Streamlining our Entryway

We built this entryway system out of two tall vertical shelves and added a plywood bench seat, some wainscott and hooks to complete. It wasn't meeting up to it's capabilities so a few minor additions seriously increased our entryway storage and organization.
This system worked great but it needed some extra hooks and easy access shoe storage to become the real workhorse we needed.
Just a few extra hooks and all our coats and accessories are organized neatly.
A huge old wooden toolbox gets a bit of a makeover and becomes extra shoe storage...
The toolbox is perfect for dropping shoes in when we are in a rush and great for toting all the shoes upstairs when they start piling up!
