Entryway revamp

I have been wanting to share my revamped entryway. Let me show you some of the past changes to present day.

Here we have my $20 auction table decked out for Halloween.

Then, a Christmas present (DIY upholstered settee).

The Union Jack craze.

Next, a trip to the Salvation Army and a Craigslist purchase to produce this.


The most up to date revamp came from a garage sale and festival. I could not resist asking the gentleman if this gorgeous chest was for sale. He said that he would have to ask his wife but he would be urging her to sale it and 2 matching night stands. So, I left my name and number. Fast forward about 3 weeks. I was in the same neighborhood for a community sale. Showed up at the same house and talked to the husband again. Again, left my name and number. After about 3 weeks, I thought it was a loss. Then, out of the blue the lady called. I got it and they even delivered it for me. They were the nicest couple ever! I am so in love with the curves of this chest. It is an antique from England.

I picked up the canvas painting at a festival and the wood horse cutout from another festival.  I just love the painting.  Once I sale the french curio to the left, I may frame the painting. 

Just look at the colors in the painting. 

 Boy, I have changed that entryway a lot in just two years!  I may have a problem. 

Now that you have seen my many entryway looks, which do you like the best?

    Are you looking to sell the 2 chairs from the salvation army/craig's list adventure??

    I'm looking to put some low, small chairs in front of my fireplace. Feel free to text or facebook me!

  7. I love them all but that chest is to die for! Lucky you!

  8. Your new chest is the oil painting too! It was well worth the wait :o)

  9. I am in love with the settee and union jack look. I can't believe all the transformations you've done, each one so different but so beautiful.
