Decorating Jill’s House has been a lot of fun, and she LOVES country cottage style. It was a lot of fun to add some really fun conversation pieces to her living room, and I have to say that the sliding barn door is my absolute favorite part of this room. I love the entire room, but I especially love the authentic chippy white barn wood that we got from an old Barn in central Utah. (Thanks sis for hooking me up). Yes, you heard me correct, the wood is ACTUALLY from a barn!!! Doesn’t it make it THAT much cooler now!?! Jilly’s hubby Matt built the door and installed the board and batten. He did a fantastic job, and I’m sure he won’t miss me (or my to do lists) around his home.The wood on the door was literally chipping off white paint chips, and to prevent a huge mess in Jilly’s house, we sanded down the wood and even used a wire brush to remove the lose pieces of the paint. The barn door hardware came from Crown Industrial, and they did a great job customizing the hardware to the specifications of our door. Matt did a great job adding the “Z” to the front to add that extra barn door feel. Remember the chair we had reupholstered? Look how amazing it looks! Since I love before and after photos, I am going to show you what each space looked like before Jilly’s makeover. Like I said in Jill’s House reveal part 1, the house was mostly “all neutrals” so we added a calm color pallet to jazz it up! The color pallet we chose was a calm turquoise blue, olive green, white, tan, teal and a warm grey.
Take a gander at these amazing transformations!!! As you can see, the before and after pictures demonstrate just how BIG this makeover was. It looks like a brand new home! It even feels brand new when you walk through it in person. Here is one last look of the before picture from the day I met Jill’s House. And now she looks like this!! Don’t you want to MOVE IN!?! I do.
The media cabinet came from Living Eclection, and the TV frame was built by Shawn over at Aspen Mills. Most of the accessories for this space were bought at HomeGoods here in St. George, Utah. I have an absolute LOVE for that store. I became a regular shopper, and we found some amazing accessories including pillows, photo frames, lamps, decorative trays, birdies, a canvas picture, lanterns, bird cages, glass jars…etc. A few items came from Tai Pan, Passport, and Michaels Crafts also.
My favorite pillows in the space are the beautiful tan, turquoise, and olive/lime green ones you can see on the couch below. I posted about the pillows in a previous post because they were LOVE at first sight. I carried the pillows EVERYWHERE as an inspiration piece, and to use as a color matcher for every choice along the way. As you can see, we cut them in half to better fit the couch. They were another GREAT find at HomeGoods.
One of Jilly’s main requests was to create a gallery wall to display her beautiful family. She has three adorable kiddos and a gallery wall is a great way to show off her kiddos, her faith, and her spunky life! I love it! The only frames we had to buy (since Jill was a photo frame hoarder…..just kidding Jilly….kind of) were the big collage black frames from Hobby Lobby.
Sorry about the picture overload! Hopefully you don’t mind.
