I used the Photoshop to quickly create a mockup of what the foyer would look like with the transformation I have in mind. It's not perfect but you get the idea. Dare I use the safe word "painting" again? I hope my husband is not reading my blog. :) Yes, I am thinking of painting the staircase riser and wall string in the same antique white as the wainscoting. Do you like it? In the picture on the right, the huge framed art is also gone, so I think I can like a foyer without any art on the wall but we will see.
The foyer project is only going to a slow one with holidays and our long vacation on the way. On the related note, I did pick up these sparkly in time for hosting holiday parties. They are from Origin Crafts in Polished Nickel finish. More update on the mini dining room makeover will follow.
Hope you all have a great weekend! My birthday is next week so this is going to be an action-packed weekend with shopping and good eats.
