Fresh Updates for Traditional Room - Build Planked Board/Photo Board

Spring is the perfect time

for a fresh update in your home!

Pin It!

Terri wanted fresh and fun elements

in her living room.

So we took a lovely space and added some 

bright and neutral tones

in a large scale format

(ridding of several smaller decor pieces).

Something about large scale , clean lines, and bright colors

really simplify and change the mood of a room.

Terri's mantel has an outlet that we wanted to hide

and she had several photos she wanted to display.

So here is my idea:

Pin It!
Now really such a beautiful focal point.

Their family will enjoy changing out photos easily.

(I've just used Scotch tabs on my Photo Board

for a few years now without any paint peel)

We also updated some patterned pillows

with simple solid pillow cases

from Target and Hobby Lobby.

I made the planked display board

so that Terri can interchange decor

over the fireplace.

She can use seasonal wreaths,

a mirror, or a large framed photo, etc.

Now we have it displayed with this wreath from Target.

Here are the boards I used for the tongue and groove planking...

This is the basic construction for the two long photo boards.

Pin It!
And we're not done yet!

How about her buffet "before and after"

Terri found this large frame at the thrift store

and had the idea to turn it into a magnet board.

Love that!

It was the perfect size for the 24 x 36 sheet of metal

I got at Lowes for about $25.

Pin It!

Definitely a light hearted space now.

I love that many of the new pieces are interchangeable

allowing the space to be updated on a whim.

Hope you got some fresh and fun ideas for your home!

Hi Deb, It is amazing how you've changed the tone of this room. The color of the wreath blends beautifully with the color of the mantel and adds such height. Likewise, the changes on the buffet simplify and make a better statement. Moving all the small photographs together and making a larger display is perfect. You did an incredible job here.

Happy Easter to you and yours.
