A great way to turn an underutilized closet into a multi-functional space! Create a small mud closet by removing the door, then adding wall hooks, padded seating and open storage under a built-in bench. What do you think?
Saw this on another post, but wanted the original link to the site. It explains that the inspiration came from trying to figure out how to store Christmas and Halloween decorations. ::might be a good idea for my mama with her damp basement issues!
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. - interiors-designed.com
