This would be perfect in the breezway/mudroom DIY Bracketed Bench and Shelf - Construct your own custom entryway pieces and you can alter them to suit your needs. This bench & matching shelf w/a rod for coats requires just basic carpentry skills!
Mudroom wall that has space for shoes, bench for sitting, hooks for coats and backpacks and storage above. Love the multi-purpose area. But really also need area with "lockers" to sheild the clutter from view. Love the shoes under the bench, though.
