The walls of our front entry and stairway were clad in knotty pine when we moved in. We weren’t fans, to say the least. I wrote about priming the wood back in August of 2007, but I realized recently that I neglected to follow up with the finished look. Our baby gates went up this weekend, but I took photos before I installed them.
The paint color is Campground by Behr, and the fabric on the door and window was from IKEA, as was the little pink rug. I love the beautiful doorknob on the door to the living room, and I’m pretty fond of the vintage paper punch we use as a doorstop.
And here, a lovely shot of just how crowded this little area gets when you actually open the front door. Now imagine a baby gate on the bottom stair that swings out into the space. Nice.
