DIY Closet to Entry Bench

Furniture redos 03.23.16
First impressions are everything and hollow core bi-folding doors are not the feeling I was after for the first impression upon entering my home. Removing the closet doors and building a custom bench complete with drawers, baskets, and hooks for a beautiful, comfortable and functional space was the perfect solution. Visit my blog for more details on this and many other home projects!

    This was about the very first project I thought of doing when I walked in the door the first time but it took us 2 years to actually do it! But, that is pretty much how things go around here :-)
