There you have it! Dingy useless closets turned bench seat, shoe storage and a place to hang your coats. Last week I hosted my MOPS leadership retreat and to have all the women place their belongings in this nook was awesome vs. on the floor in the entryway or delivering them to a bedroom like before. We loved how it turned out! The paint color is the same as our daughters nursery that we are working on (love using leftover paint) called Benjamin Moore - Stonington Gray. The baskets are from Marshalls and the lumber, wainscoting and hooks are from Lowe's. We had our family picture blown up at Costco and I used a hand me down frame. The pillows are all ones I made with my mom except the blue and white chevron one (Marshalls). Pretty inexpensive project!
We need to put a little piece of trim at the edge of the bench. Not sure if we will use wood or a strip of tile. We want to re-tile the entryway so we will decide then.
Here you can see our attic crawl space entrance where the drop down ladder comes out. To finish out the project, I will add four 8x10's of the kids (gotta wait till baby girl is born!) to go on each side of our family picture and then on the side walls.
You would think I am all projected out around here but I am still going strong. I have a few ideas floating in my head that include the laundry room and a guest bedroom downstairs. I'm sure you will be seeing more from me sooner than later! :)
