An Eclectic Entry

Hi lovelies, after all the Christmas decor was put up my foyer looked so sad. I kinda ignored it for a few weeks. I really wanted to do something a bit different BUT what? Well, this is what I came up with...

I wanted something different, and that is what I got! Lol
 


 


I got some cardboard letters at JoAnn's Fabrics and
painted them with Martha Stewart grey chalk paint.
 
 
 After they dried I rubbed a bit of white paint thinned with water over them, to give the letters that galvanized metal look.
 

XOXOXO

  2. Spectacular entry. And I love how you made the cardboard letters look like old tin letters. I am pinning this right now. I came down with a mild obsession for those cardboard letters this past Christmas and even did a V for Valentine's Day. Can't wait to give this a try. Visiting from Mod Mix Monday.

  4. Love your new eclectic entry, it looks great! The idea of turning the old washtub on its side and putting a wreath inside is just pure genius! It has been beautiful here in Washington this whole weekend, I've gotten a lot done too... the garage is NOT one of them though and it needs to be organized so bad!

  33. Hi Christine,
    I love the "junk-inspired" new look in your foyer...it's perfect! Great use of the cardboard letters from JoAnn's. Glad you are getting some good weather there; we're still covered in way too much snow here in the Northeast. First visit to your blog and will be back!

  34. Love your eclectic foyer. It's unique and so creative. Is that a deer antler in the tub? It looks similar to one I found at our home's construction site this week, except yours looks bigger and has more points. We had nice weather for days and days here in NE Oregon, however it's snowing today. It's okay, though. It's supposed to warm up after today.
