Remodeled Entryway Reveal! {with Video}

Today’s my birthday, and what better way to celebrate than by showing you our remodeled entryway!

      Can I get a Yahoo?!

It took 4 months from start to finish, which isn’t excessively long as remodels go, but it felt like forever, which is always the case when you are remodeling any room.

I’ve got lots of photos to share but I also put together a fun little video that shows the 4 month remodel process condensed into about 2 minutes.  It starts with photos of the space when we moved in, and includes the mini-makeover I gave it right after we moved into our house.

After the video, there are lots of photos of all the changes to the room now.

Now, here are the details!

I really like like the dictionary pages on the walls from the first mini-makeover, but the entryway connects to our kitchen, and it just didn’t flow well together.  The new painted pallet wood walls tie in much better with the kitchen and rest of the house.

The chalkboard wall stayed the same, but the new flooring over the old concrete floor is a huge improvement!

An old ladder makes a great shelf for seasonal gear in a farmhouse entryway - This old ladder looked so awesome in our shed-turned-guestroom, but I took it out when my son moved into the guest room.  It’s been patiently waiting to be used again.

Right now, I’m using it to hold seasonal winter gear, but it’ll be fun to change up the decor on the rungs through the year.

I also replicated the look of the rustic chalkboard frame, but since the wall is already a chalkboard, I didn’t need to make one to fit behind the frame – it’s just hanging on the wall, with a mason jar filled with baby’s breath hanging from it.

Next to the chalkboard wall is a wall that has two windows and the front door.

The drop cloth curtains are hanging in the windows, with my stenciled seed store sign hanging above one of them.

UPDATEWe added wood shutters to the windows after the remodel was finished.

See them HERE

Underneath the window is an antique cabinet that my husband I I bought at a yard sale shortly after we got married.

I’ve always used it in my kitchen, but I’m using it as a plant stand now.

Flanking the front door are 2 cast iron lanterns that I used in my outdoor spaces tour last summer.

Eventually, I’d like to get wall mount lights like this one  (affiliate link), but I love how these look in the meantime.

The chippy little stool is an auction win.  My hands are usually full when I come in the door, so it will make a great drop spot for my purse, or a bag of groceries.

In the corner I have a long cast iron hook “thing”.  I have no idea what it’s called, but I bought it a long time ago at a farm supply shop, and am using it to hold some of the dozens of hats my husband has.

This corner of the room has our dog food in a bin, the cat food in an enamelware pot, and food and water bowls on the floor.

I moved the pallet wood cat perch beneath the window, so they can look outdoors.

On the connecting wall I hung one of my old windows, with a basket full of lavender.

Beneath the window is the antique sewing stand I upcycled into an accent table.

Rounding the corner is my beloved barn door cabinet my husband built into the wall, and my hanging scale clock.  I didn’t get a good photo of it, but beneath the cabinet is a built in bench with storage.  We’re keeping tools inside it that we use frequently.

My sliding barn door is between the entryway and kitchen.

The kitchen side is the really pretty side.

The entryway side is usually open, but it looks like this closed.

I would love to hang something on it, but since it slides very close to the kitchen side of the wall, I can’t do that.
