“The Problem Wall”
January 12, 2011
Jennifer from I Heart Organizing wrote to me today asking if the board and batten loft solution from Monday would work in her home on her ‘Problem Wall’. Jennifer wrote:
“I would love to do this project right in between our front door and large picture window in our living room/entry. It almost looks to be a similar situation to the room you worked on . . . I have always struggled with no coat closet in this room. When I saw what you did, it seemed like a perfect solution! Just wondering your thoughts.”
So I got a little creative with her entry and decided with a little Photoshop ‘cut and paste’ she could visualize her improved foyer.
Here is Jennifer’s ‘Problem Wall’ now:
And what it would look like after installing some simple board & batten.
I hung her pictures a bit higher to accommodate for the ‘new’ wall treatment. Since Jennifer is a busy mom of three boys, those extra hooks will come in handy. She could use some extra storage, but there’s no need to make it drab or expensive, so I added this upholstered bench.
While shopping online for storage benches, I found a few more stylish versions that work well for similar entryways!
