Entry Progress

My hydrangeas are officially blooming happily so I picked these and brought them in to brighten up our entryway.  I believe this one is called Blushing Bride.  It starts out white like the bloom in the lower center then develops a slight pink tint.

We've made a lot of progress on the entry. My husband did an incredible job putting up the wainscotting.  This is actually paneling and not the full boards.  Paneling was just easier for us to transport in our smaller cars and to work with.

It's amazing what a big difference this makes here.  I'm glad I did the entire wall.  We're still playing with the hooks and there are going to be changes to our original plan.  We also still have moulding and painting to do but I love the way it looks already.

To refresh your memory, this is what we started with. 
(This is an older picture.  It was actually painted grey like the rest of our living room since this picture was taken.)

Hope to be closer to finishing by the end of this week. 

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Those hydrangea blooms are so pretty and delicate. I like the beadboard panel in your front entry and the old sewing machine stand makes a great table. Blessings, Pamela
