Not too long ago I posted about my home and my entryway storage dilemma. Living in a home built in 1928 provides plenty of character and charm, but definitely not enough closet space.
The solution was to remove a non functional closet and replace it with a new built-in.
The built-in is finally in place and I am thrilled with the result!
The built-in was designed by myself and constructed by the extremely talented Papa Joe. More tutorials to follow on Papa Joe's construction.
I considered wallpapering the interior of the closet, but ultimately decided to hand paint a mural. Stay tuned for that tutorial as well.
A sisal runner fit perfectly and is both beautiful and functional. It's easily removed for cleaning.
The cubbies are a great landing for keys, sunglasses, mail, and my handbag.
Inexpensive files hold papers that need to be accessed frequently.
An urn found at TJ Maxx holds pens and pencils for quick notes.
It's amazing how a small redesign like adding a built-in can drastically change how a home functions.
The built-in is in a perfect central location in our home. It makes it so much easier to keep everything organized. The old closet design did not function well. It's removal allows more light to enter and makes the entire home flow better.
Aaahhhhh...It feels good to be organized.
