Decorating the Foyer with Antiques

By July 28, 2010Decorating

This past weekend, Doug and two of the boys went to visit my Father-in-law, leaving me home, ALONE, (for most of the time) for 28 hrs!

I highly considered, soaking my feet, doing my nails, eating bon bons and watching Food Network…but, alas, that didn’t happen. What did I do?

Well, like any crazy blogger does! Clean and re-decorate so that I can share with my readers!

A few months back, I shared with you the Antique Horse that I found in the basement, I went searching again and found this cute little chair and these old shutters.

I love the charm that little chairs have, I shared the chair on our front porch for Spring and Summer. They fill up any bare corner, and add a bit of whimsy as well.

I started with a clean slate…

I love the Hydrangeas on the wallpaper and had a 4 foot tree with dried hydrangeas on it for quite awhile. It was time for a change though.

I added the shutter in the corner, placed a plant stand with a tablecloth and a little lamp in front of it. And then on the chair, I stacked some books, a little wooden box and added a little watering can with fresh ivy from the yard.

I love the pop of color, but not too shocking, that the watering can gives.

There were a whole stack of shutters, so I grabbed another one and hung it on the wall in the Living Room.

After seeing this idea on one of my favorite blogs, Miss Mustard Seed, I knew just what I wanted to do. I simply hung the shutter and added a grapvine wreath. I like how it fills up the length of the wall.

Remember the horse I mentioned earlier? There he is! Don’t you just love him? He is my favorite, although, I think I have a new favorite…not far behind

And yes…I found it in the basement too! The people that own our home left lots of great treasurers, that I am now enjoying.

Even better…I spent nothing..nada…zero on my re-decorating weekend!
