Entryway Here I Come...

OK, I'm really pushing my man to release some moolah so I can decorate. My entryway has driven me crazy since move-in four years ago. I think it's time that something got done. Right? Here's what I want to do.
Replace the chandelier,

tile my art niche,

replace my front door,

get some art,


Of course, this is all best case scenario. But anything would be better than what I have now. Which is this:


I'm sorry. Did I blind you with the sparseness? I'll post pictures once I get finished. I know I always promise that and never deliver, but this time I mean it! Speaking of...
This is the bookcase that we got from Wisteria.


Here are the lamps.


Small table.


I rearranged my ledge in my bathroom.



And the ledge above the stairs.


Here's what I sewed while watching Miss Pettigrew-the back pillows for my oldest's bed.


And another project I finally finished-a valance for my oldest's room.


Shwew. I didn't realize how behind I was in taking pictures. Or how much I'd done around the house. Go me! I knew I hadn't been lazy this summer.

You have such an eye for that stuff. It's amazing how much of you is reflected through your home. It's really beautiful.

I just happened onto your blog, I love your valance, did you use a pattern or just make it up. I want one.

I just made it up. I measured the width of the rod and length of the window. Sewed a channel and gathered it with the ribbon after hanging. Pretty easy.
