Foyer Metamorphosis

This was our foyer back when we first moved in last year. Oh the possibilities it held!
This is what our foyer transformed into late last night at the witching hour!;) I was stewing over my island fiasco and helping The Hubster kill a wasp that our furry children had noticed buzzing abt in the window above the door. After he almost toppled off the ladder it dawned on me where to put that adorable little HomeGoods table I purchased a few weeks back off of the local yard sale site. The coat rack use to sit on the opposite side and I really loathed the fact that it was the first thing you saw when you walked n the door. Now it is nicely concealed behind the door but still in the perfect spot to catch the coats.
This is were my awesome pumpkin sign that I won from Paula over at Castle & Cottage ended up! All I need to do is add some pumpkins and it will be good to go. Thanx again Paula for such a great giveaway! 


And here is that adorable lil' table. I added some music sheet scrap book paper to the  shelf in the middle  to add some extra charm to it. The lil' picture frame will soon become a lil' chalk board reminding me to go to the mailbox everyday. I seem to forget abt that most days since we have a community mailbox instead of a single one in our yard. Of course Pedro had to rest at the bottom. The possibilities for this lil' table here are really endless. I am looking forward to decorating it for the seasons. I am already pining for an outlet to go close to where she resides so I can put a little lamp on her or even my antique ceramic Christmas tree. Wink wink to the Papa Bear!;)I get giddy just thinking abt it all!:)

Here is what the bench looked like after I stole the decoration from the frame to put in the office.  Trust me when I say the shoes have been much much worse.
This is the newly organized bench area. I cleaned out the coat closet which  stores all of our shoes on a closet organizer I had used in the nursery when the boys were little. We shall see how long the shoes stay put up. I am really loving the signs but not digging the circle in the frame but it will do for now.

With very little effort I think I added some much needed coziness and warmth to our foyer. Thanx for stopping by and be sure to hop on over to
BTNOTP for Metamorphosis Monday and see other wonderful transformations!
