The Foyer

Lets start this house tour with the foyer.  It only seems right since it is what you see when stepping in our front door.  And let me also say that it was really hard getting photos of this space…like really hard.  So the photos suck, just saying.


There is a small wall that you look at just as you enter the door.  I did a navy and white chevron pattern on the wall.  Some say chevron is done and I have to agree that it is EVERYWHERE but I love my little wall.


My Mom gave me the antique dresser.  I painted it SW Lucky.  I kinda of love it.  It’s fun and I love the color against the navy and white.


The mirror is from Hobby Lobby.  I used antique gold Rub n’ Buff on it.  It was a pain in the you know what to paint but it was worth it.



The lamp, milk glass, brass bowl and picture frame were all thrift finds.  The polar bear was a HomeGoods find a few years ago.


The bench I found at an estate sale.  It was nasty.  I reupholstered the seat and made it pretty again.  The vintage owl umbrella stand was a Craigslist score.  I never have good luck with Craigslist, but this was an exception.

There is one overhead light in the foyer and lets just say that it is bad.  I haven’t decided what would look awesome in its place so this is how it will stay until I decide.  Any suggestions?


I also need a rug.  I can’t decide on that either.  Should I get a small rug for just in front of the door or should I get a larger area rug?  I need your help!


The navy wall over there is the dining room.  It’s up next!


So that’s the foyer.  Got any rug or lighting suggestions?
