Love the shiplap against the small wall entryway idea
This is great!!! Back wall of garage before enter the house? Simple built-ins to create a mudroom or storage anywhere from a kids room to a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Or instead of custom, buy two thrify store bookcases and paint them, bolt them to your wall and add wainscotting between them. Then pick up a thift store bench and cut it to fit. Add the hooks and you're set.
Robert Doisneau: Le remorqueur du Champs de Mars, Paris, 1943 Walters smith Honore this would be such a cute picture to reenact with Cecily and Ambrose when they are older. Obviously maybe not in Paris though haha
