Foyer Update Week 4

I am moving right along on my progress on the foyer. This week was devoted to painting. Before hanging the new wallpaper, I painted the molding above and below the wallpaper area so as not to have any mishaps on the new wallpaper. This week I painted the wall below the chair rail, the baseboards, the risers on the stairs, and the spindles, all 75 of them, and the newel posts, the doors to the coat closets, and the doors to the living room and dining room. It was a lot of tedious work. Now I am ready to get to the fun part. I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

Pat this space is truly looking wonderful! You have come such a long way. I have been thinking of you often and saying a prayer each time you cross my mind.

Tricia @ Suburban Bitches said...

Wow! What gorgeous wallpaper! I was literally talking to a designer friend yesterday about how we both wanted to wallpaper our hallways and were a little intimidated by the process. You've done an absolutely gorgeous job here. Can't wait to see your hallway with all the finishing touches!
