Modern Entryway Makeover … The Reveal! {ORC Finale!}

May 6, 2015
GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

You guys … !!!  It’s Thursday and I’m posting my Entryway Makeover Progress … ON TIME.  Don’t pass out from shock (because I really, really want you to read the rest of this post … or skim the pictures at least!!).

Yes, my friends, I have completed the One Room Challenge again this season.  And now I need a nap.  A long one.  Think the boys will allow that today?!? #notachance

So … if you have no clue what I’m talking about, let me catch you up real quick.  The One Room Challenge is a six week challenge hosted by Linda at Calling it Home.  Basically, it’s a challenge an opportunity for a bunch of bloggers from all over blogland to come together and makeover ONE ROOM (hence the name) in 6 weeks.  Which is really 5 weeks of work time (I’m too tired to explain why that is, but trust me).

ORC-blue-250x160

This is my second time participating (you can check out our Shared ‘Big’ Boys’ Room Makeover from last season HERE).  And this time, I totally thought it would be a breeze.  I mean, compared with last season, we had no floors to refinish, no room full of trim that needed replacing, no beds to buy (or any major furniture purchase), and our entryway is probably a quarter of the size of the bedroom we did last season.

But … shocker here … I was up late, at the very last minute, finishing this space.  Apparently, it was a bit more work than I thought. Or maybe my boys were just more demanding of my spare time this season.  Yep … I’ll blame them.  They can’t read yet, so they’ll never know!

But enough chit chatting here.  I told you I wanted you to actually SEE what I completed, so I’ll zip it and just show you the pictures.  And when I say pictures, I mean like 189264936 of them.  Sorry.

Here we go …

WOW!  What an improvement!  I love this Black and White Modern Entryway Makeover.  Via View From The Fridge

>> THE BEFORE <<

Okay, I had to start with a pretty picture of the after, but now let’s look back to how it all started:

LOTS OF RED

And a SUPER disorganized Entryway ‘nook’:

MY HELPERS

A little DIY BUILT-IN Bench building …

OWEN THINKS HE'S HELPING TO BUILD THE BENCH!

Here’s the result:

>>  THE AFTERS!  <<

OUR WELCOMING ‘CREW’ (aka Miss Molly)

Upon entering, you’ll no longer be greeted with our overflowing shoe cabinet/bench and 12 million jackets thrown about.  Instead, you’ll have a nice BUILT IN bench to sit on and remove your shoes (or purple rain boots):

Full Bench tutorial coming soon … I hope!

I refinished some plain ol’ crates from Michaels with stain, number stencils, and castors.  They may be in for a bit more embellishing (think hardware) in the near future, but for now they’re so much better than our old storage system … pretty AND functional!

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

And I whipped up some black and white pillow covers using THIS envelope method.  The herringbone/chevron-ish fabric of the large pillow was from JoAnn.  And some of you fellow bloggers out there might recognize that polka dot fabric from the table centerpieces at SNAP a couple weeks ago (yes … I stole three squares from neighboring tables for this project).

And those fun green vintage door knob handles were on clearance from a local shop last month, and I think they’re the perfect way to add a bit of color and weight to the hook space in this nook:

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

We also added some additional baskets on the wall which will be used for miscellaneous hats, gloves, scarves, etc.  You know … the things that we need for the Minnesota winters!

But I wasn’t about to dig out all the winter stuff again to ‘stage’ this picture.  So imagine.  I suppose you could also throw sunglasses in here.

Moving further into the space …

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

Remember that blank red wall behind the door before?  Well … now it’s white, functional, and displays pretty things …

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

We made that DIY Custom Coat Rack to add a little color and whimsy to the space, but also to add function.  It’s always nice to have a place for guests to hang their coats and belongings, right??

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

We also put in Ikea picture ledges above so we could display some fun pictures and artwork.  You know … because we want all of our guests to see our cute faces right upon entering.  Obviously.

We used mostly black and white for the frames and images with a couple pops of gold.  I also added some fun clipboard art for a little extra texture and interest along with the frames (look for a tutorial on that coming soon, too!).

I heart this wall.  So let’s look at it again …

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

Now … we have this odd little shelf above the doorway leading into our main space.  It had a lonely owl before, but now it just might have the perfect decor …

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

Here … let me give you a closer look:

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

Don’t these letters look vintage and old and rusty and heavy?!?!  Well … they are rusty, but they’re not old OR heavy.  They’re brand spankin’ new … and made of cardboard.  These were a gift from my SNAP Secret Sister (yep … that’s a thing that happens at blog conferences), Leanne from Diva of DIY (she’s awesome, by the way, so you should go check her out … when you’re done reading this).

They’re made with Iron paint (yes, there’s actually metal in it) painted onto cardboard letters.  Then, a rust activator is applied over top to create the real rust effect.  Who knew?!?  And I’m in love with these …

GORGEOUS black and white Modern Entryway Makeover from View From The Fridge

Oh, and finally … I couldn’t finish off the space without a coordinating black and white wreath on the front door:

>>  BEFORE AND AFTERS  <<

So … let’s review the progress we’ve made over the past 5 weeks:

WOW!  What an improvement!  I love this Black and White Modern Entryway Makeover.  Via View From The Fridge

Well …. Better?!?

SO.  MUCH.  BETTER.  (in my opinion … ha!)

And brighter, and functional, and pretty, and welcoming, and personal, and …. well, I better stop.  I’m just bragging now.  I’m a bit sleep deprived at the conclusion of this project, so I apologize for my rambling.  And incomplete sentences.

I love how the vintage door knob hooks and rusty HOME letters add just a touch of shabby chic to the clean and modern black and white palette of the space.  We’re well balanced like that around here … :)

And now let’s look at the part I’m most proud of in the space (mostly because I built it all myself) … the new Built-In-Bench that actually works!  It fits the ‘nook’ so much better, it’s cleaner, AND serves as storage!!

WOW!  What an improvement!  I love this Black and White Modern Entryway Makeover.  Via View From The Fridge

And now … if you’re still reading … I’m impressed!!  Thank you for making it through all my pictures and ramblings.  Look for more tutorials coming soon of items we made for this space (bench, crates, artwork, etc) as well as a full source list of everything we purchased for this Entryway.

If you stopped by from the One Room Challenge … I’m so glad you’re here!  If you’re new to View From The Fridge, I’d love for you to drop me a note and say ‘Hi’.  You also might like more of my DIY/Crafting projects HERE or our last season’s One Room Challenge Makeover:  Owen and Charlie’s Big Boy Room:

      You’re right, Amy! I still need to find a way to make sure all of our coats don’t end up strewn about (and covering up my favorite hooks and knobs). Behind that barn door, we’re just about to start building a functional closet space to keep all of our crap stuff. I’m hoping that will be the answer! Stay tuned …

    I have a link party going on this weekend, I’d love to have you join:

    Hello. :)

    Your entry is pro level now. Amazing transformation and I love the green accents. It would be boring without them!
    I also loved the vibrance of the previous colors. I guess your ‘old’ is my ‘new’.

      Thanks! I know … a lot of people liked the old ‘red’ decor from the before, too. I guess I’m just a big fan of white {that sounds kinda boring, doesn’t it?!?}. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re having a good week!!

    Love. Love your taste and design. I’m wondering what you did above your bench. Is it wallpaper or a stencil??

    • Reply Katie July 27, 2015 at 10:47 am

      Thanks, Lindsay! It is paint! Just painted it white first, then tapped off the pattern with frog tape, and painted grey over the top! Here’s a link to the details: http://viewfromthefridge.com/and-the-red-is-gone/.

      Thanks for stopping by and for the question!!
