Foyer Makeover...Planking...Board and Batten

Welcome to Coastal Charm and our new room!!!
We have lived in our home for nineteen years and we have re-done every room at least once, some a few times, but our foyer was never touch, until now. For years, I loved it the way it was, but two years ago I got the itch to give it a makeover. Mr.CC was not on board with the idea of removing the wallpaper in there, he LOVED IT! I loved it too, but I was ready for a change. Everything is getting a lot whiter and brighter around here, so it was time for the foyer to get her makeover. I knew I wanted board and batten in there, then I decided to not scrap the popcorn ceiling, instead I was going to plank the ceiling. Now, since we have finished the room, we can't believe that we didn't do this sooner...we LOVE IT!                                   
                                                               Blessings,
                                                                  Linda

                                                         This is a before pic.

                                            Planked ceiling, and board and batten,
                                                all in one room, oh how I love it!


                                            This beautiful old window, that I found
                                             while out pickin' back in May, found
                                                   it's home, here in the new foyer.


                                      The plank ceiling was so very easy to install.
                                      I will do another post, with a tutorial on that.


                                          She also found her permanent home here.
                                          Did I ever tell y'all, how much I paid for
                                                                   this beauty?

                                                             Are you ready?

                                            I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked
                                              at the price tag...$65.00!!! I had been
                                              searching for this exact dress form for
                                              years, but I never found one under $250.
                                              Mr. CC said I was smiling ear to ear, I
                                                      might even had a tear or two.
   
 
                                             I am keeping things simple in here.


We also, opened up this doorway to the
dining room.

                                                   All the molding was removed.
                                                   and new wider molding was
                                                                   installed.



Thanks for coming by to see what
we have done. Up next, I will share
a tutorial, on how we installed the
board and batten.

                       I'd love for you to stay connected with Coastal Charm!!!!

Way to go, Linda! I would love to do something similar to our entry because it's so dark. The white paint on your new woodwork makes everything so bright and welcoming.

What an amazing difference, it looks so much brighter now. Love your idea of planking the ceiling, it really has that "wow" factor. What a deal on your gorgeous dress form, I've never seen one like that for such a good price. Thanks, Linda, for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party. Looking forward to seeing how you pulled off your ceiling transformation.

Awesome job.

Linda, it's great! I saw the facebook post online today when I was in line at Chick-fil-a, but didn't have time to read the full post until now. You and Mr.CC did a great job on everything, and it's so very "Coastal Charm" charming.

Linda, it looks really great. The difference is like day and night. The board and batten really opens up the room. And the dress form is gorgeous. Lucky you to have found it at such a great price.

I love your board and batten! We're getting ready to start on ours in our entry and part of our bedroom, hopefully before the snow flies.

Your foyer looks so fresh and bright now. The lovely board and batten with the plank ceiling adds some great architectural interest too.

Robin said...

It looks so good Linda! Now I think we need to go back and add that top piece on the board and batten walls we did :)

Gina Kleinworth said...

Turned out great! I have been wanting to do something similar in several rooms around here.
