I was sooo thrilled when Cassity contacted me asking if I’d be interested in contributing a monthly guest post for her super awesome blog. Gee, I better have a little think about that one….ummm. Of course, there was really only one answer and it started with a big fat ‘Y’….YES, YES, YES please! I’m still a bit of a baby blogger and there’ll be lots of readers out there who aren’t familiar with me yet.My blog, The Painted Hive, is dedicated to beautiful and liveable interior design and decoration on a budget: thrifty home hints, DIY projects and tutorials, lots of furniture re-hab and beautiful decorating inspiration. For my first guest post on Remodelaholic I thought I’d blog about a space in my own home to give readers a chance to distinguish my style so here’s a glimpse inside my little entryway.
We painted the trim white and re-carpeted then waited for an appropriately priced and proportioned piece of furniture to come along. You see, when the front door is opened it leaves a clearance of only 30cm (12 inches) so whatever I chose needed to be accordingly narrow. Eventually, a lovely weathered cedar console showed up – perfect! I had envisioned all white against the wallpaper though the tone in this table seemed just right as is.
I must confess, I change the decor around in my home ALL THE TIME (much to hubby’s annoyance) though currently have the console adorned with clearance and thrift store finds, fresh lavendar and rosemary, some re-purposed knick-knacks and a few special pieces.
