My small foyer Photographed by Robert Levi
I wanted to show you this picture above first so you can see the wall color through a professional lens. This is the continuation of the left wall below.
I found this awful before picture of my entryway. We got rid of the this closet which was on the wall where the chair in the picture above is.
Anyhow, our door was not the part of my house I was most proud of and I kept it untouched for a long time. Sorry, I didn't find before pictures. It was a bare space with nothing, literally. Walls and door were all beige. Boring! until I decided to do something more than just painting it. I had a carpenter install simple molding that I got at Lowe's to make it look like paneling and painted all, well, yes beige, but I had a vision. I went to Dykes and got a half round spoked pediment (not exactly the one pictured below) of the same width of our door, painted the door and the pediment black and put mirror inside it to make it appear like a window. This photograph doesn't really give it any justice. It really looks beautiful and dramatic which is what I was looking for. I hope this inspires you to do something beautiful for yourself and your home.
