Entryway Closet Remodel


This is the most boring post ever, but I had to document our first successful home improvement project. We started out with a long hallway of closets, seriously, four coat closets in a row. Really, who needs that many closets??!! Here goes:

Sam decided to grab a sledgehammer and demolish the wall between two closets. We discovered that the beam in between was a support for the ceiling. Sam's dad stepped in and built us a header (not shown) to support the ceiling so we could rip out the studs.


Now we have an empty canvas.     

Sam built a subfloor out of 2x4s and plywood. Next is the bench area (built the same way.)
Completely forgot to document the steps in between...sorry. He framed out the bench and sbbfloor with base board molding and built some simple decorative shelves in the "nook" area.
He added a board for the base for the coat hooks. We also painted the inside of the entire space a darker color to make the white accents pop.

Voila! We are still going to add some wooden crate baskets (I found some cute ones at Hobby Lobby) and we are going to upholster a bench seat. I am going to use an old curtain. The fabric is durable and I am in love with the pattern. You can see it two pictures above this one. We laid it out just to see what it would look like.
