Let there be light!


Ok, it is really time to make some changes in the front foyer....you see we just pass through it and don't really use it. The front door is opened for light and only get used on Halloween. Well, I did get a new light for the hall. I really love it. You see the other light was picked out 37 years ago. I did love milk glass back then. The wood in the hall and the floors were stained dark walnut, you see it was 1973. The walls were painted first, then wallpapered, then re wallpapered. It was a while ago, but what I did not realize was that it was 1989 the last time we wallpapered the hall. The downstairs foyer, runs down a hallway and upstairs into the upper hall. I don't know why I have neglected this area, but I have. I painted all the stained woodwork about 5 yrs ago, we had the floors stripped down and refinished, took the runner off the stairs and had them refinished, but I just never knew what I wanted to do.


                                                                          My new light
                                                            My old light! oh, my.
 The old stained wood. Well, I have decided this will be our first project of the new year. So wait and see...these are the before and I am not sure what you will see in the after, but this wallpaper will be gone, gone, gone! Stay tuned....

The new light looks great! Isn't it funny how we let things go and not notice until one day it is glaringly obvious a decade has passed? I am guilty of thinking perhaps it will come back in style and be vintage, right?

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful weekend!
