Sorry folks, poor “before” pictures. This entrance way was old and needing a facelift. We gutted it down to studs, removing panelling and a closet that was twice the size, cramping the whole room. With a fresh start, we framed in a closet that works with the space. We re insulated walls and ceiling complete with 6 mil vapour barrier. Then came boarding and taping, priming and painting. We then set to work building a custom oak bench seat stained with dark walnut stain and two coats of Stays Clear acrylic clear coat. Exquisite!!
