Closet Crazy House

As a house warming gift for a friend I decided to turn their metallic flower wallpaper entry closet into an open bench with built-ins. I had every intention of this being straightforward but when putting up the new beadboard I found the width from top to bottom to vary by over 2"! The first time I have run into working in a Fun House. My biggest challenge was finding a way to trim out the project so that the incredibly out of square walls did not look so. I researched and found a great tool called the angleizer to help me find the angles I needed to make the craziness look much less noticeable. That tool has already been used 3 more times, so that was an amazing bit of know-how picked up from this project. Everything was made from scratch including the chalkboard mail slots.
