    • Pure genius.
      By Jlparsons, on January 11, 2016

    • Amazing! You really paid attention to detail. Great work!

    • What a great use of space!

    • This is a GREAT solution for entry way dead space- so useful, and beautiful too!
      By Angel55, on January 13, 2016

    • Its so beautiful!
      By JessParsons, on January 18, 2016

    • This is a beautiful project, amazing work!

    • Even better in person!!
      By Storts02, on January 20, 2016

    • Cool

    • Sweet use of space

    • One of a kind in design. Brilliant

    • upside down baseboard for upper trim came out nice
      By screwdriver bob, on January 27, 2016

    • Your project has inspired me to change the entry space in my apartment. Thanks
      By Bronx Native, on January 27, 2016

    • Nice work
      By StoneR, on January 27, 2016

    • I like the before and after pics. A complete overhaul of that dead space. The visual presentation of your project posting is also effective and uncumbersome. Looking forward to more DI Y did I try that projects
      By cad_99, on January 27, 2016

    • @reynavega @angiejhi Please add me to list for one too. This is a must have
      By #letsdothis, on January 27, 2016

    • Screwdriver Bob - thanks, I didn't like how the standard crown looked, especially so close to the door moulding but I wanted some depth to finish off the top. And mounting crown to one edge would have been tricky. I found a "blockish" baseboard with a thick bottom (which became the top) and it fit in nicely.
      By DI Y did I try that?, on January 27, 2016

    • fascinating. assumed you used same baseboard for top/bottom. now noticing difference. blockish finish has classic look. professional grade and highly detailed work. i agree mounting crown to edge would have been tricky. creative work around
      By screwdriver bob, on January 27, 2016

    • I wonder if I can get my bf to build one of these in our mud room. Something like this would be especially nice in winter (particularly THIS winter). Plus, each of our dogs could have their own jacket basket :-)

    • Looks good I would add overhead LED lights to showcase large sectionals
      By "Concrete Guy", on January 28, 2016

    • I made something similar. It's been an awesome organizational upgrade! Freed up entrance closet space w/o adding front room clutter. Mine is functional. Yours looks WAY nicer. Congrats!! Good project post
      By Born2DIY, on January 28, 2016

    • Congratulations on the win! It really is a great project you made; tough to beat. Well done.
      By Bkarner, on February 17, 2016

    • Thanks @Bkarner, Likewise your coffee table and the detail in the top is insane!

    • What a transformation! You clearly have an expert's eye & skill to take the space from what it was to what it is now. Beautiful work!
      By RYOBI Nation, on June 24, 2016

    • @ryobi I don't know about expert eye but thanks! It was fun to see the pencil sketch actually turn into how I envisioned it. I forgot to mention I couldn't have done it without the 18v ryobi blower... Cutting stone = tons of dust #sorryneighbors ;)
      By DI Y did I try that?, on June 24, 2016
      • Glad I was not visiting you at that time! I imagine cutting stone is also noisy (#sorryfamily). This post is first time I saw yard pre-transformation. Really great work. Nice job
        By StoneR, on June 26, 2016

    • It really turned out great. And thanks for mentioning the blower! That's one of those little tools that you wonder how you ever did without it once you have it.

    • This is a huge improvement, and what a great idea! It could be summed in the idea of adding character to a new space. Your Dehab project is a great example of taking a space from merely functional to functional and beautiful.
      By RYOBI Nation, on September 7, 2016

    • @Ryobi Thanks I appreciate it. Another thing I didn't mention, I used all scraps except the 2x2 plywood, but even if I bought everything it would have cost less then buying a replacement plastic drop in...
      By DI Y did I try that?, on September 7, 2016

    • That's even better! Great work!
      By RYOBI Nation, on September 8, 2016

    • I definitely like the beadboard look. Very nice!

    • This is such a cool idea! What a fun way to add a little something special to ordinary trick-or-treating. Wonderful use of available material, too. This is definitely an upcycle to be proud of.

    • Such a great project! The paint/wood oil look great, too. This would also be a great place to set treats if you host an outdoor party for the kiddos.
      By RYOBI Nation, on December 29, 2016

    • Thanks! I really liked how it came out as it was the first time I used oil instead of a stain or other finish... The top boards were old weathered 2x4's so I didn't want to cover them with anything.
      By DI Y did I try that?, on December 30, 2016

    • I like your paint and finish combo great job
      By Up_Cycle_Engineer, on December 31, 2016

    • congratulations on your win!! Super cool Lemonade stand!
