Entry Redo - Going Cottage Style

Last year, our foyer looked like this....not sure why I thought it looked pretty good...


Then at Christmas time, I took things down and never put it back together.
 

I just hung two pictures on the nails that were still there..definitely, not looking so good.


I got both of these items at Goodwill, the frame was spray painted and I added a different picture.




This is a cute sign I got at Hobby Lobby last spring.



I got (took) this sign from my daughter..


Another picture from Hobby Lobby..love the blue...



I found this shutter at Goodwill and spray painted it. I actually got this wreath at Goodwill too!


I'm starting to get the cottage look in my house


I even spray painted the mirror that's at the bottom of the steps...

Now if the weather continues to warm up, we plan on painting our kitchen cupboards a cream color.

My next project is to redo my son's room. He's got his own place and now it's time to update(redo) it.

Those two pictures, that I hung up in the foyer with the existing nails, will be going into his room. And I also have a great find from Goodwill that needs some spray paint.

Love what you did to your stairwell and entry. Your arrangement looks incredible on the wall. I have rose paintings "walking" up my stairwell. I featured a few of them today. I'm thinking of taking them down after seeing what you do, it looks lighter and fresher.

I love spray paint! Another thing I love is white shoe polish in the bottle with the applicator tip! You have controll, and the base colors bleed through! I'm new to blogging, and hope you will check out my blog!!!

Now, this is really pretty! Love it! I have painted shutters and they are a pain if they are darker colored! If you get a chance check out my blog at http://shabbychictreasures.blogspot.com/ I am giving away a darling teapot for the month of April! Hugs, Olivia

Your entry looks very cottage-y, I love the cottage look too. You gave me some good ideas, thanks. Hugs, Cindy S.

A definite improvement---that French country look is okay but I am a sucker for the cottage look! And the two bird pictures have a nice symmetry.
