More Changes to the Foyer

Hello everyone!

Well, I got the urge to make more changes to the foyer.  I know, I know, I know.  Didn't I just make changes recently? Well...............yes.  But, a girl can change her mind right?  I do that a lot!  I'm sure you already know that about me by now.  

So, here's what I did.  I moved my chest of drawers down just a little bit so it was facing the opposite room more squarely. It just seems better centered to me.  Then, I moved my lamp to the opposite side of the chest.  I added some accessories that weren't previously on the chest for a fresh new look.


Some old black books were topped with my wooden beads and cross. I kept the dog artwork propped up on the stair wall.



Then, I added some white soup tureens to brighten up the top a bit.  These came off my mantel.



I added a faux olive branch in my olive bucket.  Pretty well coordinated, don't ya think?!  



And I'm calling it done.......for now!  


But, if that wasn't enough, I made yet another change to the wall leading into our family room.  I hung my preserved boxwood wreath there.  My dog picture  (it replaced) is slowing making its rounds to another place in the house. I believe it will end up in my upstairs hallway where the wreath used to hang.  


I love making these simple changes to the house for a fresh new look.  I just shopped the house for all of these goodies.  

I may work on cleaning up my basement storage area soon and  show you where I store all of my unused pieces.  Right now, it's a complete disaster!  

Thanks for stopping by.

No way would I ever show my attic which is where I store my pieces that are resting at the moment.

I am seeing so many boxwood wreaths lately - I must get one.

I love the changes you made! The soup tureens look great there. I have a pale yellow one that I'm storing in my laundry room, but I'd like to display it somewhere. I've always loved boxwood wreaths and your looks great on that wall. And the olive branch in the olive bucket...perfection! :)

It looks wonderful, Kelly! I really like the white tureens on the chest. Your olive bucket is one of my favorite pieces. I started working on my basement storage room. Ugh, what a project. Made a lot of progress, but now that it's nice out, I don't want to be inside working on it!

It does look "fresh". Also if you ever want real olive branches, I can hook you up :)
