Our Hall Closet Makeover
Here is our hall closet makeover. The layout of our coat closet was a nightmare for us. The rod for hangers, when full, totally blocked the shelves. The shelves became either a catchall for stuff we never used, out of sight, out of mind. We definitely needed a redo.
First step was to figure out how I wanted to use this space. A place to hang coats backpacks (my sons are in college), umbrellas. Storage for hats, gloves, etc. A place to leave shoes, out of sight, but quick to grab.
I totally gutted the closet of the rod, shelves and old hooks. Two new, deeper, shelves went in, and I added Fabric Storage Cube for the hats and gloves. I labeled the boxes, of course, because I try to label everything. I also added some newer Wall Mounted Hooks with a burnished bronze finish. No more hangers. Yay.
Next part was my favorite. I made a rectangular frame out of scrap 2X4s that I had laying around in our garage. This then got attached to the walls with heavy duty screws. I then upholstered a piece of plywood, again from the garage. This went right on top of the frame. Wallah!!!! A bench to sit while you take your shoes off and a place to put them, instead of all over our living room.
