Spring foyer reveal {before & after}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

A couple days ago I spruced up our foyer and added a few little things to make it springy, bright and cheery. This is the foyer right off of our driveway so it’s the first thing you see as you enter the house. I painted the chest (old toy box) white,  different pillows on the couch ,  some new drapes (well old but new for this space) and  added some flowers.

I bought a bath mat for $6 at Marshals and recovered a lampshade on the light. One of these days, I will try tiling. I’m not a fan of the carpet but for now, a bath mat will do! 🙂

I put a quick coat of white paint on the chest and would you believe me if I told you that I recovered the lamp shade with my gram’s night gown?She passed away last summer and my mom still hasn’t gone through all her clothes and she had some really cool looking things so I asked her if I could use the night gown for the shade. She was so happy to see it finished 🙂

Sorry the sun is beaming in these pictures but it has rained here for days and yesterday was finally sunny in the afternoon so I quickly took some pictures before it rained again.

How about you, have you done any spring decorating? Tell me what you have done!

PS . I’ll be adding this post to my pinterest “Spring into the Dream” board . Have you added your board yet? If not, you still can. Just follow this link .
