|I am finally ready to reveal our faux brick wall that I started back at the end of October! It was a time consuming project. The holidays resulted in it taking that much longer to complete but it was well worth it I promise.|
|Mr. Front Porch was not so sure at first what we would end up with but thankfully he helped me install the faux brick panels anyways. I shared the process of installing them in my DIY Faux Brick Wall- Part 1 post. As you can see the panels certainly have a 70s/80s vibe to them but at right around $27 x 2 a panel I knew I could work some magic.|
|And magic it was! It is hard to believe this is even the same space!|
|I painted the french doors SW Rainwashed. It is a color I had on hand already and have used it on various other doors thru out our home.|
|Then I decided I wanted to swap out the door hardware and found these beautiful knobs over at House of Antique Hardware. I ended up choosing the Antique Pewter because they coordinate with the rest of the hardware in our home. I was a little intimidated with changing the hardware out but let me tell you overall it was really easy. Do not get me wrong, it certainly took a few hours since I had never changed out door hardware before but seriously it was so much easier than I thought it would be. I had them swapped out before Mr. Front Porch even got home from work!:) I love how they look and the only downfall is that the screws are super easy to strip if you are not careful and thus I highly suggest you do NOT use a drill to screw them in. Other than that no complaints! If you are wanting to order vintage inspired hardware be sure to SIGN UP for their emails. You will receive a coupon code within 24 hours after signing up!|
|Even though this project took a ton of time I am very pleased...no beyond thrilled with how it turned out!|

Note: House of Antique Hardware provided me with the door knob sets however my opinion of their product is strictly my own and I received no other compensation for this post. Everything else used for this project/reveal was purchased by me.
