After giving remodeling the staircase and giving it a new rustic flare, the foyer (that houses the stairs) just needed a a new look. Plus, my mom had always admired that bench that has always been in the foyer, so I just gave it to her. :)
During the Christmas season, I had my big fireside chair in the foyer, to make room for the big Christmas tree where the chair usually is. So, when Christmas was over, that sort of left the foyer bare with the bench gone.
Since it will take a while deciding on and collecting what I want to adorn the staircase, I looked around my house to see what I could come up with for the foyer.
This is what I came up with:
The stove is normally used either in our bedroom or at the end of the hall, but it's found a new home for now. I purchased the the gameboard awhile back with birthday money. I've been waiting on more gameboards to display as a collection, but I really loved it here. Although I kind of like it just resting on the stove right now, I plan on hanging it on the wall behind the stove.
Sometimes you just have to shop around the house for a fresh look. I think it cozied up the foyer and it makes me happy. :)
