Back to the Indoors

We’ve accepted the fact that it’s going to rain until Sunday and we STILL have yet to set foot on our patio. It was sealed last Tuesday and needed a week to dry, but it’s been raining since this past Saturday. We also hoped to get some gardening done early in May to avoid the heat of summer, but with the weather forecast for this weekend, it seems like it’s inevitable.

So we decided to focus on our entryway project again. Remember that one? The one we were obsessed with until school forced me to stop working on it? Well we last left off with some priming and we actually purchased a mirror for over the desk weeks ago. I’ve been itching to hang it and tonight we finally did!

I wanted something round to offset the straight lines of the picture frame molding we will be adding underneath the chair rail we installed. I found the perfect round, chunky, espresso mirror in Lowe’s but it was too large. I wanted something just like it, but smaller than the 32 inches round it was. Thankfully, the universe aligned for me for once and made my search easy by dropping a 26 inch round mirror in a Target store one Sunday afternoon. It was exactly what we needed.

The rain makes for awful picture taking conditions, so I apologize for the poor quality of these.

We still have to put some white semi-gloss on the bottom half of the wall, add additional molding and replace the lamp shade with a white one. Then I’ll be able to get a better idea of this area and what else I can add to it. I also couldn’t resist the larger Lowe’s mirror, so we picked that up to hang elsewhere 🙂

Oh and I think I’m going to start a photo hunt game to find Macky in my pictures. He is such a champion photo bomber. Yep the black blob on the landing you can hardly see in the picture above…

…is our project supervisor, barking (meowing?) orders from the stairs.

At least he’s happy we’ve moved our projects indoors! 🙂

    Boo rain and not getting to set foot on your patio, but hooray entryway! I love that mirror (and I still lover everything else).

    And I’m glad Freckles&Dots aren’t the only photo bombers.
