Entryway Makeover Before Pics and Plan
Room makeovers are always adventurous, but I’m teaming up with several other talented bloggers and we are each taking it to the NEXT LEVEL as we tackle a room of our choice. Yep, over the course of the next two weeks we will each “Choose Our Own Adventure” in our own homes. As for me? I’m tackling the dreaded two story entryway…can you say scaffolding? Let me assure you that at the moment this space is anything but refreshed! Let me also inform you that two weeks is entirely not enough time to accomplish everything on my to do list…who needs sleep ?.
Note: Some of the products listed will be sponsored. I appreciate their support and love working with fabulous companies and their quality products.
Brief Back Story
Now, before I scare you off with the ugly “Before Pics” of this space, let me give you a VERY brief recap. We are a military family of six. This summer we made our thirteenth move back into a home we already own, and we plan to be here another fifteen months before the moving trucks roll up to our driveway yet again. In the last seven months we have tackled four rooms
- Our oldest daughter’s preppy bedroom
- Our French Inspired formal living room and dining room
- Most recently (and perhaps my favorite) I finished up a shared upholstered bunk bed room for my other two daughters
If you want to skip ahead you are allowed to…just like the Chose your Own Adventure books I loved as a kid
Man…get ready, because these images ain’t pretty folks. Nope, 1994 just called and they want their entryway back…You may be thinking, “Hey, the 90’s are back in fashion”. Let me stop you right there, I highly doubt that these are the design elements ready for a reboot.
But you know you want to!

Jewel, your Entry has such good bones already, but I know it will be sensational when you put your special touch on it! Excited to watch!
Is it wrong that I have anxiety for you about replacing that giant light? I mean… whatever you choose will be amazing… can’t wait to see it come together!
Can’t wait to see how you refresh this space! Really can’t wait to see how you do that malachite table DIY – I love malachite!
No! Not wrong…except your anxiety should be for my husband 🙂 Happy valentines day weekend? LOL
Thanks! I have spoonflower as my secret weapon 🙂
Thanks Jennifer! Now I’m trying to make final design choices, like the color of white in my Entry. Not an easy task BTW!
What a great space to use your magic on Jewel! I can’t wait to see it transform.
Thanks so much Kathy!
