something for me...
It has been arranged nicely before, but never exactly what I wanted. The little foyer is just under 6' wide so any table I found was always a hair too deep. What to do...Oh! I know. Have my hubby build a slender bench/table out of a full size headboard of course. (It is just under a foot deep...perfect)!
I got a hold of an outdated mirror and some awesomely cheery yellow paint called citrus punch and took care of that. Then after several swatches of orange paint samples, I choose one called falling leaves. I ended up doing a stain rub over the orange. Thanks to Home Goods and Marshalls for each having one of the blue pots. The fun wire baskets were also a find at Home Goods. (I'm not always at yard sales). My very cool topiaries came from Ballard Designs about 10 years ago. The picture I have is also something that has been around my house for about 10 years.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE color. (I know almost everything I paint is black...that is what sells...not what is in my house). It is so great when I take on a bright and colorful paint project. I wanted colors that made it feel like it was part of the painting I have on the wall. I also don't like a lot of "stuff". Never have. I enjoy feeling that everything is very airy and open. So, this is the end result. I am content with it. :)
*The green stripes showing up in the mirror are in my front room. My husband and I painted those several years ago. If you decide to take that project on as a couple, I hope your marriage is STRONG!! :)
