Revamp in the works...

I've been spiffying up my entry/hall way for the last few weeks. It's taking me forever, but I'm making great progress, at least I think so.

Here's the awful before.

Other than the artwork on the wall, it was boring and bland and a mess. I'm actually embarrassed that people came to my house and saw this.

To date, I've painted (almost done), replaced some furniture, took all the random stickers and posters off of the 12-year-olds bedroom door, and hung new art work. I still need to finish painting (I've lost some steam), install the new hardwood flooring that I'm going to get this weekend and recover the red bench (not pictured in this picture).

Here's the after...even though it's not quite an after. More like a midway point.




I'm not afraid of color in the slightest and I just love this bright yellow. The room's colors are yellow, red, turquoise and white for the most part. After the flooring is installed I want to get a large rug that coordinates and ties the room all together. I'm sure that will be a massive search.

So far I'm happy with the results. A few tweaks here and there and I'll be even happier.

To see the full array of things I've done so far you can check these photos out.

I *LOVE* the yellow paint. It's so cheery and reminds me off Latin homes.

It looks great! I love the colors and the light and the arrangement of frames on the wall.
