Changes in the Foyer

Happy Friday everyone!

We are having glorious weather here in GA today.  Hope that your weather is just as nice.  Is sure does help when it's the weekend too!

I last showed you how I moved my clock out of the foyer and into the family room.  Of course, that left an empty spot in the foyer.  So, I moved things around and came up with this.

I placed my old column in place of the clock.  

I love it in here and have another one in my sitting room.  I found a matching set of these MANY years ago at an antique shop.  

And I moved my old hay rake to the spot that my column was.  

I liked it in my family room, but once things started moving around, this ended up being the best spot for it.

I used to have an electric sconce hanging here too.  It is now in the dining room.

Not sure why I never thought to use it in here before.  It looks like it belongs in here.

I've had the wall next to the staircase the same way for years.  Time for another slight change there as well.

I hung a vintage style mirror in place of the large basket with flowers.  The basket of flowers is now on the floor beside the chest.

And finally, I got creative one day with a wicker tray and painted some white roman numerals on it to give it a french look.  It is now hanging on the wall beside the bench.

I love the look of painted numbers on wicker.

So, that's about it for now.  I'm hoping to find some pretty pansies and cabbages to plant in my planters on the front porch this weekend.  My petunia's are looking very sad right now.  I hope that they will last a while though.  It seems that some squirrels have decided to jump in my planters and eat my flowers!!!  They make a huge mess too.  

Thanks for stopping by!  

Have a great weekend.

I love that column! I bet you're glad you got two when you saw them. The roman numerals on your wicker tray turned out great! I can't believe you can still have petunias in GA. (I'm so jealous!)They only last until very early May in TX. It's too hot after that. :)

Your house is so gorgeous. I want to come over for a real tour. Love the pillar with greenery on top.

I love the look of the hay rake in the corner against your white walls. The contrast is fabulous and makes quite a statement!

Everything looks great, Kelly, what I'd give to have a column like that, and the room for it! I really like the big basket of flowers next to your stairs, too.

I'm glad you're having great weather. My son flew down to Atlanta this morning for some kind of music festival.:)

Love that pillar. How exciting that you have two. Everything looks great. Those pesky squirrels can definitely make a mess. xo Laura

Love the changes you've made in your home, Kelly! All of my potted plants have already been hit by frost, so it's hard to imagine planting new flowers this time of year. Will your pansies last through the winter?

Andrea said...

Beautiful changes! I tend to find a place for something and leave it there forever, ha! I should mix it up some more

LOVE how you painted that wicker tray!! I also love the rake-fun and unusual!

Linda said...

Cooler weather has arrived in Texas! I'll still wait a bit before getting the pansies and cabbages here, though.
Changing even one thing makes all things seem new!

Anne said...

Kelly the weather is pretty amazing here too.I am taking it all in and enjoying it.Love all of your changes! Holy cow a pair of columns! Lucky you!It works perfectly there!

Kelli said...

I love all your changes Kelly!
We moved last week and our new home has an entry that I am looking forward to decorating. Our old home did not have one.

Sandy said...

Ah, those pesky squirrels! They've been creating messes all over my yard the past week. Love all the changes and I really like the wall sconce. I love the look of dressers in places besides a bedroom. That space by your staircase always looks good. It's fun moving things around but then the domino effect takes over.

i love your old column so much! I have been looking for one for years. Hopefully I'll find one eventually! your basket looks so great on the wall and the painted numbers are the perfect touch!

Daniela @Frugal Aint Cheap said...

I love the tall wicker basket in your entryway, and the painted roman numeral on the tray turned out really nice

Linda said...
