Hey guys! Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I actually turned my camera on yesterday, dusted it off and now I kind of forgot how to write a blog post! Yikes!!! It will all come back to me, hopefully.
Among the many things we did around the house the last couple months, one was this great little nook area. I couldn’t be happier with this space. It looks like it’s been there the whole time!
Let’s take a gander at the before! A good before and after never gets old….
The closet on the right, right before the front door is what we took OUT. Yes, good bye bi-fold doors. I’ve always been a pretty simple person. However, removing two closets and some cabinets in the laundry during this renovation has REALLY simplified our home. I’m LOVING it.
This closet was full of RANDOM items. We hardly use this door. Only guest, really.
Our contractor really pushed to remove the header above the closet.
Initially, I didn’t think it was necessary. But now that it’s removed, it makes the space. I didn’t want it to feel like you were sitting in a closet.
This hallway already had board and batten. I wanted the board and batten to wrap inside this nook to make it appear that it had always been there.
Now…. let me introduce you to beautiful and functional.
You guys, doesn’t it flow so well?
With our new “beachy” vibe going on over, I found these great pillows on clearance at good ol’ Marshall’s. The buttons are mother of pearl. #love
When I first envisioned this space, I wanted hooks along the top of the board and batten for coats. But, after it was finished, I didn’t wanna “mess” with it. Again, this space is for guest. We use the mudroom for all our storage needs. If there’s a lot of people coming over, we can use our bed for coats.
Shoes can be tucked under the bench and most importantly, there’s a bench. I love having an area available to sit at when coming in and out of a door.
Thanks for stopping by! I have lots of updates coming your way.
Love it? Pin it!
