One guess, what’s different??
I’m pretty sure you guessed but if not I decided to stencil the curtains I hung in my foyer/entry way. The more I looked at the final picture the more I thought the space was too white and maybe the curtains looked a little too formal compared to the relaxed vibe I was going for.
It was pretty easy, I simple found a stencil I liked, which happened to be at Hobby Lobby, for go figure 40% off.
I used regular Benjamin Moore eggshell black paint and started painting a pattern. I didn’t have to be too precise since the curtains were going to be scrunched together when I was done.
Pretty easy and didn’t take too long either.
Ok this one is a bit harder, see if you can spot the difference in these photos.
I moved my black foo dog to another spot and replaced him (yes it’s a him) and put one of my favorite pieces on the sideboard, a vintage owl from my grandma that she had in her house packed away and I don’t think she ever put it out, we found it after she passed away. This little owl is one of my favorite things I have, I think of my grandma everytime I see it.
I also added a shelf to the foyer too. I’ve probably had the shelf for 3-4 years and never did anything in it, it was in my “box” of stuff.
Out comes the trusty black spray paint, a little greenery from the yard and voila!
So now I think I can say I’m done with the foyer. I was hoping to start my office next but I’ve been reminded by my husband we’re having Thanksgiving at our house and well…we don’t have a dining room table. I guess we could eat on a banquet table but this is what our table looked like last year.
So a banquet table is out of the question. We looked around yesterday and came up with a nice option from Pier One but after figuring out the cost of that and 6 chairs it was more then I wanted to spend. Tonight we’re taking a look at this table off Craiglist.
It has a leaf so the table will extend to 85″ and I think I can transform it to make it look less formal and those seats are dying for some cool fabric don’t you think! It only comes with 4 chairs so we’re thinking of getting a bench of some sort. I’ll let you know this week if we get it!
I’ve also gotten a ton of questions about materials and products used in my foyer so I’ll also give you a breakdown of that this week too! Hope you all had a fun Halloween! We did!!
