My front entry

klingerOctober 28, 2008

When we moved into our new home the front entry had grungy lino. We ripped it all up and I laid some china multi slate. The colors look so earthy. It's the same as Janie chose for her fireplace. I made a mosaic for the centre of the front entry , I had a different vision in my mind then when I began, so I like this okay but think I should have perservered and started again with my original vision. Any how I do love the slate,

Oh, KLINGER: What a beautiful job you did. Quite an ambitious project, cuz I know how meticulous a job like that has to be to avoid tripping on entry. I'd have it all over the place w/unlevel stuff. This is very pretty.

Glad you all liked it.Everyone who comes over says they like it. But, I really did want to do a celtic knot and I realize now that I should have started over and done one. We've been doing so many projects I just wanted to get it finished. I guess this is a life lesson for me lol, not to be in such a rush to finish things that I loose sight of the original vision. Any how the floor looks fine all in all, just not what I'd had in my mind when I started it.

Regardless, it is very nice.
I tend to do the same, get in a hurry and loose the vision.

Klinger, What a great entry, even if it wasn't what you had in mind. Love those colors and the central medallion. I admire you taking on such a huge project especially with regard to the leveling!! It's awesome, enjoy all of the complements you will be getting.
