So you know I’ve already refreshed my front door with a bright teal color and cleaned up my garage door entrance to the house. My entryway makeover series is about improving the entrance of my home to a place that is modern and inviting. When I got started it looked like this:
The balustrade you see to the left was revamped in November and really changed the look of my house to a more modern feel. See how I redid the stair railing here.
However, the rest of the entry stayed outdated and ugly until this past month when I got busy painting.
First, I tackled the garage door entrance. I painted both the inside and outside of the door black so you could no longer see all the dirt that accumulates there. (Look by the door handle…ew).
From inside the garage, this door now looks like this:
The next thing I did was paint all the trim white! I have had a LOT of experience painting trim white. The entryway was tedious with three doorways, but I completed the space in one week.
This is the door that enters into the garage now that everything is painted. I just love the combo of black doors and white trim.
The next thing I did was remove the closet doors. I’ve done this in our nursery and master bedroom now and enjoy it. Not having closet doors makes the room feel larger and forces me to keep more organized.

The front door was also painted the same color on the inside and outside.
It brings some brightness and color into the space.
Over-all, my entryway looks more inviting, open, and bright.
I’m so glad I took the time to complete the entryway makeover because entering my home every day has made me much happier than before.
