{end of} summer entryway refresh

So, it took me all summer to do it, but we finally have a new seasonal look for our mudroom. Can you call an entryway a mudroom when it is not mud season? I had been tiring of the mood of this space; it seemed so out of place during the bright, sunny days of summer and I was just itching to make a few tweaks to freshen it up.

If you need a reminder, below is the original room. Very autumn feeling.

And the summer look again.

The coral art didn't cost a thing—I just printed these on regular copy paper from Vintage Printable. The new basket was free too—I borrowed it from another room to hold flip flops here. The bag was on clearance from Target for under $3 (that price?!!) and holds all my gardening tools and things. And of course, everyone needs a beach towel ready to go by the door (now pretty much used just as a groundcover for baby to play on in the backyard). And the starfish had long been in storage in my accessory closet. Do you all have an accessory stash somewhere in your home? It's so handy when you tire of your accessories and want to make a quick switch.

And so now that I've got this room feeling all summery, I can't believe it's already time to change it back to its fall look. Ah, summer. Can you stay a little bit longer?!

I first saw this on pinterest and love it! Your mudroom/entry has always impressed me with great style in such a small space. VP is the best for free art!
