Reclaimed Entry Closet


I used an old display and shelves to create an entry closet that functions for our family. A note for all of you who will balk at the lack of space to hang coats for others: I'm in central Texas and we rarely use coats AND we don't have guests over enough to worry about hanging jackets. This remodel was to bring function to a closet that wasn't working for our family. :-)

      @Samantha Pulliam Awwwww... that is so sweet! Thanks so much Samantha. Ha! It's been so miserable around here lately. I haven't seen the sun in 4 or 5 days!!! But yes, it's pretty awesome here (although I lived in KY as a kid for 6 months and loved it).
