I've mentioned before that our entryway is tiny. And what makes a room look bigger? Mirrors! I purchased a mirror at Home Goods last year...and I just put it up today! I had been waiting because I wanted to paint the walls first. And since that doesn't seem to be happening any time soon I figured I should get it done. I forgot to take a before pic so below is all I could find...you can kinda see a little of the mirror and shelf.
Blah decor a la walmart. This was before I learned that things can be functional and pretty. And here it is now...
I wish I could give you a better picture of the whole space because just buy adding a huge mirror and taking away the shelf the "room" seems so much bigger! I still have to find a place for my girls' to hang their coats. I had some hooks from Ikea but they looked so puny below the mirror so I'm trying to decide whether to keep them and put them somewhere else or look for more substantial hooks.
And while I was there I made one more quick change. Remember this project?
Well I wasn't really lovin' the paper I used. I wanted something a bit brighter. I found some paper at the hob lobster on clearance. I had no clue what I was going to do with it but for 59cents I knew I would find something. It's a big paisley print with chocolate brown, aqua (hee hee), orange, pink!
(sorry about the craptastic photos again! Still raining)
ahhhhh much better! I love how it pulls out the colors more then the other paper did, actually the other paper didn't do that at all :-D
And fyi...I have made the leap and am attempting my first furniture makeover. YIKES!! I'm scurred. Stay tuned. Even if it turns out bad I promise to show you guys cuz I know you'll go easy on me :-)
