We had a closet by our front door that had bifold doors and made the small space very dark. Four years ago my husband built this mudroom closet instead. We have a lot of storage for various seasonal items and extra coats below. And we have baskets above for gloves, hats, etc. We use the hooks for every day jackets, diaper bags, and purses. We decided it was time for another update.
We used pine board to create a board and batten look, and painted the inside with Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.
This was the finished product the first time around. We decided that it needed a bit something more to make it look complete. I added new fabric to the foam cushion, and new pillow covers that were purchased very inexpensively from Amazon of all places. The hooks were purchased from Amazon four years ago, and we used them once again.
