Kitchen and Foyer Makeover

Here is our foyer when we moved in (on the Left) and then once I got to it…. ripped carpet off stairs, stripped wallpaper down, painted walls.  Notice the stairs…. icky.  

And here is our foyer now…. painted a neutral greenish color… stairs sanded and stained a dark walnut, and risers/railings painted.  *sigh* soooo much better!
And the kitchen…..  We obviously still have to get that beam framed in, drywalled and painted.  (UGH).  And I just purchased the slate tiles for the floor… not sure when that will get done.  I also want to find a black fridge and black stove/microwave to replace the white… eventually I want stainless steel but black will be a lot cheaper for now.

  3. Hi Nicole,I sometimes visit your blog through Jane or Saide, I noticed in this post you have a mirror in your dining room that looks similar to the PB Eagan mirror. Can I ask where you got it? I have been looking for one.

  4. It looks amazing! I absolutely love your decorating style. And even better, you usually DIY on a budget!And once again I have a question about where you got something….I have been looking for a mirror with hooks like the one in your entryway. Would you mind sharing where you found it?
