Let’s Make A Statement!

8 Jul

Hey everyone! I wanted to show off some of the new things that have been happening here over the week vacation.

First things first, my entryway was a drab.. a white & tan staircase and that was basically it. I was tired of it being so plain and that’s the first place you so when walking into my place.

Welcome to that empty space where you aren’t quite sure what you are going to see when you turn that corner 😉

What I wanted to do was make this a little preview of what we like as a family and that there’s not a dungeon down there! Haha. My first inspiration piece was a wedding photo of Brian and I that we had framed from our photographer. We’ve had this gorgeous picture just sitting in a closet waiting to find a home and even though I knew where I wanted to put it, I didn’t want just that picture of us on the wall so I did a little window shopping and found this adorable wooden coat hanger.

If you know anything about Brian and I’s taste – we like dark black or dark chocolate brown wood. I also like to mix in white furniture because I think they work together really well but that’s just me 😉

So I painted the wood black and sprayed it with a gloss to make it go with the frame of the wedding picture. Then after window shopping some more my Mom and I ran into that gorgeous framed personalized piece. All because two people fell in love. It goes a little further for me because I literally had to fall and break my leg to get this guy to notice me 😉 haha!

Brian would have left it at that or done less even but I wasn’t quite finished yet. I LOVE to personalize things so I went even further.

Brian says the letters are cheesy but I absolutely love them! I also feel like it pulls in all the pieces together creating that mix matched assembled look. Now when you enter my place you know exactly where you are and hopefully the rest of our place looks as awesome as this 😉

I even like the way it looks when you are leaving.

Thank you for stopping by! We hope you come back soon.

Love Always,

    Jennifer, I really like what you have done with your entranceway. The lettering is definitely not cheesy. I think it all looks very modern and smart.

      Thank you so much! My husband just isn’t in with whats in trend 😉 Haha – I guess I shouldn’t say that, he’s just into what’s in trend with home decor. His priorities are more towards technology!
