A few months ago we had a toilet overflow issue that took out part of the ceiling of our entryway. My wife decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to tear out the ugly closet that is there and redo the whole entryway. Currently it’s still being cleaned of paint and being finished, but my part is done!
I did a nice and easy bench out of HD plywood and painted the whole thing white. Then I took a wormy walnut board, added another board to increase the width, and some butterfly keys to add support to a crack and add some visual appeal to the top. Some oil and poly, and my piece is done – I hate painting, so that’s on she who wished it done!! Lol
