Let’s see the boring before pictures first!
But before we jump into the pretty pictures of the finished farmhouse foyer area, let’s take a walk down memory lane and remember what this space looked like just 4 weeks ago!
It was quite literally nothing. Just a boring corner of our living room. To be honest, it was one of those corners that usually just accumulated “stuff” too. You know what I mean…the boxes, the donation piles, the jackets thrown about. It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t functional.
But I knew that even with a small budget (we DIYed almost everything here) and a small space, we could do something better. I mean, anything had to be better than what we were living with.
If you’re wondering why there is a random jut out in the wall of drywall, it is where the exterior of the house turns to the garage. Not a great design, I know. But this living room was originally a garage (we think), so I guess it makes sense. If you’re interested in seeing more about our renovation plans and what the house looked like when we moved in, check out this post.
Even though that jut out is kind of weird, I knew I couldn’t get rid of it. So I tried to incorporate it into this entryway design so that it looks and feels natural and intentional.
After we cleared the space, I started quite literally pouring over tons of small foyer ideas. I even rounded up a bunch of the fun small entryway ideas I found here.
Modern Farmhouse Entryway After Pictures
Here’s what it looks like now:
Here’s what I knew we needed in this farmhouse foyer design:
- Make the random jut out of drywall look natural
- Place to hang keys (they were always getting lost) – preferably where the kids can’t reach because #toddlers
- Hooks for jackets & hats
- Shoe storage
- Bench to take shoes on and off
- Cute entryway decor
One of the first DIYs we tackled in this entryway makeover was a solution to our key issue.
I’m pretty obsessed with how the DIY key holder turned out. The touch of leather on the frame was the perfect last minute addition that adds some warmth to the modern farmhouse entryway.
Wood bench & shoe storage
The next thing we did was build this easy DIY bench! It was SO fun to build and I think it is just perfect for the space. We specifically built it so that a rolling box would fit underneath for shoe storage.
But that box was not my style when I bought it, so I gave it a fun makeover with just paint. I love the visual interest that the mud cloth pattern adds to the entryway decor.
Entryway coat rack
We also built the white shelves with coat hooks. We followed my good friend, Amanda’s, tutorial that you can find here.
The only thing we changed from her tutorial was the size (we used 10 inch wood on the back panel of the small shelf one). We also didn’t include the bottom trim piece, which if you read her tutorial, she mentioned that she probably would not use this piece if she were to build it again – so we took her advice.
They are super easy to build and adorable, right?
Farmhouse entryway decor
This cute faux fiddle leaf fig may just be one of my favorite additions to my house recently! I can’t believe the price! It’s so inexpensive, but looks SO real.
At the last minute I added that faux leather pillow to the bench and it was the perfect extra touch, don’t you think?
Remember, we were only working with a small little 3 foot corner of our living room so we didn’t have much space for additional decor.
However, If you had more space in your entryway you could add something more built-in (like these mudroom lockers), more farmhouse style throw pillows, or even add cute farmhouse wreath DIY hanging from one of the coat hooks. I think something like a shiplap sign or a sponge wall would be so fun in a modern farmhouse entryway like this.

I love this! I recently moved into a rental house with the same tiny “entryway”/living room situation and I’ve been looking for a budget friendly solution to fake an entryway and this is perfect, especially the diy bench. I love that ya’ll share diy projects that are simple and practical for those trying to keep it cheap, but are still actually high quality and not cheesy or tacky. Your before and afters are super inspirational and I looooove your style! Thanks for sharing!
Aw, thanks for your sweet comment! We love to share everything from easy and simple DIY projects to big and complex renovations….and everything in between! 🙂 Thanks for following along.
Just watched your bench video. It is done very well. The camera does a good job of showing how you are doing the work. I liked that you fast forwarded, but still showed the work. I like the way you explained how you were doing and included detailed information. It was informative and enjoyable to watch! Thanks!
So glad you enjoyed the video! 🙂 thanks for your comment.
