So after I got my new rug I decided that my entry way needed a little re-vamp.
Disclaimer: (The sconces look odd in this picture, they really do look a lot better with the space when looked at straight on...hmm... or maybe they just don't)
I lacquered the chest of drawers black, it was black before but was dull and had sanded edges.
My inspiration was this stack of old books from the thrift store, I love the color combo together and thought it would be fresh and different for me. These colors are a little (or a lot) out of my decorating comfort zone:)
I framed a piece of my favorite fabric from Calico Corners, I love the interest it gives the space.
Fresh flowers for a bit of luxury:) in my $3 Ross bowl. And a photograph of Will's baby feet that my mom took.
I also stole a mirror from my bedroom and a bird I previously had on the table to complete the look.
My boys and their friends need a place to sit while they put their shoes on and this little ottoman is the perfect spot. I painted it a Rustoleum high gloss blue, had Trevor cut a wood circle and then covered it with two layers of batting and Premier Prints black and white "chipper". Its kind of fun and definitely a statement piece. (I'm thinking I might add a couple of gold frames stacked on the wall above the ottoman)
Here is the entry way before:
A change is good every now and then:)
