Entryway Makeover

Hey y’all…we hope you had a wonderful Spring weekend. We know lots of you woke up to snow this morning…whomp whomp. Our temps dropped yesterday too – just no snow. It is nice to know that pretty, sunny and warmer days are on the horizon.

Remember a couple of weeks ago we shared with you that we were working on a clients home? We painted a console table and gave “ME’s” entryway a makeover. You can see that painted console and makeover HERE.

Today we are sharing the rest of this entryway makeover. As we stated before, ME has a beautiful home and decor. She just wanted to change her style in her new home – going from traditional to more of a farmhouse/industrial style.

As you enter her front door, this beautiful shelving unit is on the right side wall. We like to start with a clean slate, so we removed all of this…

…and added this!

We used some of ME’s decor items and items that we purchased for her space.

We just love how it turned out!

She already had these awesome vintage fans that used to be her grandfather’s and we knew we had to incorporate them into the decor. We had also found this driftwood orb at HomeGoods that totally fit the style we were going for.

Y’all know how much we love decorating with books and moss, which helped us bring in some texture and color.

We also found this architectural piece from a local antique store and loved it’s rustic charm, as well as mixing it with this industrial basket.

Don’t you just love this railroad pin?

Sometimes shelves can seem daunting to style, as if you need to fill the entire space. But sometimes all you need is a great rustic wooden box with a little pop of color 🙂

ME also had these vintage tennis rackets that we wanted to incorporate, but weren’t 100% sure what to do with them. When we saw that the wall to the right of the shelving unit was a little bare, we decided to hang the rackets and love the result.

We used an old cigar box that ME had in her collection and just by opening it up we were able to use it as a rustic backdrop. And of course  we had to feature her copies of Gone With the Wind.

By adding a bit of blue and green color, it lightens the space.

On the other side of the door there is this small space. We only changed it a little bit.

ME already had these black and white prints, which we felt fit into the style she was going for. It really is so important to take a look at what you already have so that you can help your overall budget when re-decorating a space. She also had the glass demijohn jug we placed on the table, which she purchased from Decor Steals and we loved it.

We had so much fun decorating this entryway…and more importantly meeting our client, ME.

Have you done any decorating lately? We’d love to hear about it!

Until tomorrow…

XO~Vicki and Jenn

    Looks fantastic! The entryway is so important and sometimes (as in our house) it can be a real challenge. I like the accessories you’ve chosen.

    I did a gallery wall at the top of the stairs using things from the closets recently. It’s making me smile all the time and draws people up the stairs. 🙂
