Quick weekend DIY home entrance makeover

by | Aug 13, 2020 | DIY, Home, Things we love | 0 comments

We’ve lived in our home for almost 6 years and a big reason for buying this house specifically was it’s potential to “fix her up”. We started out well, tackling the girl’s bedroom, the playroom and our bedroom first but… Then life happened and we kind of got a little side-tracked. I forgot about our dreams of calm and warmth but then Popstrukt sent over 3 Bubblegum Wall Hooks which inspired a quick home entrance makeover and now I’m feeling ready to tackle the entire house!

But first our home entrance…

It may sound silly, but a home entrance is actually an important space that deserves a bit of special attention. It’s after all the first “hello” and sets the mood for anyone entering.

Quick Home Makeovers Before And After

I’ll just dive in and share some photos below.

Popstrukt is a proudly South African brand that designs and manufactures the most incredible line of flatpack home decor and furniture items. Kind of like Ikea just better… (dare I say so myself). Everything is made from the highest quality steel and powder-coated to perfection resulting in a clean, classic aesthetic that compliments any home. These wall hooks are really just a small peek into their awesome range. So definitely visit their website too.

Plants are a must and I’ve been eyeing some pretty pet bowls from Benji + Moon for a while. The Eclipse bowl is my favourite. They also sell the best cat and dog collars and leashes (as seen in the background).

This little revamp didn’t even take a day, it was more like a few hours and best of all it was super cost-effective too. Plus, this is mine (and Luna’s) favourite spot to catch a bit of afternoon sun.
