If your apartment lacks a designated entry, create your own with a bookcase. Remove the top shelves and install hooks on the back wall of the bookcase for hanging coats. Add more hooks to the sides of the books case for hanging leashes or umbrellas.
When you're "pretty much broke," THIS is how you get a stunning entryway makeover!
Love this for a laundry room at the back of the house. Just come in the back door and leave it all in the laundry room! Black trim on window and doors. Sash pulls on the windows. Long bench with storage.
