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.
A wall of floating shelves lends modern appeal and convenient storage to this living room. Painted brown, the shelves echo the color of other furnishings throughout the room and lend contrast to the striking blue walls. The shelves house an array of family photos and small storage bins.
