You know those areas in your home that bug you every time you see them? Well, my vestibule was one of them, and finally I got to work doing something about it. One of the problems is that the area didn't have much character, and the other was that there wasn't a good way to store our scooters (we have a kids scooter and an adult scooter).
I always loved the board and batten detailing at my local coffee hangout, Smith Canteen, so I decided to do something similar.
First I painted the lower half of the wall with Benjamin Moore Indian River 985. Then I cut my strips of wood to fit. I primed and painted them (probably the most time consuming part of the project!).
Next, I tackled the scooter holder, which was inspired by drawer pulls made of leather loops.
