Foyer

Hello friends,
I'm finished making the changes in my tiny foyer! I decided to go with the beadboard wallpaper. Since I love beadboard this is the way to give the room the fresh effect of beadboard without all the hassle. It took me around four hours to put this up. It was well worth the time. I think it gives this tiny space more character, and It makes the room look bigger. 




I framed six botanical prints. I bought the frames at michaels. You get two in a package for $7.99 and I had a 40% off coupon!
  
I added a splash of turquoise for a pop of color! I kept things simple. I really like the clean fresh look of the beadboard.

 
I tried to give you a close up shot of the prints. This space is only five feet wide so it's really hard to take a picture.


This is the before.

Have a great day!!

I really want to try out the beadboard wallpaper- my problem is I have two dogs that love to dirty up our walls. So still wondering if it will be durable enough/worth the effort for them :)
