I’m often amazed how small changes can make a big difference, and this is one of those times!
Our foyer is a good size, but it tends to be rather dark. On top of that, I have a bit of a mish-mash of furniture in the space, including at least three different wood tones (not intentional!). I tackled both of these problems by painting a wooden cabinet that we have had for about a decade. This covered up one of the wood finishes and added a bright pick-me-up to the entry.
I recently decoupaged the simple mirror above the cabinet with patterned paper, and the next step was to paint the cabinet a bright and dramatic color. I found Rust-oleum gloss spray paint in a color called Green Citrus which shows off the outlines of this antique Chinese cabinet perfectly. I also changed out our faux birch branches for a tropical plant, and the foyer feels much brighter and happier!
Welcome home, sweet home!
