I’ve gotten a lot of positive response to my posts on working with what you have—which makes me really happy. After all, aren’t we all working around one thing or another to find a pretty solution that we can live with?
Since we had no walls in our foyer, I created this “entry” along a narrow front hallway in our last house by using items I already had--a rounded console table, a flea market mirror and a thrifted lamp. Photo from Better Homes & Gardens.
I have a couple more of these posts planned and an opportunity for you to share your own solutions soon. But, in the meantime, if there are “working with what you have” topics you’d like for me to cover, I’d like to hear about them. I’m hoping to feature problems that aren’t too specific to one home so that more readers will benefit. Feel free to share your ideas in the comments, or email me. Although it might not be possible for me to reply to each individual dilemma, I’ll definitely let you know if yours is chosen for a future post.
