When you think about decorating your home or your cottage, most people don’t think much about the front hall, yet, the front hall is the first impression when someone enters the house.
For the past two years, every time I walked in the cottage door, my first impression was, I wonder when this thing is going to fall down on my head.
Standing on the deck with the door open, the entrance to the cottage seemed like a scary place to walk into.
Lets take a look back at what it was like:
The old window was taken down along with the walls. The old floor was pulled up. The wiring was re-done. The walls were properly insulated and new dry wall was put up. The door was stripped and repainted. Fresh paint was put on the walls and trim.
A new pocket-light was put in. Followed by a new floor. And last but not least, the picture I bought for the cottage the first week we bought it was finally hung.
Now when you open the front door, it is no longer a scary place to enter, instead, it is welcoming to come in.
