Foyer Update

It’s amazing what some paint will do to a room. We have this sandy off-white paint on every wall in our house. I think the bank that owned the house paid a very sloppy contractor to come in and paint over everything. The off-white color isn’t even a pretty egg-shell color. It almost looks like they used an old can of white paint and didn’t mix it all the way. It looks yellow next to the white trim. Sometimes I swear I can see inconsistencies on the walls. Here’s what the foyer looked:

I also could not stand the color of the wood on this door. So everything in the foyer got a nice facelift! I LOVE dark wood stains. So I used the same wood stain, Kona, from our Half Bath Reno.

Taping all of those windows was really annoying but it made cleaning the glass a lot easier! I’m thinking about doing a mercury glass effect on them. The contractor that installed them got glue ALL OVER the glass and I can’t get it off!

Here’s the new look!

The stair rail got an update too! Check out the details here.

I found the most perfect little table to go under the mirror also. Check out the details on the mid century side table up cycle here.
