Entryway Makeover Reveal!!

Oct 8th, 2012

Ok peeps, first of all, I hope you had a great weekend. I have been sicker than a dog. I have one. bad. cough. Yuck! I heard that whooping cough is going around in Utah, and I hope I don’t have it. I Googled it {BAD IDEA}. Now, I’ve got myself diagnosed with all sorts of BAAAAD viruses. The good thing is that I got to hang in my jammies all weekend. Ok, ok, I hang in my jammies 75% of my life anyway, but who’s keeping track anyway?
 
If you missed the drama about the floor, you missed a tear-jerking story. But, the good news is that IT’S DONE!! I am very proud of how this space turned out. Just to be clear, this space is not in my house {although I wish it was!}. My friend Lexee asked for help in her entryway, and I’m excited to share the pictures with you today!!
 
Without further adieu, check it out!

entryway decor
Like a lot of you out there, Lexee had great ideas, but pulling them all together was a challenge. Her entryway had amazing potential and had 15-foot vaulted ceilings! The first goal was to accentuate the tall ceilings, and to do so, we installed molding {ahem, when I say WE I mean my amazing hubby ? Dan ?}. Plus we added a KILLER chandelier to the space. It definitely draws your eye up and adds texture and interest to these MEGA-vaulted ceilings. Lexee scored this amazing chandelier at a local lighting store called Wilkinson’s for 50% off!!

Although Lexee’s entryway table wasn’t all that unfortunate looking, we needed something bigger in scale for the space. I found this amazing black table at HomeGoods in Las Vegas, and I knew it was the one the moment I set eyes on her {It was love at first sight.} The legs are soooo unique and we switched out the knobs for some girly crystals from Lowes.
 
The sconces were too modern for my taste, so we switched them out for these amazing blown glass sconces from West Elm. We reused Lexee’s Pier 1 mirror by just hanging it vertically instead of horizontally.

Accessorizing is definitely the fun part of the process, and I bought most of the decor at the local Tai Pan store here in St. George.  {Breakdown of where accessories came from: the teal vases were from Tai Pan, the picture frame was from Tai Pan, the coral colored floral sprays came from Pier 1, the books came from D.I., the white candle was from Target, the white foot stools were also from Target, and the owls were from Kohls.}.
I got your back in case you wanted to know. Smile

The painted rug on the floor definitely creates that WOW factor I was hoping for, and pictures just don’t do it justice. I created the rug with a Stencil donated from Royal Design Studios called Contempo Trellis. Yes, I had to paint it TWICE, and lots of tears were shed, but I’m over it now….ALMOST.

I think I could sleep in this space and stare up at the chandelier for forever. chandelier 1stenciled entryway decorating accessories
I’m definitely thrilled with how this space turned out! I hope you like it too!
Wish me luck on getting over my chronic cough too. It’s definitely a doozy. Any tips or tricks are definitely welcome.
