Today I am sharing our Autumn Foyer Transformation. Our foyer has needed a little help but has not really been high on the priority list until I started seeing all the gorgeous fall decorations & room designs being posted all over ‘blogland’. So I did a quick little update & I’m happy to say, “I think it looks better”! Here is the before.
I added a quick coat of BM exterior “gray” paint to the cement

Now, as you go right inside that door ….you would have seen this a week ago

I added my dining room curtains (now the dining room windows are empty), a rug from Marshals on clearance for $35, moved the bench, added my great grandmother’s chair, accessories & mums!

Inside foyer completed

I had some fun with this last picture….I found the “sharpen” button on my photo editor … I’m sure it is not “politically correct” in the photography world but I think it’s fun! What do you think? You like? Leave me a comment below, I would love your feedback!
PS. completed barn doors for the bookcase are coming soon…..a small problem hanging them. Lets just say, my dad and I dropped them….Sad smile
