One Space Three Ways {a redesign challenge}

One Space Three Ways

I love Redesign! 

It’s where you shop your own home to makeover a room while buying nothing or as little as possible.

It’s a fun challenge for me to do….

One Space Three Ways!

For this challenge I chose my foyer.

Not a big space but difficult to decorate.

Here is what it looked like when I started.

One Space Three Ways Start

Now I hope you are ready for lots of pictures …

Look One:

Look One Foyer Redesign

Changed out the lamp to one I had painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles.

Brought the newly gold painted coat rack from my daughters bedroom.

Painted the terracotta pot in about 5 minutes with gold and white acrylic paint I already had.

Took away a few pics and I was done with look one.

Look Two:

One Room Three Ways Nautical


This is my nautical look.

The brass door knocker was a great find at a marine store last week while on vacation. It was on sale for $13.20!

The shutter I’ve had…it was originally on my in laws house.

I had the circle wreath and burlap ribbon…I just wrapped the ribbon around…easy!

The brown pottery was a recent yard sale $1 find.

All of the shells we have collected from vacations.

The red box was another yard sale find for $2.  I just painted and distressed it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

The lamp came from another room.  It too is painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Paris Grey over an red/orange spray paint.

The frame I had and the letter B was from a craft my daughter did!

Look Three:

One Space Three Ways Bench

This was a welcome and fun change…I think it’s my favorite!

The bench is special.  It was my husband’s grandmother’s and we got it when she passes away.  I may paint it someday.

The side table came from the bathroom.

The pillow from a chair in my family room, it is a fab $12.99 find from Home Goods.

Books from local thrift store for .25 cents!!

  1. I think the nautical was my favourite too… though that bench is really pretty and probably quite functional as well. I loved this challenge!! I did my entry hall too… so much fun!! Found you through the link up- can’t wait to explore your blog some more:)

  2. I like the 2nd and 3rd as well. The 3rd is such a drastic change and do love it.
    However, I think the 2nd works for a nice Summer feel.

  3. Love the nautical look!!! But as you know I Love the beach! I would leave it that way at my house for the summer and then fall and winter go for the cozy, warm, bench look. Looks like you could come in with your winter coat and boots and cozy up in a warm home. Great job!

  4. Thanks for your sweet words! It was super fun. I use to get paid to redesign but haven’t really pushed myself in a while…I’m so glad I did, I remember how much I love it. Going to check yours out~ Sonya

  5. I didn’t even mention the white dresser…My sister actually painted it and refinished the top. She didn’t like it in her house so she gave it to me. It was a yard sale find for $15. 🙂 Thanks!

  6. I loved the Nautical look too! Of course, being married to a long time sailor and now having a sailor son colors my opinion a bit! But the bench is a great idea, and very useful!

  7. I have to agree with your husband for a summer look and then in the fall the last one maybe!

  8. Number two is my favorite. I’m in love with your white cabinet! It’s gorgeous!

  9. I like them all … but of the three I’m with your hubby … Nautical is my fav.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Hugs …

  10. Thanks Laura…I decided the Nautical would be great for the Summer! Thank you for stopping by, heading over to your blog now!

  11. It’s a toss up between the second and third look. I’m leaning towards the third. I love the bench and placement of all the other items. It looks cozy and inviting.
