What. A. Weekend. If you haven’t read Sunday’s blog post, read it HERE and then pop back over…
Now that we are all up to speed, we can all agree that life (good or bad) can change in an instant. Last Thursday, moving was so far from my mind that I would’ve laughed in your face if you had told me otherwise. I quite possibly would’ve even committed you. I mean, we have just now almost finished our renovations here! However, I have to say that there are no words for how excited I am. The bigger the project, the bigger the stars in my eyes. Let’s just sum it up by saying our house has apparently been dubbed “the green monster”. It’s a monster in size and a monster of a project. You know what Mark and I say to that? Bring. It. On.
For those of you that I promised a frame DIY to for today’s post (you know who you are), I PROMISE it is coming later this week. I started it over the weekend but some “minor little things” took up most of our weekend. You know, buying a house and all. So that’s that but as for my blogging life, things will go on as normal. Of course the new house will be added to my blogging schedule but I will still be doing a full and now final (sniff sniff) updated home tour and the other planned DIY’s and such. So without further ado, here’s our completely updated foyer tour!
BEFORE (after the walls were painted and such)
So as you can see, it was all a bit drab and let’s say “cookie cutter/builder grade” kinda style. Basically the polar opposite of my style. Nothing wrong with tan and white whatsoever, this girl just needs some color in her life! The first thing I purchased for our foyer and actually our entire home was the chandelier. This gorgeous turquoise color served as the inspiration for our entire main level. From there I wanted to capture this color in a show stopping staircase project, read more and get the full tutorial on that HERE. The ombre stairs bring the color down as a focal point and the ombre effect draws your eye up the stairs toward the ceiling. I chose to accent the vaulted ceiling with a gold metallic paint, detailed HERE, which coordinates with these AMAZING gold driftwood sconces. The next big, fun project in this space was the stencil wall! You can read more about that and get the full tutorial HERE. I wanted a little pop of wow on that fun little angled wall and I have to admit that’s one of my prouder DIY moments.
After that it was all about the accessories! I got super duper lucky at HomeGoods with the tables flanking the front doors, the cow head (my little “nod” to living on a “farm”), the vases on the front tables as well as some of the smaller accessories. The rug was one of my last finds and it completely caps off the space! Finally, the “Hello” prints at the doorway are my little obsession. If you are interested in purchasing these or any other Sugarboo Designs prints, simply e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I can get you a great deal!

Needless to say, I am in love with our entryway. It is me in every way possible and I love that it showcases my style and love for color as soon as you enter our home. So, welcome to our home!
