My entryway before was cute, but lacked functionality outside of the bench. My son keeps his shoes in the bench, but had no where to drop off his lunch bag, I had no where to put my purse of quickly throw my light jacket. Then I had an aha moment! I could duplicate a similar board and batten pattern from my living room into this hallway and make my entry foyer into a small mudroom.
Once I made up my mind, I didn’t over think it. I headed straight to the store and purchased my supplies for this super easy project!
- 1×3 unfinished common board (They were out of the pre-primed) for the horizontal pieces
- 1×2 pre-primed common board for the vertical pieces, and to trim beneath the crown molding, above the baseboard, and along both sides of the wall
- White Caulk
- White paint (used what I already had on hand)
