Entryway Artwork Scheduler – a great way to display scrapbook pages AND post weekly family reminders!
In the home, I love for spaces to be functional as well as appealing to the eye. That is tough for my entryway since it is such a narrow space. It was a thorn in my side for years before I decided to create an art space on the wall. I started out in the craft world as a scrapbooker, and it always bothered me I didn’t have a good way to directly show off my pages. My husband helped me create this Entryway Artwork frame where I could show off a couple of my scrapbook pages.
It’s been in desperate need of an update and, with the addition of two busy kids in the house, I really needed it to become a little more functional and more of an organizational space.
When we first moved into our home 12 years ago we had all the walls painted beige. That was the basic color of the time and you decorate a room around it in almost any color. I could kick myself from 12 years ago. Beige??? And I paired it with red and brown. How dull!!
In the last couple of years I have slowly been giving our living room a makeover. The walls are now 2 shades of gray. We’ve added chair rail all around the room. The the red and brown are GONE and replaced with navy and yellow.
The only beige, red, and brown left in the entire house was on my entryway artwork frame.
I used the Dark Denim and the Honey Gold to paint over the entryway artwork frame and panels. 2 coats did just the trick.
Luckily, I still had a sample container of the gray wall paint to paint over the last of the beige wall.
Now just one more thing for the center panel…
I found this chalkboard at Michael’s and it was already a perfect shade of navy. It was also the perfect size for this space and now acts as our weekly scheduler so we can see what’s going on as we walk out the front door. It’s easy to update each week and my boys can check to see when things are coming up.
Now I’m going to start looking at all of my furniture in the living room in a new light. I may need to paint them Dark Denim or Honey Gold!
