Foyer: The Finished Product

FINALLY!!!  It's been a long 14 months, and while we're definitely older, I'd like to think we're a little wiser too.  After all, we now know how to remove ancient wallpaper glue, repair plaster, cut and install crown molding, put up tin (ok...faux tin) tiles, and close our eyes and ignore the whole mess when we're overwhelmed.

So once again, here's the BEFORE photo- from the real estate listing when we bought the house:

And here are a few of the progress along the way:





And now that the moldings are up, the caulking and touch up painting are done, and the new rug is in place, here are the final photos!

I hope you enjoy this photo because taking it gave me a horrible episode of vertigo and Lance had to take all of the rest!






Here is the crown molding before the seams were caulked and painted:

The finished look:


We still need to put the pictures on the walls, but the room itself is DONE! I feel like now we're going to be begging everyone who comes to the door to come in and see it- the mail carrier, girl scouts selling cookies, the UPS guy.......  "No, it's cool, we're not creepers! We're just really proud of our foyer!"
