Front Entryway Staircase Reveal!

I have been meaning to post this forever…. and tonight seems like the best time.  We are finally finished with the entryway and staircase!  It took us over 2 months to complete the ginormous project!  DIY is not for the faint of heart, especially when you have 4 kids who you also homeschool…..  Yikes!! 
Below are before and after photos of the stairs and some of the entryway…. but unfortunately I took very few before photos of the doors and walls.  I absolutely love the board and batten on the walls and all the new craftsman style door trim.  It adds such character!  And speaking of character, the new coat hooks are very vintage, and I love the toile curtain to hide the shoe storage by the front door.  I think I’ve had that fabric for over 3 years, and have wanted to implement that idea for-ev-ah!  So glad I got around to it.  I totally made that freestyle, and somehow it worked…..  Ha!  Lots of imperfections, but I kept thinking I am not going for perfection here… just pretty.
Okay, so NOW here are the photos… enjoy!

These are two doorways with the old builder’s trim.  Paint color swatches on wall… I ended up liking NONE of them. LOL!
