Spring Entryway

Our movers officially come in less than a month to pack us up for Hawaii!  I still took a little time to freshen up of foyer for spring though, despite knowing it’ll be taken down before the end of May.  

The faux bamboo table was a DIY makeover (see post here for the makeover and to see what the foyer looked like back in October) and that stayed put because I love it.  It may eventually serve as a vanity like it’s supposed to be, but for now I’m using it as a console table.  I’d love to have a little vanity area in our next home, but we’ll see.  

I bought a new mirror recently because my old one was going on 8 years old and was from Ross.  I also decided to bring in a basket to keep the garden stool company under the table.  I also swapped out the lamp for a brass Greek key lamp I found for a measly $5 at a thrift store.  Finally, I swapped out a few blue and white vases I had laying around in other rooms.  The cute little face vase (called the celfie vase) holding ranunculus was bought at a local boutique but you can buy your own here.  This 117 year old house has certainly had it’s quirks but I have loved living here and making it our home for the past 10 months.  I don’t think I’ll ever live in a house quite as charming and I’m going to miss it once we leave!  Those ceilings have my heart ūüôā

    I love all of this – especially the face vase! If you don't mind my asking, where is the basket from? I've been looking for a tall one to corral stuff in our entry way.

    Thanks so much, Leslie! Yeah the new mirror makes all the difference and really freshens things up. And yep, it's so crazy that we're almost on our way out!

    Thank you Francie! I totally should have mentioned where that basket is from, so sorry I didn't. It's from Target from the fall. They aren't selling this one anymore but they do have some great ones right now. I also love IKEA's baskets right now!

    Thanks Linda! I just measured it and it's just under 5.5 inches tall. Hope that helps!
