The entryway is finished and I cannot tell you how excited I am! It was a challenge while also working full-time. There were many days that I did not want to dive into it after putting in a full day of work, not to mention getting home when it’s dark doesn’t do much for motivation.
If you missed the past weeks you can catch up here
Here is what I started with…..
As I mentioned in a previous post our entryway is teeny tiny!! Painting it white and accenting with warm tones really opened it up. It no longer looks or feels depressing. I also added Board and Batten which you can see how I installed and spaced in previous posts.
I have been asked if I will remove the shiplap on the lower stair wall and install B&B. At some point, yes! but for now, I’m loving the look of both.
The color is Sherwin Williams High Reflective White. I went with this color as other popular whites/creams took on a yellow hue since the entry does not receive a lot of natural light. I also used this same color in our powder room on the Tongue and Groove. I would NOT RECOMMEND this color as a good all over white if your home receives a fair amount of light because it can be blinding (I tested it out in my family room and went with SW Alabaster instead)
All and all I am extremely happy with the results. This was a lot more involved than when I did a similar Board and Batten technique in my family room that was completed in a weekend.
