Well, folks - the good news, classes are OVER! It's official - I'm done and looking forward to graduation. This past weekend was my first in ages without homework, writing, or planning my schedule for the week ahead. So, what's a girl to do?
PINTEREST! Yes, it is my latest addiction. If you haven't checked it out, go now! It's full of decorating ideas, recipes, style, and inspiration. One area of our house that has always annoyed me - the entryway. I've never felt like we utilized the space as well as we could. Basically, you walk in our front door and there is a small alcove - approximately 6 ft wide and 1.5 ft deep. I had pinned lots of ideas on my "Entryway" board, but this one and this one were by far my favorites.
We've been working on bits and pieces of this project for the past three weeks as time allowed, but we finally brought it all together this weekend. I really wish I had a before picture, but for a moment close your eyes and envision a wall with a mirror and chair rail and that's it! :) And NOW....
I'd like to give a SHOUT OUT to my friends Angie & Sally who helped me think outside the box into repurposing existing pieces of furniture; my husband for his patience :) ; and my neighbor for his carpentry skills.
What do you think?
