Front Hall Reveal

Finally the moment you've all been waiting for... the front hall revealed!  Remember what it looked like before?

That's a LOT of green! 
After we planned and installed molding and painted the walls you saw the HUGE improvement, but after the light was installed, the mirror was hung and the new mirrored closet doors were up the room looked so much more modern and bright.

I appologize for the night pictures, especially since the increased brightness during the day is so wonderful!  But we do what we have to do... after all that planning the room is finally done, and I couldn't wait a second longer to share it with you!!

In an effort to keep things organized we have a cute little dish for keys and a tray for mail.
Also, I love this picture that I bought at an art fair, its actually made with embroidary thread!  It has an amazing shimmer up close... photos don't do it justice.
I also bought that cute basket under the table for collection of odds and ends that seem to always accumulate in the front hallway.  That way we can keep it off the floor and off the table.  Messy tables drive me insane!  I orginally had the cute basket that I found on a trip to Value Village that I told you about before, but I thought it was too small, this one works much better and I found it at Winners for only $12.

So there it is!  Our new front hallway.  I think that visitors will feel much more welcomed and I know that I am proud to answer the door and invite people in.  So come on in and stay awhile... if you missed any of the adventures along the way check out how the front hall went from before to after.

Fantastic! It makes such a difference to the space. Even though they are night pictures you can definitely tell there is more light in the area.

It would feel so much bigger. I love the little dishes too. I saw that in a movie recently and want to copy it! lol. :)

I can picture it...It's Friday, you come in the entry from a long day's work, you plop your keys and mail in the cute dishes, take a moment to marvel at that SPLENDID color on the walls, then sashay into the bedroom and change into a fabulous gown for a night out. When you're ready, you enter the hall once again, check your lipstick in that beautiful grandiose mirror, marvel at the paint once again and exit through the door. No wait....forgot something....come back in, take another look....ah, yep it looks PERFECT!! :D
