This space is in a hallway between two bedrooms. Prior to renovation was bookshelves and cabinets which were virtually unused. We removed the one cabinet below on the right to accommodate an office chair. Installed left over wood flooring, installed new trim. We primed and painted the laminate hunter green counter a semi gloss white. Then finished painting the entire bookcase the same color of white in a satin finish. Love the new updated space, it is used on a daily basis now.
