|Unfortunately I don't have a wide angle lens on this camera, but my ceiling soars another 6 feet above the this shot.|
I am very comfortable on ladders (years ago I was a rock climbing instructor--if you can believe that...) so heights do not scare me. It is the fall off the ladder that scares me. I know myself, and I am a reacher. When I am painting a room, I tend to get lazy. I see how far I can stretch with my roller before I move my ladder. At 21 feet, I don't think reaching is a good idea. So I have made the calls and I have hired a painter. Now that the hard part is taken care of, let me show you my space.....
|Oh wow that this is a terrible picture of my cat's rear end! I am sooooo sorry! It is also the only picture showing my upstairs hall which is open to my foyer.|
|As a side note, MooMoo my cat thinks she should be in all my pictures, if I take out my camera, she starts prancing around!|
Here is my amazing painter Todd Glasgow painting my foyer...
|Here is a better look at the height of this room.|
We painted the walls Behr's Wheat Bread, but had the paint custom matched and used Benjamin Moore paint. I had the ceiling painted in Benjamin Moore's Cloud Cover.
So where should I start with this room, well....If I had a million dollars....(....I'd buy you furniture for your house---at least according to the Barenaked Ladies song).....still singing to myself. Okay let me get back on track, over the next week, I will share with you a couple foyers that are inspiring this makeover, and unlike C's room which is taking forever, I will reveal my new and much improved foyer. As always my budget is tight. I have about $1250 to spend on this remodel, and that includes the painter! I will be moving a couple of pieces in from other rooms, and I will be bringing back in a couple of pieces.
