Foyer Update

Sunday, December 13, 2020

Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a great weekend.  I am excited because we have decided to do an update on our foyer.  One of my concerns, when we bought this house, was that it doesn't have a coat closet. It has a really small entryway bench built-in at the garage door, but that is it. I have found the perfect solution.

I was scrolling Instagram for mudroom inspiration and stumbled upon this image by Marly Dice.   I recognize an IKEA Pax closet when I see one. I knew this was something that we (mainly Nick) could build out ourselves.

Rather than have a bench in the middle, that I know we would never sit on, I want to build out a console similar to this with pretty metal grates that will act as a dog den. 

Or we may modify something like this to act as the dog doors.

I'm thinking we will use this countertop to top off the middle piece. 

With this mirror hung above it. I think we are going to back the wall space in the same blue grasscloth that I used in the built-ins next to the fireplace.

Now I just need to pick out a new chandelier and rug for the foyer.  Do you find yourself doing more projects around the house while we are "safer at home"?
