Fab Foyer Part 2


Hi all,
 I hope you had a rootin tootin holiday. I sure did. As promised here is part 2 of my fab foyer. Lot's of pics this time.



Can you spot the elephant in the room? It's the big cedar wall and Hubby love's it, me not so much. So here's what I did to get the best of both worlds.
 

I found two Broyhill chest at a thrift store for $10 each. You can't beat that with a stick! I primed,painted and bought new drawer pulls.

 
 I used river rock paint for the outside of the chest and a buttery yellow for the trim and inside. 
















 
 These shots give a before and after view from the front entrance.  
  
 
 Curtains were hung to break up the massive wall, they also
 added a layer of softness to the space. 
The addition of lamps, baskets, and mirrors rounded out the vignettes.
 
 
The overnight suitcases were purchased at a garage sale for $2 each. Initially they were blue, but I painted them in
a mustard color and added black to give them
 a distressed look. Lastly, the exotic florals were
added to the suitcases.
 
   
Check out the before picture at the top, big difference huh? This transformation was not hard @ all, I just did the same thing twice. Total cost for the entire makeover about $200. Thanks for stopping by.
 
2 your home,
Lory

 I love hearing from you. Contact me @ adtale@yahoo.com

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
