My entry is no grand foyer at all. It’s actually a vestibule that was added onto my home in the 1940s. At least that’s what I assume based on a matchbook I found in the walls.
This tiny area is filled with massive amounts of wallpaper and cream everything with no sha-bang! Let me show you..starting with that wallpaper!
Wallpaper. And lots of it. It’s muted gray with mini polka dot sized flowers in different shades of pink, yellow, white and green. And the once perfect touch of green leaves. An overwhelming touch.
Cream everything. Cream doors. Cream baseboards. Cream ceiling. Cream window trim that looks more like casing. Cream 4.5″ x 4.5″ tiles. This all had to be changed!
The only thing that was worth saving were the gold accents (lamp and doorknobs). You know what else I saved. The original beautiful, original oak floors that were hiding under this tile.
There was so much that needed to be done that I can’t put it all in once post. Follow along so you can see how this space is transformed and I’ll even you how you can tackle your entryway too.
You don’t want to miss the after!
