Functional and Stylish Entryway Makeover on a Budget: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

Today I am excited to partner with Better Homes & Gardens once again!  As a BHG Stylemaker, I am honored to work with this amazing brand sharing their stylish and affordable line of home products from Walmart! As always, any product reviews or opinions are honest feedback from my personal experience.  This post contains affiliate links to Walmart, which means the brand rewards me with a small commission for any sale resulting from a link click through on my blog! Thanks so much for your continued support!

I don't know about you, but I always love a good before and after, especially when the after look was completed on a tight budget of under $300! Take a look at this fun entryway makeover I recently completed. 

The before...a clean slate to work with.  We needed to dress it up while keeping it functional.

Since this area is the first space you see when you walk in the front door, I wanted to keep it simple and clean but I also wanted it to feel warm and welcoming.  I cam across this awesome hall tree from the Better Homes and Gardens line at Walmart and knew it was the perfect piece for this space!  I love the mixed materials of weathered wood and metal. 

Added storage is always nice but with this piece there is no sacrificing style for functionality, it gives you both!

In order to cozy up the entry and define the space in this open area, I added this beautiful geometric, shag rug from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart.  I love the texture it adds to the area and the light color brightens up the space.  It was so inexpensive and the quality is great!

To add some interest, I used a f
ew throw pillows, a few lanterns and a potted plant.  Simple touches made a huge impact and gave it a finished look!  All items were very affordable!

I absolutely love the faux leather throw pillow.  It adds in a new texture and pairs well with the industrial look.  The soft, Sherpa throw pillow keeps things cozy and warm!  I always have the best luck finding inexpensive, but stylish, throw pillows from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart!

To add a little ambiance to the space, I used two large candle lanterns from the Better Homes & Gardens line.  Although we wanted the space to give a sleek, modern feel, the candles make it feel warm and welcoming when you walk in.  To add another soft glow, I added an industrial rope light I already owned.  All pieces are very simple in design and the metal ties in well with the hall tree!

For functionality, I used a wood crate, from the Better Homes & Gardens line, paired with a vintage locker basket.  These are great for storage and keep things looking tidy!

With a budget of under $300, this entryway is complete!  If you have an area that needs a fresh, new look, I highly recommend shopping the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart.  They have so many affordable, high quality options that fit any style!  I love that you can shop online and have everything delivered to your door!
