I love the way it turned out. If you remember my budget for this room was $200; and I have to confess that I went a little over budget by about $50. However, I was able to reuse many of the items in this room, which really helped me stay close to budget. If you look closely, you will see that I kept the rug, one of the benches, a chair, coat rack, mirror, art, and a few other accessories.

Chalk Heart Garland (I could not help myself, I had to do a little Valentine's Day decorating)
Hearts from Micheals, painted with chalkboard paint, wired together. Idea from Pinterest.
Chalk painted hearts a + r = j & c
My hubby and my initials = our sons' initials....
I had the antique coat hooks and bench....but I need extra storage. We are a shoeless home and tripping over my kids shoes every time I walk through this room drives me crazy! So I needed a place for the kids to put their shoes. These metal baskets from TJ Maxx are perfect and each child has their own bin. (metal baskets $8 each) I also bought a vintage sap pale for $6! It is perfect for wet umbrellas.
So I have to confess I did not have time to make pillows for the bench, so I took a couple of my valentine's pillows home from Boudoir. These are going back, and they are for sale....(but they do look pretty cute here on my bench.....)
I made this little cafe curtain from a single vintage pillow case.
