Happy happy joy joy! A punch of sunny yellow tones for the darkest corner in the house. Plus, my Feng-Shui book says that a yellow / golden entryway is essential for the well-being of one's home.
I had the budget of a worker ant, but plenty of time and enthusiasm. I drew the retro pattern on the walls myself, mixed my colors by hand and spent three week-ends painting the faux wallpaper.
Good thing that the entryway is just a small nook, as you can see below:
What about the furniture? I reached deeply into my zero budget and came up with the lovely IKEA hat rack and hooks, that I already had. I painted them too, added the cheapest floor lamp I could find - about 9 euros (because the overhead light doesn't work) and called it a day.
After almost a year, I found in a warehouse the perfect stool. Retro organic shape in edible colors: my love for Kubrick's film sets has been satisfied!
And last but not least, the essentials: shoe cloths, shoe shine, dust brush.
Plus a little something for the pet friendly home: the pet hair roller & brush. Yay!
