A while ago we converted a headboard into this blue bench.
I've loved having it in the entryway,
but I have had a hard time figuring out what to do with the space around it.
It doesn't always look quite so sad and lonely.
I usually have something displayed,
but I didn't snap a picture before I stripped it dry.
I really wanted something that gives a lighter, brighter feel when you walk in the house.
We made the green shelf, so I snagged an identical black one from another room and stacked them.
I painted them both the same color as the wall to give them more of a built in feel,
and decorated them with some white frames from Ikea.
I'm planning on filling them with black and white family pictures, but I didn't want to leave them empty while I waited to get the pictures ready, so I printed a few black and white images to look at in the meantime.
I didn't realize how different the space looks until I saw these two pics next to each other!
I Love how a simple change can make such a difference!
