{Before & After} Entrance Hall, take 2

You guys are awesome!! I really appreciate your opinions on the monogram yesterday! It's got me fired up to make some serious progress in her room makeover this weekend. I got a little sidetracked on the Entrance Hall last weekend.

If you've been reading Hi Sugarplum! for awhile, this is deja vu. I did a Before & After Reveal on my Entrance Hall here, but it still didn't feel quite finished.

Too cold and bare for my overdone taste.

So first I brought the candle sticks back in and Pizz-Azzed them with jute:

Then I found this big, yummy plant and loved the color it brought to the space:

Nice pot. I haven't been able to find anything to put it in that's what she said ....which might be because I don't know what I'm looking for yet. So I cheaped cheated and grabbed this shelf liner and my glue gun:

(I had every intention of using this on actual shelves, but that was 9 months ago...so I think it's fair game for another project at this point.)

A little nip, tuck and glue later...I had the Joan Rivers of fake pots:

(I don't intend for this to be a long-term fix, which means it will be.)

I think it's not too bad (how's that for a glowing review?!)...and I like the texture and pattern, especially against the zebra print.

Here is my warmer, completed Entrance Hall now:

Here's a little time lapse of the makeover:

I love all the light my DIY mirror reflects:

Read about the process of painting my doors black here, and see all the rugs I considered here:

The door on the left leads to my pink coat closet:

I think I'm ready to move on from this room now...what do you think? Have a great weekend loves!

  13. What a clever idea with the shelf liner. I may try this with all my mismatched pots I bring in for the winter. Thanks for the inspiration.

  14. I love the balck doors - it makes such a difference! And the zebra print helps it not be so overpowering - really balances it against all the other light paint. The wrap on the plants also looks great - blends well with the rug. And such a clever idea! Nice job on everything!! Now you can come do my house. ;)

  16. Okay, #1 I can't believe the shelf liner. Fab idea! Works well with everything in the space.

    And #2 - love the black doors. I once did an entire home - interior doors, baseboards, & stair railing with black. (Swore I'd never do black again!) Took 4-5 coats!

    Would love for you to stop by this weekend and link up to Passion for Paint!
