Spring Spruce Up: Entryway

Welcome back from the long weekend! While I enjoyed every minute of the holiday (and the unofficial start to summer!), it always goes by way too fast. My mom and I went to see Les Miserables at the local theatre on Saturday and I spent most of yesterday working on projects around my house.

The latest spot to be spruced up is my entryway. My gallery wall is also part of this little nook - but since it managed to be completed before this spot, it got its own feature. Just a few details: The table and mirror above were both black and desperately needed to be brought to life. The beautiful minty paint on the table was left over from a room-painting project at my parents' house. There was just enough paint left to make this table quite the focal point. After looking at all the photos I realize how incredibly girly (and colorful) my townhouse is becoming. And, ya know, I really love it that way! Read on for more photos and details on the pieces featured!
