Foyer - Marking This One Done.

Yeah, not much of an improvement. The foyer still says that we are under construction and that the floors, walls, and ceiling are unfinished. I can't really do much about that until it actually IS time to finish that part of the room. But what it now also says is that I've chosen a color (and trim color) for the wall, the buffet is set up for guests to place their purse or keys, and the clutter is put away. (I promised I would keep this real, and "under construction" is the reality here, so I'm working with what I've got.)

In fact, our eventual plan for this area is to have something like this instead of the buffet.
What I did to get closer to this goal is only utilize the buffet for items that will eventually go in this area. My handknits are neatly folded in the drawers of the buffet because I will eventually store them in the bench. I found a new home for all of the manuals and computer gear that we previously stored in the buffet because it will eventually need a new home anyway.

So, while it's not final, it is functional and headed in that direction. I'm considering this one "case closed."

Coming up - clearing away some emotional clutter. . .

Just wondering what color of paint that is on the wall. I like it! I'm looking for something orange/spice/pumpkin-y for our entry way and up the stairs. I get so confused!

Jean - "done" is relative. LOL.

Laura - it's a Sherwin Williams color called Copper Pot. The photo actually doesn't do it justice I wonder why? Maybe it's the unfinished floor and ceiling and the hole in the drywall.

The thing about dramatic colors is that once you get the entire area painted, it's doesn't seem nearly as dark.

Hey, BF! I had a wild hair this morning and turned sigs on and followed you here. :) We're living parallel lives it seems what with dog hair everywhere in a house that we're redoing while living in it while sleeping crazy shift hours dreaming of perfect organization!! Things look great there.
