Here is what you have seen before...
We recently got a new front door which lets in much more light. I am delighted with how it looks and even though this photo does not do it justice, it makes the space much brighter, so mission accomplished!
The chest of drawers was a freebie given new life with a few coats of paint, nail head trim and new hardware. I always keep something pretty and seasonal in the large vase. Today I have some hydrangea from my garden. The tray corrals the mail and other "stuff."
The antique "buggy bench" was my Mom's and I love having a spot to sit and put on my shoes or drop my bag.
The floor tile is something I am not crazy about, but since it is embedded in concrete and would take a jackhammer to remove and lots of $$ to replace, we have made it work. And, it is a little quirky, which I like!
Thanks Rene for hosting such a great little soirée. I love a good party and can't wait to see which room we will party in next month!
