Wondering where I was missing? I am sorry for not posting regularly. My mom was visiting us from India. She was here for 3 months and flew back last week. I enjoyed every moment with her.
Today I am sharing our entryway/foyer. Its not a makeover, more of how it looks and what I did.
Its a very small space, 6ft by 5ft. Its a tiled entry with 3 doors on its 3 sides.
As you enter through the main door, you have a door on the right that leads to garage and a door on the left that's the powder room.
I had to work with the very little space without crowding or blocking any of the doors and with a very narrow wall. Either I could use an entry table or a very narrow cabinet. The entry table I was looking for was without any sharp edges.
Couple of months after we moved in, I found this half round table at World Market. Originally it was for $99, went on 50% off and I had a $10 off coupon. I am still undecided if I want to stain it a darker color or paint it. Yes, It's been 2 years now. And still undecided.
Earlier I had a wooden carved mirror from Target on this wall. I was not happy with the color and size so I was on the look out for one. As usual, I kept browsing till I found what I wanted.this and this? Mr. Tweaks did comment "overdose of these mirror's". But I
I as well had picked the orchid from Ikea. A fake one. Yes, I do have fake ones in my home. I am not one of those with green thumb.
So, the fake orchid in the fake brass pot looks like this. I did not want to crowd the table, since the table is a small one. And either us or our guest might need a little space on the table to put down keys or small stuffs.
I am yet to find something for the lower shelf of the table. We did not change the light fixture at the entrance yet. Waiting for it to become an eyesore. It took us sometime to find a rug which was not thick enough so it would not hinder opening the entrance door or the garage door. I found this one at Ross, which has rubber bottom. It really helps the rug to stay in place. I did not have enough options to select. Had to pick what was available.
