Foyer- CHECK!

Well, it took a lot of painting, and possibly contributed to my going to the hospital Saturday night for too many contractions, but...

The foyer is finished!!

It has taken quite a while, but finally, the first room that you see upon entering my house no longer looks like a work in progress. The ceiling is painted, the trim is up, Jeff and Randy actually caulked the gap between each and every board on the walls, and we finished painting the walls this weekend. It looks great! Because we are now beginning construction on the adjoining room, it will no doubt be a while before the rug is on the floor and pictures are on the walls. But, when the day comes, the room is ready!

Addison is taking pictures for me to "put on the website"...





So, now we wait for someone to come and help Jeff move heavy stuff out of the future formal living room, since I really shouldn't do any lifting. The plan is... finish this room off the foyer, move the living room into place, move our bedroom back downstairs into the "green room", and set up the room we are currently in as the nursery. I just don't think I have enough pregnancy left for all this work. I've already pre-apologized for growing inevitably irritable and anxious to set up the baby's room!

It really does look a LOT bigger in the pics than in real life.. but it is a very good sized foyer! I just don't really know what to put in it, though!

Hello! I have just found this website and it has been a godsend -- especially your detailed journey with your Victorian. We are in the process of getting one ourselves and it too has the wood planks on the walls. There are holes in some of the walls - ours was built in 1900 - and the way you used the tongue and groove plansk in the foyer might be the answer to our problem. I have to ask: what type of tongue and groove boards did you use? Also - your home looks beautiful! I just hope we can accomplish what you have.
