We finally took a big first step forward in a foyer makeover first envisioned in 2009. (For the unattractive "before" images and my initial inspiration, see this post.) The wheels of progress turn slowly at Chez Bromeliad.
We bought the newish Expedit bookcase (the one with the staggered shelving) and turned it on its side. I'm amazed at how a big piece of white furniture can lighten up a space.
The accessories and photo frames were all castoffs from the neighbors. The photos are our own.
Sorry I can't give you one photo of the whole thing. I backed up clear into the hallway and it was still too tight for a wide shot. And the neighbors were staring.
The only drawback with the Expedit on its side is that the silver screwheads show on the ends of the bookcase, a detail that greatly disturbed me for about a day.
Do you have any little projects to share or some inspiration you've been sitting on for two years like me? Link up at my Inspired blog party.
