Entry with Rustic Charm Decor

Written by Emily Buys

Rustic Charm Entry

Adding a new addition to the family calls for a little redecorating. Just one month ago my husband and I had a beautiful outdoor vintage and rustic wedding. To go along with that theme and to bring a little love and family into our home, I picked a section of wall in my entry way that needed a little TLC. Waiting a month to get some pictures of our new little family up on the wall was almost torture, but I am so happy with the end result of our entry with rustic charm decor.

Our wedding pictures turned out so great that I wanted them to be the feature of the entry wall. With some rustic charm added in with Better Homes and Gardens pieces from Walmart, the section feels welcoming and complete. 

To frame all of our beautiful photos, I picked out this 18 photo frame at Walmart. I love the expressions between the photos, the distressed look, and the fact that it holds so many photos! You see, I’m indecisive, and this way I am able to showcase tons of photos. Even better is that the frame only costs $19.96!

Rustic Photo Frames and Clock

To add in some 5×7 school photos of each of the kids, and to tie in a cream color, I purchased two Better Homes and Gardens Ocracoke 2-opening collage frames. I love how these frames look with the BHG Gardens Key Wall Clock. They could totally work with a country/rustic theme, or a beach theme. The frames can be turned either direction too. The clock in distressed white is probably my favorite piece. I think the keys and London H&H Waverly Locksmith add such a fun touch. 

Entry Table

To go underneath all of our new wall art, I was hoping to have my new hubby build a fun entry table, but we just haven’t had the time. Be expecting a tutorial for that in the near future though. Until then, I used another dark wood table I had hanging out in my family room, with not much purpose. I brought it over and adorned it with an antique brass studded box that I once picked up at a thrift store. Whilst shopping at Walmart for my wall art, I fell in love with the Better Homes and Gardens Wooden Milk Crate! For one, the studs match those on my antique box. Secondly, I can store blankets or any number of items in the crate. At just $15.88, I can find so many uses for this lovely piece. I think it definitely says rustic charm too! The last item to tie everything together is a lamp base and shade that I picked up from BHG. I am continually impressed by the lamp choices at Walmart, but I thought this simple Bronze lamp with a Fabric Drum Shade with Black Trim was just right. Love the affordable prices too!

Now I feel like our house is more of a home for all of us, because we have family photos up on the wall! Ever feel like that? I love our new entry and our bit of rustic charm.
