This was my porch...
It was okay, but I felt with all the visible coats and shoes scattered about, it was junky and cluttered.
This is my porch during...
Sorry for some of the poor quality pics; phone camera
|I bought these two corbels from the Re-Store a few years ago. They were marked $5.00 each but the day that I was there, all of the moldings were 50% off!! The hoarder in me knew I would need them. Thanks hoarder in me!!|
|Same thing for unit two.|
|You get a better sense of the added sides in this pic. Both units are in!|
|I repurposed the old shelf, thus all the wood filler.|
|Installation of cornice moldings and corbels.|
|Building of the bench. No worries of this baby collapsing :)|
|Bench top is removed for staining and a coat of white paint was applied to everything else.|
|The finishing touches; installing the trim!|
The now pictures!
|These were another hoarding deal. I paid under $3.00 for these monster hooks many years ago and used them in my old closet. As I have been working on a new closet, I was able to re-purpose them to the porch! And yes....Candy does fix EVERYTHING!!!!!|
|Yes! I even built the doors. They were probably the easiest thing about the whole project. Sorry no pics. I was under the gun to complete this project as hubby was on his way home and I needed it to be" A DONE" surprise.|
|I used beadboard wallpaper above the bench. I will still have to paint this. I am hoping it will hold up to the abuse of the front entrance. I bought it at Lowes, and I am not sure of the quality as it tore pretty easily during installation.|
By the way, if you are wondering where all the coats went, I installed three hooks in each unit. Now we can cram all of our outerwear in there!
I am so happy for this new build. Hubby was excited to see it too and I must send a big bouquet of THANKS to my sister, who helped me build both of the side units!
