Rustic Beach Cottage Entryway

Welcome to our new rustic beach cottage entryway. I’ve decorated this space with lots of rustic charm and I want to share some fun decor. Along with the new I’m also re using some old decor that came from our previous home.

Let me start with this awesome scroll sign.

What is it about word art or word signs that make a space feel so cozy? Is it just me that feels this way?  I’m guessing if you’re not into a modern farmhouse or farmhouse style you probably could care less about word decor or wall sayings.

To me it personalizes a space and makes it feel like home.  Anyone can buy pretty decor and hang random pictures, but I like to decorate with items that say a little something about us and our story.

When I found this sign online I knew I had to have it for our rustic beach cottage entryway.

I don’t share a lot about my faith, or about my family, but they are the reason behind everything I do.  I try to keep this little blog about furniture flipping and home decor updates, but every now and then I like to share a little bit about me.  In a nutshell, I believe I’m just a sinner saved by grace living by faith in this crazy world. 

Sometimes life can be more than we want to handle, but that’s why the good Lord sent his son to earth to die on the cross to save us from our sins.  I realize every day is a gift and we are here for a higher purpose; and yes I believe that every one of us has a purpose. 

I try to find my purpose by following His will, whether that means sharing the love of Christ through staying at home with my babies or sharing it here with you! Whew, I did not mean for this post to get so deep nor did I intend to stand on the pulpit!

All that to say I felt like this little sign by Smallwoods really sums up our values.  I decided to layer it on the front of this antique window.  I feel like the sign really personalizes the space and makes it feel more welcoming. What do you think?

I think it adds dimension to our rustic cottage entryway.

If you’ve been around here a while you might remember a little about that bench….. If not, let me show you the BEFORE picture below.

This was a $10 thrift find. Can you guess what it is? It’s an old computer hutch.  Lucky for me,  it’s SUPER sturdy, so I knew I could use it as a bench. You can see more about this makeover and our modern farmhouse entryway from our previous home here.

Once I placed the bench, the old vintage window and the scroll, I felt like this space was almost complete. A little greenery and it’s almost done!

That’s it for our entryway for now. It’s had a little DIY sharpie shiplap makeover since then.

    We share the same faith and it is good to let people know where you stand. I can do nothing without Christ in my life and I wonder how those that don’t have Him get through! Your sign is precious and looks wonderful in that corner. It is a great blend of all my favorite styles.
