Foyer Face Lift

This entry foyer is in our home.  The walls are painted a soft neutral shade, by Glidden paint,  Bonjour Beige.  This antique console will soon be joined with three modern horizontal mirrors hung above it. I love mixing modern elements with antiques!

My husband has two assistants,  myself and our English Chocolate Labrador,Titus!

Doesn’t he look like a puppy??? He is five years old, I think his Botox is working!  :-)

The three mirrors we will use were meant to hang vertical.  Although the console wasn’t wide enough to accommodate the mirrors,  instead we will hang them on the horizontal.  That will require moving the brackets on the backside of the mirrors.

Where is a Snap-On tool, when you need one ???

  4. I love the the idea of bringing old traditions back in a new and exciting way. What a great idea with the burlap stockings and it is done with such elegance. I will use this one!!
