The house retrospective: Day 11. The Foyer
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/the-new-school/
Sorry. Another easy one today. I know I’ve also been silent the past couple of days. We had a lot of guest action here the past several days, and I needed a bit of recovery time. Thanksgiving was a lot of fun, but a bit exhausting too!
Anyway, here it is: the Foyer, or as we sometimes like to call it, the Lobby!
The foyer is one of the reasons we fell in love (or in serious like) with this house. The floor-to-ceiling woodwork is all original, and there is a wood burning fireplace next to the little closet under the stairs. And original wood floors.
Here is the foyer the day we took possession.
Oh, and here is a closeup of that creepy Snow White mirror you can see in the picture. We still have this mirror, but now it’s hanging on the inside of the door in the closet under the stairs.
And here is the fireplace after I tossed the weird fake-dried flower arrangement.
And here is a picture of the scary-looking candelabra that was over the fireplace, and which is now over the fireplace in the den (because Kevin loves it).
Like the livingroom, we had to refinish the floors in the foyer because the tape that had held the rug in place was so stuck to the floor it could not be removed, in spite of hours and hours trying to get it off.
And here is a shot of the foyer the day we moved in. Yes, we do have too much stuff!
And here it is today. Literally, today! There is really nothing left to do in this room, except for some wood cleaning/polishing.
And finally, a view from the foyer into the living room showing our columns (and yes, this was at Christmas). It’s a little weird living in a house with columns inside…
