Back wall of garage before enter the house? Simple built-ins to create a mudroom or storage anywhere from a kids room to a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Or instead of custom, buy two thrify store bookcases and paint them, bolt them to your wall and add wainscotting between them. Then pick up a thift store bench and cut it to fit. Add the hooks and you're set.
Stairwell Storage If the stairs leading to your cellar are wide enough, the wall beside them can be transformed into an area to store items...here it was a pantry but I took the half wall alongside my stairs , added bookshelves & turned it into a gardening library with my gardening books, a wreath, paintings and other like items! This themed area in my home is fall gardening in my hme...Golddust
