Entry Evolution: Room by Room Summer Series Week One

Summer is in full swing around our house and I think I’m finally getting into a groove. It is a good thing too, because my friend Amy from My Life From Home is hosting a new Room By Room Summer Series that I’m super excited to be joining. Each week, bloggers will share a space in their home and talk about what they’ve done, would like to do, or tips decorating for that area. Our first week is all about the entry of the home. Check out our Farmhouse Entry Evolution!

Farmhouse Entry Evolution

If you are new to the blog, WELCOME!

My name is Erin and I live with my handy husband and two crazy kids in the middle of nowhere, aka, the country.  We’ve been in our fixer upper for a little over a year now and it is slowly, but surely becoming our home. Let’s step inside!

Last year, I posted a tour of before photos of The Country House, which included this pic below of our living room and front door entrance. BLAH! It really needed some help, so with a little paint and new flooring, we were able to give it a fresh new look.

TA-DA! Painting the trim and doors white really brightened the space up! Also, back in February my husband, Chris, redid all of the floors in our home. {Learn more about our floors here.} Adding some fun decorative and functional pieces to the space helped define it as more of a separate area from our living room.

The black console table was a piece we scored years ago on Craigslist. On top of the table are a few decor items we love. The vintage typewriter belonged to my maternal grandmother and the white milk glass piece was my paternal grandmother’s. Underneath, we placed two storage ottomans from Ikea which hold shoes and also serve as video gaming stools for the kids.

The big ol’ cable spool clock was something that I whipped up a few years ago and a piece we still love to this day. Even though it doesn’t function as a proper clock, it is always a conversation piece when people come to visit.

The boxwood wreath on our coat closet gets moved back and forth from the front door during inclement weather. I just love green wreaths and how they can dress up a space.

It may look like this space is finished (or maybe not), but we still have a few changes we would eventually like to make.

Here’s what we are thinking:

  • Paint Doorbell Box.
  • Replace almond outlet/switchplate/thermostat.
  • Paint the wall, although we have yet to decide on a color.

With my tendencies to change things up on a whim, who knows how this space will look when it is finished! Or if it ever will be finished. *WINK*What do you think of our entry? I’ll be back next week with another room in our summer series: THE KITCHEN. Make sure to come back and check it out. In the meantime, you won’t want to miss these fun and creative entrys below!

    Painting the trim made a huge difference! I love that the typewriter and milk glass are family heirlooms – pieces with stories & connections to us are the best!
