My actual plan includes three small, related spaces:
Our front door and the area immediately surrounding it, in particular this shrub which has taken over half the doorway.
I have had no idea since we moved in what this bush was, and have been just waiting to see it do something. These photos show a little bit of red on the leaves so maybe it's a burning bush??
The foyer, where we all come & go as well as greet guests.
And an itsy-bitsy powder room. It's all-white and rather sterile.
Our house was built in the late 1950s so the vibe will be mid-century modern glam.
Some things I already love about the space...
Actually I don't know if the door will stay orange. But it is a fun color choice!
This light fixture is original to our house and I love its retro-ness. In an ideal world, though, the beech bi-fold closet doors would be replaced.
I'm super glad to have the double-hooks here on the wall for hoodies and vests. We also have some great storage in the nearby closet, however, this area could be better organized.
***The punchlist for this project includes some things I've never done before like stenciling and sewing. And, as always, the budget for this project is just about zero... What might happen over the next six weeks is anyone's guess!
Now head over to Linda's to check out the rest of the participants! Then please come back next week to see what I've gotten done. You can sign up to receive blog posts by email on the right or follow on Facebook here.
