welcome

As part of Kellys Korner "show us your home" link up, I am featuring my foyer!

One of the favorite places in my home.

We created this space ourselves, transforming a bare wall entryway to this friendly and bright place to come in and hang your hat.

Here is a look at the project

Here is how it looks today.

This is the view from the living room down the hall to the front door (with the door closed and door open)


CJ our cat stopped in to say hello as well !




Here is the view from the dining room with the front door open (love my wooden shoe door stop)




My mom made this mirror for us out of an old window, a recent addition to the entryway as you come in from the garage.


The color on the walls is Sea Salt by Benjamin Moore and the accents are all grey,beige and blue. I think I will eventually replace the light fixture, but for now, I am pleased with how guests are welcomed into our home!

I really like the blue and the bench. Lovely.

As you can tell, I'm slowly catching up on my SUYL reading :)
