Slowly but surely we are working on making this house our own. I'm starting in the "easiest" places so that I can feel that I have actually accomplished something and that meant the foyer.
I'll do the before/after together so you can see the difference.
This is the foyer before we had the floors refinished. The extra wood is for the living room that was carpeted.
The stair treads did not match the floors.
This is after the floors were done but before we painted the walls, ceiling, trim and stair posts.
And the finished wall. The walls are Sherwin Williams Agua Fria and the accent wall is Restoration Hardware Rouge. We painted the stair railings and bullnosing in Polyshades Black. We will eventually get a table that is more scaled to the accent wall and move the current table somewhere else.
The stairway after tread refinishing but prior to painting.
After...Bella was curious about the picture-taking:
Before view into dining room:
Front entry before:
The girls' front closet.
Len's and mine is a bit more crowded...but organized thanks to Nana's help!
And that's a wrap on the front entryway. As I finish rooms, I'll post before and after pics. Who knows, this may turn into a design blog for a bit. Got to put my degree to good use...
