I know many people are all about “open concept” when it comes to homes these days. People want their kitchen, living and dining…
I cannot believe I actually just typed that title, y’all. We just moved into the 70’s Landing Pad about three weeks ago. By no stretch is the house completed, but the fact that I can actually share a home tour with y’all that doesn’t include a three inch thick layer of dust on the floors…
This fall tour is not at all about pumpkins.
Sorry if you were ready for pumpkins.
Instead its about some of my favorite fall-ish things…cowboy hats and boots…red plaid blankets…and Elvis.
Ok, Elvis isn’t really fall-ish, but its my house and I’ll do what I want to.
If you want pumpkins and leaves and all that jazz, check back in a few weeks when I’ve actually had time to remember where I stored all that decor from last year.
It doesn’t matter how many times I paint a piece of furniture or upholster a chair – if the accessories around it don’t look good, the furniture or chair won’t shine and the space will fall short.
The details make the space.
It took me a really long time to realize that.
And a lot of backaches and wasted paint.
I get it now though – and even if we are just talking about decorating – the pain was worth the reward.
As dramatic as that sounds.
So this summer home tour is about the details.
The quirky little objects that I love.
That some may find ugly.
Or even tacky.
But for me, they make my space a reflection of my family.
And that’s all that matters.
So if you love it or hate it, either way, I don’t care.
Because we love it.
And its how we fly our freak flag.
Welcome to our freak show.
No really, you guys.
So much has changed since the last time I did a full home tour.
Especially my living room. And my kitchen.
I’m almost pee-my-pants excited to show you.
And now that I think about the things that have changed in the past two months, I realize I have no clue how it all got done and that I must be insane.
Oh wait, we already knew that.
Even though, I know you’ve already seen the entryway, let’s start there since its still new-ish.
First off, the title of this post totally has me singing the Kriss Kross Jump song – you’ll think me later for sharing that link.
Other than Criss-Cross, I couldn’t think of a better description for this wall though – besides of course amazingly-awesome-and-total-game-changer-for-my-dining-room.
But that would have been a really long title.
Now, in true “Jenna” fashion, I discovered how and how not to do this type of accent wall.
I started out doing it one way and then ended up doing it another way.
Either way, this criss-cross accent wall was truly a huge game changer for my dining room and does make me wanna jump-jump.
Depending on what colors you want to use and how big your wall is, you can totally get by with $30 for creating this wall.
Yes, $30 for one huge impact.
There is always that one room that I don’t get along with.
It never likes anything I do. It never feels quite right.
I will rearrange furniture, add this accessory, take away this, paint that – and it always ends with me throwing my hands in the air, saying screw it, and having a drink.
The dining room was that room.
Emphasis on the was.
Once I finally decided to stop worrying so much about it, it evolved into a space that I love.
It now has that same Vintage-Modern-Rustic vibe that the rest of the house has.
Gray is the hot new choice for wall color these days and after just giving my kitchen, living room and dining room walls a fresh coat of Repose Gray, I can see why! This color is a true gray color and was the perfect choice for us! And the icing on the cake? I used…
I’ve been keeping a secret. I know, its not nice to keep secrets. Please forgive me. I’ve been doing a mini-makeover on my dining room. You may not even recognize it, since the last time you saw it was on my home tour. It all started when I found this dresser at a yard sale…
