Entryway Makeover

This was my old entryway, cozy and cute, but like everything else I got tired of it. It began to look cluttered and extra things were getting shoved in the shelves. So a while back my husband added creamy white stripes to the wall, and it looked like this.
Then I added black frames with a touch of ribbon and now it looks like this.
I printed these out on regular white paper, stapled the ribbon to the frames and voila!


This is my touch of fall, cute white pumpkins and a febreze candle in willow blossom, love it!!
Here is the other little piece of entryway on the opposite wall. This is the perfect spot for my son's timeout bench. It is working out perfectly so far.

My husband bought this for him last year during the holidays, he built it 3 months ago, and I painted it 4 days ago. Talk about procrastination!! We are both working on it.
What do you think? I love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Thank you for stopping by, I will be linking up to:

XOXO

It looks beautiful! Even the before was gorgeous, but I adore those stripes, the frames, the candles, and that time out bench.

Love the makeover! The tan with black and white accents add so much. I love the after of the timeout chair. Great job!

I really like the black and white. I think I would get a time out just to be able to sit here for a while! Great idea about printing out the mom and dad signs - love them.
