Use This Clever TikTok DIY To Add Interest To Your Boring Entryway
TikTok DIYers made their builder-grade entryway a unique and stunning sculptural element simply by installing a slatted casing over the existing brickwork.
Most of the supplies, such as wood, screws, paint, and a saw, are readily available. The project is inexpensive and easy to assemble and customize; plus, it requires no demolition.
Measure the entryway first to determine how much wood you will need. The outer casing is made from simple plywood sandwiched between two pine boards cut down to the desired width.
Use wood glue in the groove where the boards join, creating a recessed casing. To install the casing in pieces, attach each side section and then the overhead piece
with screws.
After the casing is firmly attached, you can add the wooden slats to the inner face with brad nails, using another piece of wood as a guide to get them spaced evenly apart.
While created their archway to augment a more modern and sculptural look, you can use their framework and plans to create a more custom casing for your entryway.
