We planned a large closet between the bathroom and pantry doorways. We were going to just frame it in and throw on a door, but having a woodworker in the family means we got to be a bit more creative. We decided to build it more like a wardrobe. Spent some time designing it then got busy. And are still being busy - this thing is huge! Gonna take a little time to get it done but I figured I'd post an in-process picture or two.
The bottom of the unit is two drawers high and about two feet in height (and four feet wide - I said it was a big space, right?). I decided to stain it the same red that we used on the exterior siding - a nice deep semi-solid barn red would give us a great pop of color in an otherwise staid area.
Unfortunately the picture below makes it look like we picked a bright apple red. That's just the light spectrum we have in the garage.

Ah! This shows the color much better. Oh wait. Now it looks magenta. Darn.
|Hmm, a bit purple, isn't it?
Basically, you're going to have to believe me when I say the color is great and looks wonderful between the old courthouse doors.
