Hey all! Alright, we are down to our last area of the 70’s ranch makeover! So let’s start at the beginning. If you recall the house originally had a funny little entry. It was boxed in with an odd partial wall, and it had dark stone tile that made the space look even smaller. It was clear we would need to make some changes to this awkward entry. As you might have seen in previous posts, (here) we decided to take out the random wall arch, and create an open entry. We also 86’d the tile. The tile was closing it off, and we wanted the whole area to be open and cohesive. If you have been reading along, you know that we decided to cover up all the existing wallpaper with faux shiplap. This was a HUGE improvement, and once we coupled that with new laminate flooring we had a whole new space! We added a subtle light fixture, and black paint to the door and were banging on all cylinders! So now for the fun part. Drum roll please…TA-DA! Here it is, in all of it’s staged glory! Isn’t it so much more inviting!?
The entry is visible from all areas of the open concept plan, so we wanted to keep it simple. It needed to clearly be it’s own space, but still naturally flow with the rest of the home.
My friend Katie (Addicted 2 DIY) designed and built this entry table specifically for this entry and we LOVE it. It hands down MAKES this entry area. BONUS: Stay tuned because tomorrow we are publishing build plans so that you can make your own! Well, that’s a wrap on this 70’s style ranch! I will slowly be publishing a few more posts regarding some of the projects, but overall we are done with reveals! Thanks so much for following along! Next endeavor? The workshop is in full swing and I can’t wait to start showing you!
