Home Tour – Foyer Reveal

I finally think our foyer is almost complete but I’ve been so excited to share it with you, here it goes.

Pineapple foyer before and after

penny cabinet diy for the pineapple foyer reveal When we moved into the house the foyer was very plain, neutral walls, not a huge space, but a definite division because of the tile floor. The first thing I did was paint the wall green and hand-stenciled the pineapples on the walls.

You can read all about the hand-stenciled pineapples walls, here. I go into detail on the colors used and there’s a FREE DOWNLOAD for the pineapple stencil as well.

Next it was onto the cabinet. I re-purposed a black cabinet we had purchased a few years ago from target. The piece was not fitting into the house anywhere else, but it was a good size for the foyer, the harsh black just did not work. I spray painted the piece bronze then painted the top, and top of both shelves in chalkboard paint. (I’m really excited to use it for holiday decorating :-) ) Then I used gorilla glue, and glued almost 1000 pennies into the inset part of the sides. It’s $2.50 per square foot. I love how the multiple tones of copper reflect and add to the effect of the metallic pineapples. If you try this, just be careful of the gorilla glue on your fingers, it takes forever to come off. Also, make sure you measure the number of pennies that will go across before you place your first row. You’ll be able to see how much extra space you have so you can center the row and avoid a huge gap on one side.

I finished off the entrance with a small wreath, pineapple art, wedding photos, and gorgeous bronze statue of a dog and turtle my mother gave me as a wedding gift. (Check out her Canine Collectibles Store – A Dog’s Tale Collectibles, some of the pieces are absolutely incredible!)

So here’s the final result. Hope you like it.
