I’ve mentioned our newly painted living room on social media but haven’t shared it with you lovely readers yet! It took a trip up to the Cost Plus World Market opening in Hyannis to kick me into action. We’ve always had bright furniture in this room, but with the newly painted white walls and my shopping haul… it all comes together and actually MATCHES!
OH my gosh… with all the excitement of the past couple of months (Houzz, Home and Family, One Room Challenge…) I realized I never shared our new FOYER!!! I mean, it’s not “new”, but I finally pulled it together! I see it everyday since it’s the kids favorite place to set up their ‘indoor swimming pool’ (translation: bringing every throw pillow from the 1st floor into one pile) but I’ve kept it secret from you by accident! Sorry!!
There’s no way to do this briefly so grab a cup of coffee… this is going to be a whopper. First of all, thanks to Linda from Calling it Home for the motivation and thanks to ALL OF YOU for being such wonderful cheerleaders throughout the last 6 weeks. SUCH fun! Just to remind you where this all started… May I submit Exhibit A. We moved into this house last April, and the formal dining room had become a dumping ground for everything from craft projects to dog food to extra furniture. Not good.
Last fall, I asked Martha what she wanted for Christmas and her answer was a desk. As the middle of our five kids, she watches her two big siblings sit down to write and draw and you can see her little wheels turning. I finally put the finishing touches on this corner in her room and it looks adorable… just like the artist in residence.
