convert your coat closet into a mudroom - then you can close the door on the mess. Great idea!
Removing doors and adding shelves turns a microscopic entry closet into a locker-style catchall to gather gear for the entire family. Old swim baskets with tea-towel liners stow off-season supplies on a top shelf, while hooks attached to the back wall transform large sections into lockers for coats and bags. Stainless-steel baking trays on the floor collect drips from shoes and boots.
