This Victorian farmhouse hallway makeover is beautiful! A fixer upper house has taken on a collected farmhouse feel – lots of DIY inspiration and tutorials. Affiliate links are included – full disclosure here.
We’ve been living in our 1902 Victorian for almost one year now, and we’re finally finishing up one of our last big pieces of this renovation – the hallway & entryway! I am so excited to share this space with you that we’ve worked so hard on. I’ve been sharing sneak peeks on my Instagram & Facebook pages, and I’m so happy to have this space completed. Now we don’t have to welcome people into our house with a construction zone either – huge bonus!
Victorian farmhouse hallway makeover:
We have worked with the existing structure of our Victorian home, restored what we could, and have added a farmhouse flair. It makes for a visually interesting & collected feel that I am in love with!
Let’s start in the entryway. We painted our front door & two interior doors with Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron (see the other interior door we painted this color – it made a HUGE difference!). I love how the original copper hardware shines against this gray! But that hardware didn’t always look like that – it used to be covered in old paint! We stripped it using NO chemicals and it’s so easy for you to do the same! Click here to see how to take paint off of old hardware.
We planked the walls in the entryway to hide some badly cracked plaster and to add that farmhouse character we love:
We picked that adorable antiqued copper sconce to play off of the existing copper – I seriously love it!
Oh what a difference a few years makes…
Let’s walk into the hallway:
I love the mix of old & new, wood & neutrals in this space! I got this mirror from Raymour & Flanigan, but it was from their showroom so I don’t have a link for it.
This mirror reflects our reclaimed door – it was actually from my parent’s lake cabin. It was taken out when they added on to the house a few years ago, and I’m SO glad they saved it! I hung it on this hardware (the best price I’ve found for barn door hardware!)
Now – let’s look up for a minute. Did you notice our WOOD CEILING? We took a big risk with this, and it turned out better than I could have imagined!
We used a product called Stikwood (I used the reclaimed Sierra Gold color). I want to do a whole separate post on this stuff because it’s kind of incredible. The short story: it’s real reclaimed wood, planed down really thin, and acts like a super strong sticker. You peel off paper and stick the adhesive on your surface – lots of people use it for accent walls. We finished off the ceiling with crown molding, and *love* how it turned out! We installed it again in our bedroom and LOVE how it turned out! Here’s a video of how we installed it – you can see the whole post by clicking here.
In our kitchen, we installed a wood planked ceiling, so I love how it plays off of that and adds some character to both spaces.
It looks right into our kitchen (see makeover pictures of that space here):
If you head up the stairs, you’ll see this space that we recently made over after our bathroom makeover. I love this space SO much! Come see the transformation here.
We added one more large mirror this wall – it really helps to lighten up the space and make it feel more open.

We added a sweet bench I found for $40 on Craigslist at the bottom of the stairs and I love this look!
