When we moved in, the foyer had no “wow” factor. My goal was to create an inviting/welcoming entryway that led into our home. Here are a few before pictures of the way the foyer looked prior to our updates (this first picture is from before our dining room updates).

I knew I wanted to go with a neutral color in the foyer and change the light fixture. I also wanted to add a little area where we could hang coats. For the door, we added additional trim and painted the door Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal (same color from our dining room and fireplace built ins). We used this blog to help with the trim idea. Here are some after pictures:
We used a closet knob as a hook/hanger for the wood sign. It was painted with extra grey paint I had. We then had to buy a dowel screw from Home Depot so we were able to screw it into the wall.

Upstairs in landing (Yes, we think it’s 1990 and have a cordless home phone…)

I hope you enjoy the transformation! I would love to hear your thoughts/comments.
