I recently had this vintage lantern fixture (found at the flea market) installed in our entryway. We also added the ceiling medallion. I hope to get a brass door plate for the door someday too. (The black things hanging down on the front porch are a hairy spider Halloween decoration. Although I’m trying to downsize my collection of decorations that were purchased at Walgreen’s or somewhere similar, the boys would freak out if I got rid of that spider!).
With the new paint color, the light fixture, painting the door black, and some re-accessorizing, the difference is really starting to show…
Above is the view as you enter the front door. The rug is an Uzbek Caucasian gazni wool found at the Santa Fe flea market a few years ago. This is also a great flea market if you’re ever in the Santa Fe area! Below is the before shot of the light fixture:
This is the old chandelier but with the new paint.
Old paint. No more baby gates!
This vignette is still a work in progress. The fabric on the chair is vintage from Repro Depot (I just visited the site and it is currently closed! They still sell patterns but no more fabric). The chair was a find I refinished a few years ago. The table is Fenton MacLaren which I bought unfinished and painted. The lamp is HomeGoods and the print is an antique lithograph in an antique frame. The stack of frames under the table is actually a work in progress. I am hoping to frame a lot of family photos and hang them on the blank wall going up the stairs. I have been collecting antique and vintage frames for a few years now preparing for it–hopefully I can get it done soon!
