Show Us Where You Live Friday

So this week Kelly has us showing off our entryways/foyer. We don't really have a big enough area to call it a foyer, but I do happen to have pictures so here goes.

First things first...the front door. When we moved after going to Lowe's and Home Depot for a million different things we came across this really nice look door handle. It didn't really work with the old door, but Michael was sure he could fix it will filler or puddy or whatever. Okay needless to say it was a disaster and lead to racing to Lowe's before they closed or Michael would be sleeping on the floor of our living room because there was no lock on the door.

Here's the end result...new door and nice new knob.



Close up...it's nice, but it wasn't worth all the trouble.



Right when you come in the door you see our stairs. We ripped out the old carpet and had new Berber carpet put it. Michael also painted all the molding white.


This is an old picture, but I was lazy and didn't want to take a new one. The only thing that's different is there is a baby gate at the bottom of the stairs and the decorations on the bench have now been replaced with a shoebox full of Owen's undies in case he has an accident I don't have to run upstairs to get a new pair...did I mention I was lazy?

Here is our entryway closet. I love how big it is. Our old condo had such a small closet so this was a nice surprise. It holds all our coats, the vacuums, extra purses and a bunch of other random things that I have no clue where else to put them.


Michael put all new 6 panel doors throughout our house. It was a lot of work, but it really makes the house look nice and new.
Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, you guys have done a great job remodeling. Everything looks so nice and YES the six panel doors make a HUGE difference. That was one of the first things we did when we moved into our house.
