One Room Challenge Foyer Reveal

Today is the big day you’ve all been waiting for – the One Room Challenge Guest reveals! I am so excited to be sharing my revamped entryway with all of you. And I can’t wait to see all of the other One Room Challenge Reveals over at Calling it Home.

If you’re a lover of shiplap, I think you’ll fall for our foyer renovation. We channeled our inner Chip & Joanna to bring a little bit of farmhouse to our 1980’s colonial.

In case you missed it, here’s what we did:

So without further ado, here is our redesigned foyer!

I wanted a basket to help store all of the “stuff” that always ends up on top of furniture in the foyer. I know we can’t be the only ones that end up with a pile of “stuff” in their foyer.

One more thing... Your dad helped you create this shiplap look? He did an amazing job! :) I absolutely love it! Sorry for all of the extra comments, I keep thinking of more to ask or say! :)

Hi Courtney! My dad did help me create the shiplap look - he is really skilled. We tell him all of time he went into the wrong field of work :) I do not think that putting hardwood on top of hardwood would work well. I do know that a lot of the new luxury vinyl can go over top of wood floors though! Have you thought about refinishing your current floors instead? The runner was attached with a couple of small staples for each step so it would damage the floor slightly. Since our stairs were just original, basic wood risers, we weren't worried about that. We figured if we wanted to replace the runner, we would still put down another one and the small staple spots wouldn't show. There are some alternative options with carpet tape and some velcro grip type things but we wanted to make sure it stayed secure so that it wouldn't become a safety concern. I hope this helps!

Love it! What is your trick to getting that stair runner to stay put without ruining the floor beneath it?

This is so pretty!! I’m just wondering bc it doesn’t mention the floor. Did you rip out the old tile and do all new flooring? Or go on top of it? Looks great!

@Laura, we are thinking about re-doing our floors also and have hard wood floors already. Do you think these would go over our hard wood floors? Or would we need to tear them out first?

This type of flooring allows for you to put it right on top!! It made it SO easy to install!

Beautiful update Laura! What product did you use to cap the steps? That's the next project we're undertaking at our house.

Thanks so much, Beth! Actually, I didn't use anything to cap the steps. That is how my steps were underneath - just basic, plywood steps. You can purchase stair treads but I didn't think in our case it would make much of a difference. The only area that we did have to modify was the landing. That's where we placed a piece of plywood so that it would be level. I hope this helps! Best of luck!!
