Front Entrance - Before

We have the tiniest front entrance... with 3 doors!

It is only 1.3 m deep by 1.45m (or about 4.5ft by about the same). It is the front door entrance, then has a door to the hallway and a door to the living room. This photo with the door open was taken from the hallway and the living room door (not shown) is on the right.

This photo with the door closed shows all 3 doors and just how small the space is.

At least having this space means that the project is contained within a small area...!

You can see the wallpaper curling where it meets
Gotta look on the bright side somehow, right?

When we purchased this house in Nov 2016, the front entrance had nothing going for it...

Peeling wallpaper that was painted - you can see the line between the two pieces of wallpaper!
Floor covered in thick vinyl tiles
Awful ceiling light
I knew I wanted an entrance with more functionality. I think we'll keep the 2 doors (into the hall and into the living room) since it helps contain the mess.

Because it's such a small space, I also knew I had the ability to be a bit bold.

I'm excited to show you what I accomplished!
