DIY Framed Hooks : Uncommon Slice of Suburbia Just add paint, frames and some vintage looking hooks to make that blank wall space in your entry way shabby chic. Key hooks, get large old keys as decoration/keyrings.
add wood wallpaper to the kick plates of the stairs. Those rolls are expensive but you would only need one. Not practical with white treads though, it will be stuffed up from black shoe soles in no time.
