This is the wall right inside the staircase in the foyer. It's the first thing you see when you walk in the front door. Since we've moved in, this pedestal and flower arrangement has sat here and while I love it, I figured it was time for a change.
The rest of the foyer needs to be painted and we are installing wainscoting around the outer walls too.
...but since little space is so isolated, it got a coat of natural almond paint (Behr with primer). The console is from Ikea (Hemnes) and it's a shoe cabinet! How smart is that!? The mirror is from TJ Maxx and the other accessories were pulled from other rooms in the house.
So, here is the finished look:

The "32" is our house number. Hobby Lobby had them for 50% off. I had a ball decorating this little space for the holidays. Here is Halloween:
But, I'm loving the "everyday" look:
for now...Valentines Day is coming~ :)
