I wanted to show you a house update! We have "mostly" finished our new front entry!
Please excuse the terrible before pictures. YIKES!
Last year when you walked through the front door, this was your view. You saw a hallway and accordian doors.
This picture was standing by the according doors viewing the front door.
The view from a little further back.
To the right was the "formal" lving area.
The accordian doors.
The first thing we did was open up the wall to the left (in the above picture). Then we removed the accordian doors and framed in door way since the entrance was no longer needed.
Next, we removed the floors!
Above is before we touched anything in the house! If you were to walked through the door and turn right that is the front entry.
The same exact view after we removed part of the wall, framed in entry, and replaced floors.
We added shiplap to the the wall opposite of the front door.
And here is the final product!
I refinished this old bench. It was in my room growing up, and it came from a local church.
The back was FULL of names and I just couldn't paint over them. I left the back the original wood.
So what do you think??
I love the way it turned out!
