For the past couple months I settled on using a $20 dresser as a placeholder but I knew it wasn't permanent.
The height of the old mid century modern piece was much too low. I never took any pictures of the space like this but imagine the typical MCM dresser and that was about it! I knew I wanted a change but my only problem was I couldn't find anything I loved. Sure, some things on craigslist would've worked but nothing caught my eye. Unusual, I know.
Then I saw this piece on West Elm and I immediately loved it.
It's weird, but it's been an extremely long time since I've bought a new piece of furniture that wasn't thrifted or bought off of craigslist. I waited for it to go on major sale and pulled the trigger.
The styling of this piece is rough but it'll do for now. I'm most excited about the "painting" I did. It was another total copycat DIY from what I'm sure is a pricier piece! I've had this image pinned for so long and was certain I wanted to recreate it for this exact spot. I am pleased it turned out exactly as I envisioned.
All I did was use a roll of paper that we already had at home and added the black circles and splatters with acrylic paint. I framed it using a poster frame that I sprayed gold. The whole project took less than an hour and makes a big impact!
The rest of the space is filled with most things we already had. However, the small mirror was a garage sale find earlier this season and the tree was a Pier 1 find. I've had the capiz shell light forever, or so it seems, and I repurposed an old trashcan [that I found in the trash!] as an umbrella stand years ago.
Things won't stay like this forever, but I'm really liking the way it's finally coming along.
I've been smitten with that console table for so long, but I just don't have any where to put it in my house! Don't you hate when that happens. I love how you styled it and that DIY painting is gorgeous.
That looks so great! I love the furniture and the art! Nice job!
Ooo, that painting is FANCY! I seriously wouldn't have guessed it was a DIY. And I'm drooling over that table!
Looks SO good!!
Your entryway looks so good and I'm mildly obsessed with your ornament tree!!! Like might drive to Pier 1 tonight, lol :)
I love how it's coming together!! It looks great!
Love the console table. Isn't it funny how you hadn't purchased a retail piece if furniture in a long while? Our front door opens right into our living room/kitchen, so I have nowhere to set up a space like that. Your DIY art is cool too. I did a black and white abstract painting in a gold frame recently myself.
Thus all looks amazing. I love the console and I particularly love the art. You know how to take all these different elements and make them look like they belong together.
I am VERY impressed with the art! Well done!
That art!! Make me one! I'm starting to sound like a broken record. Isn't it weird to finally have an entryway? I'm still getting used to it over here. Though ours looks nowhere near as amazing as yours!
OOh Love this whole space! Our styles are eerily similar. I diyed some painted circles curtains for my kitchen and a coffee table inspired by that line of tables from West Elm! It looks awesome. So much better than Exhibit A:)
Great makeover...that West Elm console is perfect and the DIY art is genius!
