Entryway Progress

One more day till the weekend! I don't know about you, but I have to make a countdown each week. It helps keep me motivated and moving toward a goal. I am looking forward to finishing up the painting in the entryway this weekend.

I have made a little progress. The wainscoting has been primed, sanded and one coat of paint!

I also bought this beauty:
A Martha Stewart Special from Home Depot.

I found this fabric on Hawthorne Threads for the bench seat cushion:

I have had such a hard time finding a rug for the entryway because it has weird dimensions. So I am thinking of ordering these carpet tiles from FLOR. I like the herringbone pattern in them and I can also lay them in parquet style for a little more of a weave.

The dimensions are perfect and I can always add more tiles if needed. I also love that these tiles can endure "HEAVY" traffic. This is the meeting and entering place of our home. Where we track in dirt, grass....etc. I need a rug to be quite durable!

So that is where I am at. I am  hoping to have all of the painting done this weekend so I can share my color choice with all of you on Monday.

P.S. I forgot to mention that yesterday was my 100th post! I have enjoyed writing each and every post for all  of you lovelies! Thanks for reading and supporting Eat.Sleep.Decorate!
