I am a self-described blog junkie. I stopped counting how many blogs I follow a long time ago, (hint… it’s A LOT) and I love them ALL! Especially this time of year, I really enjoy all of the end of the year “best of” recaps.
As a newbie blogger of just a few months I don’t have much of a “best of” projects collection yet. So, I thought I would end the year with one of my favorite room updates. The foyer has really been a work in progress since we moved into our home over a year ago. It’s a big space and we still have a few things planned, but after finding my latest thrift store treasure (a $19 Goodwill mirror) I am finally ready to give you a peek.
All of the decorative items here have been collected over time and were all in another room at some point. I was determined to use what I already had and to make the space functional. A mirror (to check your hair before you answer the door), a basket (for the kids to dump their shoes), a bench (to put shoes on and take them off) and a chest with drawers (for keys, umbrellas, gloves, etc.).
Home Goods: White oval plate, ceramic pitcher, mercury glass knobs, mercury glass vase
Ballard Designs: Pillow and lampshade
Target: Lamp base and basket
Adding bead board paneling (painted Sherwin Williams Alabaster), painting walls (Sherwin Williams Ramie), changing knobs and hinges from gold to bronze (purchased at Lowe’s)
And last but not least painting the chest. I will be doing a future post on this so stay tuned…..
So, I may not have a “best of”collection of projects this year, but I can’t wait to share all of the projects I have planned next year!
I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to stop by and check out my blog. I am so truly grateful for all of your comments, pins and “likes”. You inspire ME everyday!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and cheers to an amazing year ahead!
