Makeover Monday – Entry Way

December 21, 2015

Now that J and I are settling into our new digs, I wanted to share our progress with you! Every Monday I will share updates on a new room/space, and show how we’ve redone it and made it our own.  As a first time homeowner, I had no real idea of just what we had gotten ourselves into… but luckily my husband and mom are pros at knowing the right people and getting the job done, so I’m very thankful for everything we’ve accomplished in this short amount of time.  To kick off our first Makeover Monday, I figured I’d start with our entry way (seems fitting right?).

First and foremost, I knew I needed to swap out this guy:


… to really set the tone of our home.

The hard part was figuring out what to replace him with.  Luckily, I came across 1-800Lighting and my prayers were answered! This family owned and operated company has been in the business for over 90 years (and it’s no wonder) – their selection was amazing, shipping was fast, and the product was so easy to assemble and install!



Our home has very traditional bones, so I wanted to spice up the space with this modern Flux 30 Chandelier from 1-800Lighting.  Every time I look at it, I can’t help but smile – it’s so fun and really updates our staircase.


While we are still trying to track down the perfect mirror and entry way table, but in the meantime am using an old desk and extra mirror as the anchor for our entry space.  Throw a few framed photos and a beautiful orchid and you’re good to go!



My next item on the entry way to-do list is to find a navy runner to cover the stairs in – has anyone installed one themselves or have any suggestions?


 Financial compensation was not received for this post. While the Flux 30 Chandelier was gifted from 1-800Lighting, all opinions expressed here are my own.

    That really looks lovely! Wonderful choice in making the statement you were looking for.
    Eddie’s Carpets in Campbell can help you out with the stair runner. They can take any carpet you choose, bind the edges and install it for you. 1-408-371-7585. Ask for Rudy, he is one of the owners. I would bring in a couple pictures of your staircase and some measurements of the stairs, the landing, and overall length. This will help you in your selection but they will come out prior to you ordering and figure out the best layout and final dimensions.
    Looking forward to next Monday’s post?
