My Front Room Reveal!

Whew! It’s finally time to share my front room reveal, and I couldn’t be happier to be done with it! I’m so ready to move on to another room; this one has been quite a bit slower than I anticipated. This is what it looked like before we moved in…

Before

…and this is what it looks like now.

As you can see, we put a lot of work into it before we ever started decorating it. My husband actually put in the new vinyl flooring, and my awesome family painted the walls this very light gray color while we still lived in Delaware.

Most of what you see, you have probably already seen if you’ve been following along, because I have been blogging about each individual project along the way. I have made just a few changes here and there.

Starting with my entertainment center, per some of the suggestions you, the readers, made (thank you for them!), I cleaned up the TV cords a little bit, and pared down the décor up top.

I also decided to use both of my chairs (see how I reupholstered them here), and figured out where to place them.

If you remember, I gave this mirror in my entryway a quick, $5 makeover, by far the easiest project in the room.

We use this IKEA piece with baskets for storage; with such a small space, we’re always looking for ways to add storage. I got the 3 piece accent mirrors for less than $10 at Bargain Hunt. If you’re local, they just opened up a new store in the Halls area that’s supposed to be great. The terrarium and the little orange flower candle were sweet gifts from my sister and sis-in-law-to-be.

The only thing I changed in this corner with the air plant display was adding a floor lamp for extra lighting, also much needed in our dark little trailer. I spruced it up a bit with a little bit of sparkly trim from Hobby Lobby using this pretty DIY tutorial from Julie at Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss.

For this long, open wall, I filled it up with some eclectic pieces, graphic art with our family dancin’ song, and gallery style pictures attached with washi tape. I highly recommend using washi tape for your next gallery wall; so quick and easy, and there are so many cute washi tape prints. You can read more about that here.

So, that’s a wrap! I’ve always known my style was eclectic, but looking back at the pictures, I realize just how eclectic it is.  I wasn’t even sure where I was going or how it would end up when I started. But in spite of me, I think it all flows together rather nicely.

Shoot me a message if you have any questions about anything in particular that you see here, and I’ll be happy to fill you in. I’ll leave you with a few more shots of the space, and as always, let me know what you think!

  1. Love it, it looks so inviting! You’ve definitely made great use of the space, so smart using that little cube kind of as a side table and to mark off the entryway. And I still marvel at how you stenciled that entertainment center yourself–it came out fantastic. Job well done! Now maybe you’ll get a chance to actually have a set here and relax???

  3. Amazing, as always! And to think that you started with a blank palette. Wow. I wish I had your talent for making so many different parts cohesive. Visually, it’s as equally stimulating as it is calming. My favorite is the entertainment center with its stenciled design, colorful books and sentimental curiosities. 🙂

  4. I don’t know how I missed this but I’m blown away tonight! You have a creative gene that is totally missing from me. 🙂 I love the eclectic look ~ that’s my style! Wonderful job and I’ve gotta go back and see how you did so much of it.
