As I’ve mentioned before, we live in a two bedroom ranch house that suited baby L and I perfectly until Bubba came along. Since it took forever for L. to learn to sleep through the night (and this is still under negotiations!) I didn’t want to put the new baby in with him and risk everyone being up all night long. The foyer had a pocket door that closed it off from the living room so poor baby Bubba found himself in the foyer and we found ourselves using the side door.
Well, Bubba finally got his own room yesterday and I reclaimed my foyer! With a few fall projects already underway, a huge sale at the local thrift store, and some spray paint I was able to put together a cute and welcoming fall entryway.
So here’s the BEFORE….

And here’s the AFTER….
Now I feel like I’m living in a grown up house once again! Love how this turned out!
Most everything I used for the fall table is from thrift stores. The mirror was a $4.99 find that I spray painted as were the frames on the wall. I filled them with craft paper and added chip board letters.
Check out the gold tin! And with 50% off, I paid just 99 cents!!!
Added some florist foam and shredded paper from Michael’s….
And these cute gourds were also 50% off at the grocery store this week….seems like my procrastinating paid off….
Put it all together and this was the end result…
I’m just thrilled with how all my projects turned out and the foyer just feels so warm and inviting now. I love it so much I’m going to try linking it up to the Happy Hour Party at Design, Dining, and Diapers, which is one of my favorite blogs.
So stop on by and feel free to use the front door!
