Welcome to My Home... On a Budget

Lately I have been posting home projects on my other blog, Ten23 Designs, which is my vinyl decal business blog because they involve decal decor. Today I am back with another budget makeover.

I love "sprucing up" & "thrifty makeover" projects. Yesterday, Tip Junkie posted steps on creating a welcoming front entry. I thought of this as great inspiration to get my front entry a step closer to being "inviting."
One of her step was to have plants on the porch. This one I decided to skip, even though I love potted plants. I live out in the country & bunnies nibbling on your plants is all too common around here.

So here is the budget breakdown on my front entry project:

"Welcome" vinyl decal for the front door - $5 from (Yes, my shop, I made it).

Next my mother & I ventured into Hobby Lobby for the wreath. I picked out the floral pieces for it & she put it together. I love the look.

I bought these 2 wicker chairs from a yard sale for $25 for the pair. They are from Pier 1 Imports so it was a pretty good deal. I spray painted them black ($4 spray paint).

My mother & I went to Garden Ridge during the end of summer sale & found these beautiful damask chair cushions for on $7 each. The table ($5) in the center of the 2 chairs and the awesome la fleur de lis staph ($3) was also from Garden Ridge. Both were originally brown & I also spray painted them black.
So what do you think? Do you fell welcomed?

Looks awesome. Great yard sale find! $25!
