Entryway Ideas with Antique Decor

I discovered these antique 1800s children's chalkboards while antiquing at the Stratton Mountain, Vermont Antique Show a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't resist getting all 4!

I decided to hang them in our entryway and plan to decorate them each season with chalk art.

To start, I luv the look of the leaves for fall.

This is the first one as you walk in the door. It's so special displaying the writing of a letter to a doctor requesting his services. However, the family writing is concerned that the journey would be a large burden for the doctor...

This bureau was a DIY that I completed a few years ago. A little white paint and some house numbers for a little character and detail.

I luv decorating with dressers in all rooms, and this works so great in the winter months in hiding all the mittens, hats, scarves, etc..

Above the antique chalkboards hangs my favorite vintage find from a local online marketplace. It's an antique sign from a local Vermont Deli! And I luv the way it matches the black and white tiled flooring.

And of course, Ella needs to sneak into at least one picture...

This is her favorite spot in the house, as it's by far the coolest!

Pin It!
