Niche reveal

Is anything ever finished?  I don't think so but I'm going to show you my niche makeover anyway.  Let's remember the before:
Remember, it was yellow (suppose to be pale but was more like sunshine), had a shelf we had installed and had stuff put in it just so it wasn't empty.  Although I like the old scale sitting in it, I have another place for that.





Here's the after:

We repainted the entire entry a soft neutral color.  I added an old pulley that I found junkin at my own house.  There's the little chair Jennie found for me.  I added pops of red and a few other things.  I like the simpler look of it but it still seems as if something's missing.  So, I may add a couple of more things to it in the future but for right now, I like it.  Total cost: just the cost of the chair.  Everything else I already had.

What do you think?  Like it better?
I've made a lot of progress on the rest of the entry and I'm almost finished with part A which is where this niche is located.  Hopefully, I'll be sharing that with you before the end of the weekend or early next week.

  2. Very sweet - love all the treasures! Maybe you are thinking it is not quite right because it just needs a bit of fabric or textile for softness.

  3. I do like it a lot better! I love the pulley that you found around your own house. Wish I could find on laying around here! The tiny chair is so cute. I that a red book leaning against the wall?

  5. At first I thought you'd actually ripped part of the wall out (the scale of the chair threw me off).

    I think it's lovely!

    The chair with the books is absolutely adorable. :)

  11. I love everything about it! If it feels like something is missing, maybe you could find a pretty wallpaper or fabric to line the back and sides of it. I once saw on HGTV, someone use starch to "wallpaper" a wall with fabric. When your tired of it it comes right off. Regardless, I love your niche!
