This weekend was all about yard work and starting the foyer design makeover. I started emptying out the foyer last week and finally removed the hardware this weekend. Our foyer has original stone that was added when the house was built sixty years ago. Last summer our foyer looked like this.
We removed the DIY couch, bench and cabinet that we used during the winter for boots.
Now it is empty.
I’ve already painted the white shingles a light gray color and am hoping to get the doors painted today. I am possibly going to attempt to somehow hang a shelf but the stone poses a problem. My grandfather suggested I drill a hole in the mortar which will send my dad over the edge if he sees me trying to do that. I think we will attempt it when my dad is at work.
I made another pair of burlap curtains but different from the ones I made for our family room. I was making them at 9pm last night hoping to finish both pair but I ran out of time. Hopefully I will share them with you tomorrow! We use our side foyer as our main entrance so it’s the first thing I see when I get home. I would love to rip up the carpet and lay some tile but maybe that will happen this fall. For now, I am planning to use a sisal area outdoor area rug over this rug. Our foyer design for this summer is fairly basic, just a quick spruce up using items we have around our home. Hopefully it will be finished soon!
