Farmhouse Foyer

I decided to try to make our foyer a little more "farmhouse-y".

( i love how we get to make up words in blogland )

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So I cleared off the little bench I already had there and
just added four simple items that gave me that 
farmhouse feeling.


For the wall, I removed an old picture from a frame,
beat up the frame a little bit (great for stress relief), and added a wreath.
I attached the wreath with a strip of corrugated cardboard
and some twine all fancy, schmancy like!

( love how this turned out )


I also added a plate and platter that I've had forever.


And that's it!
Simple, quick, and easy.


Aren't little areas like this fun to redecorate?
It doesn't take a whole lot of stuff or a whole lot of time.


I'm so glad you stopped by ~ every visit and comment
 is truly appreciated!!
