Loft Living Room & Entryway Makeover Reveal!

I cant even begin to put into words how much I love this living room makeover.  It has been a whirlwind few weeks to get this puppy done, but it was SO worth it!!

I sure hope that you guys have enjoyed this #100reveal series with GE reveal® Lighting and The Home Depot as much as I have!  $100 and a little creativity can go a long way!

Lets just have a room refresher shall we?

I love showing these pictures.  THIS my friends, is what our house looked like on the MLS listing.

Living Room Before

Awesome right?!  I love looking at these pictures, it so perfectly attests to what massive transformations can be in store for your house if you just stop worrying at get started!

This is what the living room looked like 2+ years ago (you can see the room reveal here).  I love so many things about it still, but when the orange couch kicked the bucket, I knew that it was time to make a change.

This is what the living room looked like when we started this series just a couple of weeks ago:

GE Reveal Light bulb-2

Cue sad trombone.

My inspiration for the space was an industrial-ish loft (because that is all I want in this world and lofts don’t exist in Southern Utah)

This is what it looks like now:

(So many pictures, click through to see them all!)

My fear with leaving the brick raw was that the space would be extremely dark, so adding big light elements (as well as multiple light sources) was critical.  The modern dowel art and the light rug make a massive difference.

This room is pretty long, and the way that it is laid out puts the main area right in the center of the room.  There is this left over space that is too small for another seating area but way too big to just do nothing with.  I moved the desk from the wall next to the window to right smack dab in the middle of them and I am diggin it!

The copper plant shelves in the entryway are just to die for.  Can you believe that I got every single one of those plants from The Home Depot!?

We all love beautiful spaces, but one thing that was absolutely necessary for the entryway was complete functionality.  The plexiglass calendar is so critical to our lives and hello about those cute wall pockets.

Obviously these letters are for pics, but I just have to announce that the 2nd one is addressed to a Mr. Tim Riggins because of course.

This is the view from the front door, the shadow art literally greets you as you walk in.

One of my favorite elements in the room are the family pictures .  I love that they are so us, and not just giant smiling face portraits.

Can we just talk about the couch for a second?  I am 1000% sure that it turned out even better than I could have ever imagined.  This is the actual couch of my dreams.

Do you remember what it looked like before with that horrible vinyl?

I LOVE this room.  It turned out exactly like I was hoping.  Doesn’t it feel so loft-like?!

Creating a whole new room is so fun, but before you start tearing stuff apart, first try switching out your light bulbs.  Check out the difference between regular bulbs and GE reveal® light bulbs.

GE Reveal Before and After

Loft Living Room Makeover Before and After vintagerevivals.com-2

Loft Living Room Makeover Before and After vintagerevivals.com

 

I am telling you guys, using reveal light bulbs are like instant Photoshop for your house.  Without the reveal® bulbs there is not a chance I would take a picture in the dead of night and post it on the blog.  But seriously, look at how good it looks!   Reveal® bulbs make things look the way that they are meant to.  Whites are white (and not dingy yellow) colors pop and patterns and textures are more pronounced.

I didn’t want this last video to get lost in the pictures, so I am posting it down here too.  Court is SUCH a sport.  I don’t know why he goes along with these hair-brained schemes but man am I glad he does!!

 

You can see all of the projects from this series here!  There are SO many projects still to post, watch for the sources post next!

We have one more giveaway for (10) $100 Home Depot gift cards and GE reveal LED light bulb kits! All you have to do is comment below!  No qualifier, just a comment!

You’ve also shown me that I don’t have to be afraid to start something new because I don’t have to make it last for eternity; change is good. Well done!

    Mandy. You did it again. At first I was a little nervous to see you get rid of the floating industrial shelves and the paint-pen wall…but it looks freaking awesome. Definitely my favorite elements are: the couch (amazing!!!!), the family art portraits (how and where did you get those printed?), and the chandelier and copper shelves. I also love the cactus prints too. Where did you end up putting the ‘Love’ string art in your home? Also, those light-bulbs definitely make a difference- you made me a believer! Way to go on another awesome room makeover!!!!

    I love the first makeover and was sad that you were doing another… but guess what? Yep, I love the second one too! I tend to start a makeover project and take so long (usually due to fundage) that I start switching gears before I have completed… meaning I never have a “finished” product. I wish you could come finish them for me!

    I’m sure my comment will get lost in the sea of contest entries, but I wanted to tell you that you embodied my soul animal in this space. I’m actually pretty stoked you did this because there’s so much I can take away for my own style. Also, so glad you chose that couch! I probably would’ve cried if you hadnt

    Y’all are amazing!! the brick is the obv star of the show, but honestly, it is aaaallllllllllll just SO. STINKIN. GOOD. it doesn’t look dark or drab from here at all…My favorite element is the square dowel geometric art piece (I think?) Are the rugs sewn together smaller rugs? WHERE do you find all the fabulous textiles??? amazing! I’m LOVING the videos too!!! you rock.

    You really did it this time!!! It is GORGEOUS!!! This post had me think back to when I first began following your blog. It was in 2011 after being laid off from my job that I began watching the Nate Berkus show. It was there I was introduced to you and the world of blogging. I knew nothing of it but I remember seeing you on the House Proud segment where we got an opportunity to see your living room and bedroom. I was completely floored and then Nate spoke about your blog site and I ran to the desk to write it down. I am completely in awe of the work you’ve done since in this room and others within your home and outside of it. I enjoy reading your posts and I really get a sense that you want us to think outside the box and enjoy our homes, so Thank you!!! Your style is fearless and I pray I can be the same when it comes to decorating my home.

    This looks great!!! I really have to agree with you on the awesomeness of those light bulbs. I hate the dingy yellow that some bulbs give off, but I also don’t care for overly bright white. The GE bulbs look like a nice in-between. Awesome placement of all of the interesting art too! You’re so talented!

We’re looking into buying a blah tract home, so here’s my question for you: Is it weird (no idea what the outside of your house looks like) having a “normal” or “blah” or “generic” house on the outside and an awesome house on the inside? I mean, looking at this space makes me feel like all is not lost if I have to succumb to some sort of 1990’s blah.

I would love to have one in my home, but I struggle with thinking up what I would actually store there… And it’s crazy how many awesome plants the Home Depot has these days! Every time I go there it’s nearly impossible for me to resist impulse purchasing a leafy new friend. Also, your brick wall transformation has totally given me an idea for a spot in the new home my boyfriend and I will (hopefully) be purchasing this week! Thanks for the inspiration!

I’m glad you could see the potential of your home when you found it in all it’s former glory. :) I love the unique pieces like the plexiglass board and the ‘Hi’ art piece. I would have never guess that the GE Revel bulbs could make a room so much brighter. I’ll be buying those next time I head to Home Depot (which is more than once a week).

My livingroom walls are painted black right now so some GE reveal lightbulbs would probably work wonders for me!

    AWESOME AWESOME makeover! I love practically everything about it. Especially that bad a$$ light fixture/chandelier in the entryway and the brick veneered wall. I’ve wanted to do a brick veneer wall in our home for as long as I can remember…so you can bet your patootie I saved all of the posts you recently posted on that project to refer back to if it ever actually happens in our home.

    Great makeover lady! :)

    I love at least 100 things in your new space but, if I’m going to be honest, the styled letter to Tim Riggins made me most excited! 😀 Your plant wall on those copper shelves are an amazing contrast. Your family photos, sizing/shape/composition are priceless. I loved your room before, so I was a bit hesitant when I saw you’d redone it…but I like it even more! Somehow?! You do great work Mandi!
