Updating the Entryway - Pukey Peach BE GONE!

It's often hard to appreciate how far your house has come when the first impression you get when you walk in is "ugh...what OOPs shelf did they pick THIS color up from?" Or maybe they just mixed the leftovers of other paint to get what I affectionately refer to as "Pukey Peach." It has a nice ring to it right?

If the 15+ stairs walking up to our house were not enough, about about 7 more?

There was also this nice peel and stick vinyl flooring at the bottom of the entryway. I had diluted myself into thinking that it was actual cool mid century hex tiles, but sadly no.

Also some nice painted (multiple drippy layers) metal louvered doors.

This entry way was not even really on our radar for renovation as are working on several other areas of the house. However, as the kitchen pass-throughs started to take shape...

...and Micheal did this one day

But check out those hardwood floors underneath! Some water damage we'll need to address, but yippee!!

It just morphed into a full entryway project. And I'm truly very excited about it. The difference even from Pukey Peach to primer is amazing.

You can see a little sneak preview of the paint scheme on the corner. We're planning to do the entry in a medium gray and the living room/hallway in a light gray.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! We're trying to capitalize on the long weekend, so I'd better get back to doing some work rather than sitting on my butt on the sofa talking to you all!

OH! Also, if you haven't followed us on instagram yet, we started a F2F account to try and motivate us to document our progress more. Follow us at foreclosure2fabulous - enjoy!
