"Foyer" viewing pleasure: part 2

The left side of our foyer, which has been bare for the majority of our time here, has recently been shown some attention.

The wooden shelf was a garage sale find for only five bucks.
We had it hung up in our last place but since moving, it had been sitting in a closet until it dawned on me that it might work here.

The frames are also from a garage sale and the faux succulents in the tin are from Home Goods (I'm a fan of plants that I can't kill).

The straw tote that is hanging was a "dipping" project of mine.
For a DIY tutorial on how to dip something, you can visit here.

This herringbone throw blanket is a recent purchase from Target that you can find here.
I also picked up one in blue for our bedroom.
Can you ever have too many throw blankets? Not in our house!

Below the shelf is this shoe rack that came from Sailor Trading Co., a consignment furniture store in New Jersey that I have posted about here.
I originally had it in our guest house but decided to try it in here instead.
The suitcase on the bottom is from a garage sale and the smaller one on top is from Home Goods.

You can read about the right side of our foyer that I posted about a ways back here.

Minus the throw blanket, I used things that I already had to decorate this space 
which = no extra money spent 
which = happy husband!

P.S. Another thank you to Julia Ryan from Pawleys Island Posh for yesterday's feature!

Have a great day :)

  1. That is so cute! I am so jealous of all of your yard sale finds!


  2. I love this! I am really liking the added touch of the old suitcase. So cute!


  3. You are such a great bargain hunter! I love the wooden shelf and that throw as well!

  4. LOVE the walls, the wood and how monotone and soothing this space is...


I appreciate all of your comments! If you have a question, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
