Throwback Thursday - Summer Entryway 2013

It's time again for me to come up with a summer decor idea for 
my entryway.
I have an idea of what I want to do 
have even started working on it.
But, since it's Throwback Thursday I thought 
I would look at last years entryway.

Vintage, Paint and more... summer chalkboard, flip flop wreath, fun colors of summer, using flip flops in your decor

Last year I used some really bright, hot colors 
reminisent of the beach 
beach life here.

My wreath was actually made from 
dollar store flip flops 
lots of summer embellishements.
I loved it but sio did my DIL so, it found a new home in the fall....

Vintage, Paint and more... summer fonts for chalkboard, chalkboard painted mirror, vintage mirror turned into chalkboard

Our chalkboard depicted all the things 
that we love about summer.
My granddaughter Mimi made it 
so fun and colorful....

The bench held a beach bag, towel and flip flops- 
things that we use daily ...
They were in the same fun colors
already used throughout.
This was one look our entryway sported
I must say I loved the bright whimsical feel it gave as you enterd our home.
The second look was a patriotic one.
With all things red, white and blue.

While Iwas ok with this look 
it just wasn't one of my best efforts.
I think it needed some pizzaz....
This year I am looking to change it up quite a bit.
I am thinking I am going to use the 
beautiful, calming coastal blues and whites 
see just which one I like the best.
