Since writing the post last week about our old door turned coat rack I realized I have never done a post about our entryway/ foyer. I think that’s because I have had the hardest time decorating it:). So many doorways, so little wall space, and a big need for storage. I still don’t think I will ever get it quite right but for now…here it is:). When we moved in the trim was painted an ugly light brown color and the closet doors were falling off their hinges. We gave the walls a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams Kestral White paint and painted the trim white. Jason fixed the closet doors and changed them from bi-fold doors to regular doors. We also changed out the brass knobs for oil rubbed bronze ones.
I just recently painted our front door black. Yes, I am still trying to minimize all the red:). We have big plans for the outside of our house in terms of changing out the trim and adding more character. I would love to find an antique wood front door with windows someday but for now I like the black much better than the red. My new 5 minute yellow spring wreath really pops on it!
That black secretary is the third piece of furniture in that spot:). We have had it for over ten years now and I love how much storage it provides. I open up the lid and put our punch bowl on it when we have big parties so guests can make themselves at home right away! I still think the secretary is a little big for that spot but I am not ready to get rid of it.
Here’s another picture of our new coat rack made from an old door. I made the sign above it to encourage everyone to hang their coats.
Here’s a peak at the hallway up to one of our stairways. We are in the process of refinishing the stairs to match the rest of the wide pine floors Jason is putting in upstairs:). In the yellow frame is one of my new free prints from craftberry bush.
Don’t forget to pin our farmhouse entryway/ foyer!!!
There is a glimpse upstairs into our Spring living room. Happy first week of Spring:). I can’t wait to get outside and start gardening! The snow is finally melting here. Yay!
