I’ve been busy this morning trying to get things done before I head to work this afternoon, I was reading blogs while having my cup of coffee and I got so motivated to do something so I decided to clear out my entryway and use what I have on hand here.
The first two pictures are before pictures of my entryway so very hard to take pictures in here, I can never get a good angle of it and the weather always is a factor but if I waited on Mother Nature I’d never take pictures! The first picture is a more recent one…
I even changed things around when I was prim as you can see.
Here is the after…the chair is a really chippy off white, I have two of them that were given to me and they have been in the basement for a little while and really never thought I’d ever use them. They look like there are from the 30’s or 40’s and I can see from the picture that I have to take the suitcase off the chair looks just too big! I’m liken it though, like I said I can’t get everything in the picture, above is a chippy, green peg board and I have a straw beach bag from the Bahamas hanging on it but now even that looks to big. Next to the chair is a washstand I found at Goodwill for $15.00 last year, I don’t know if I should paint it white or not.
I went shopping Friday with my friend Linda and found this neat suitcase at TJ Max for $12.99 with the Eiffel Tower on it and just fell in love, but again to big for the chair…darn! I didn’t even realize it until I viewed the picture on here.
I also got to go in Pottery Barn for Kids and found the letter K on sale for $8.99, they sure are expensive but beautiful things in there, I didn’t get to go in Restoration Hardware to look around but maybe next time!
Here’s the K next to the very first thing I painted…the lamp, I need a new shade for this lamp too.
I painted this black frame today also
Used this antiquing medium that I found at Jo-Ann’s with a linen white.
This is how it turned out, pretty neat I think for the first time, I used a folder that I bought at the Dollar Tree and cut it to use for a picture. You can’t tell by this picture but using the medium brought some of the black out on the frame.
well, just got home a little bit ago from work so I’m finishing up this post, did you think I’d let my entryway alone? Nope, tweaked it a little when I got home and now here is how it looks right now. I switched the washstand and the chair.
What do you think?
Should the suitcase sit on the floor or chair?
I know I need more “stuff” like rugs, lampshades and I know I need to paint so many more things, I’m really stumped on what shade of white to get…anyone know of any? I know everyone talks about a Heirloom White on blogs…what shade of white should I go with?
I hope everyone is having a good evening where ever you are♥
PS. What size picture do you use if you are using Live Writer? I so appreciate it if you know and leave a comment for me!
