Pipe Shelves and DIY Bench for a Mini Mudroom

The entry from the garage is our prime spot for gathering shoes, jackets, and all the junk needed before heading out the door. Using some inspiration found online, I built this bench and put together the pipe shelves myself. Learn more on my blog http://junkyvagabond.blogspot.com/2012/06/mudroom-reveal.html
An industrial look with pipe shelving and a chalkboard door.
The metal bins hold our scarves, hats, and mittens.
The pipe shelves weren't too difficult...would've been easier with an actual plan!
A space for coats, keys, hats, sunglasses, and the number 5.
The finishing touch for organizing as we walk out the door - a chalkboard door.
