Closet turned into a Mud Room - coat hooks, bench, shoe cubbies & extra storage up top. Build shoe cubbies like this in coat closet at top of stairs? I like how the top shelving is sectioned off! Should do this to Finns closet.
Break down a wall between kitchen and living areas but keep the load-bearing posts and turn it into an awesome storage island. This can really save the cost of having to do major construction for the load bearing wall.
My daughter and son in law's family room is a mixture of antique and updated re-purposed furniture - which is so trendy today. It contains a 1960's Castro Convertible sofa that I redesigned and an Antique chair that I updated - reupholstering both in off-white linen, has a 1760's English Drum table and the 1960's Knabe baby grand piano that I practiced on as a little girl. Pretty cool!
