The foyer...update~

I shared recently the Pottery Barn dresser that I painted with my new favorite Benjamin Moore color, Beach Glass.  For the past week or so, I have been on the hunt for a new mirror for the space as well.

Well, hubby and I made a trip over to Queen of Hearts Antiques in Alpharetta over the weekend.  I not only found a fantastic mirror for the space (that in the end I decided not to change one bit once I got it home), but I found a set of three fantastic candlesticks as well.  Both, paired with my Seahorse lamp from Home Goods and my oyster shell frame inspired by Amanda of Dixie Delights finished off the space nicely.  I still would love to add "something", maybe a few more older books to the mix.  But, for now I am happy.



After painting with old mirror (it found a home in #2s room).

All put together.

Seahorse lamp, a Home Goods find.

Oyster shell frame inspired by Amanda at Dixie Delights.

Candlesticks found at Queen of Hearts Antiques. Love the beachy worn finish.

Mirror, also found at Queen of Hearts Antiques.  The mirror has some scratches, but I think it adds character.
It has a solid wood frame and backing, and appears to be quite old.

Another angle from the office entry.
I am super excited with how it turned out, and am glad to check it off my list.

Continuing to pray for all throughout our region touched by the storms the past few days.  We are bracing for round 2 here later today.

I am swooning over that lamp. and the oyster picture frame. loves! everything. and beach glass is a beautiful color. I love how it changes in the light of day. I think I told you we painted our dining room ceiling that color and I know it may sound weird but I still walk in there just to see what color it has morphed to. perfect color pick for that piece!
