Update: Entryway Additions

CREATE, SPACESLauren CaronComment

Last weekend I made a lengthy list of things to do.  I also committed to finishing at least three things on that list during the weekend. Although very they may have been minimal tasks we did manage to check off three things: hang entryway mirror, refinish new chandelier, add basket to my bike. We also started a few other projects on the list, but have yet to finish them.


The first task we completed on the list was to hang the entryway mirror. I recently decided I wanted a much larger mirror in my entry than the current convex one. Luckily, my mother had one that she was willing to give up. I also purchased a chevron rug from Ballard Designs that I love - it was a great price at $35.00. I'm really excited about hanging the wallpaper (it has arrived!) and adding a Sputnik Chandelier, which I think will really pull the whole space together.
