the top & bottom trim black with black chalk paint from @target!


I love how large the inside bottom cabinet is & it does have a shelf for double level it need be..The more storage the bigger until we move right?!




It fit perfect in the space & it's a charming little piece all for FREE! I mean who can beat that right?



Both galvanized pieces are from @target! The wall organizer holds leashes, change etc.. & the tray holds everything we drop on it haha! I should mention I also wasn't to worried about the height, because we have a coat rack/ drop zone on the stairs right across from this area as you walk in the back door! 

**See what this space looked like before HERE


What do you guys think about this free little DIY makeover for our back entry? Do you have a "drop zone" in your home? Leave me any storage ideas below..more the better ha!
