My husband dreads the words, "I was just thinking. . . ." Those words always lead to another home improvement.
Our front entry had no place for coats and shoes. It's a small area where a hall tree would occupy too much space. So, I was thinking. . . . why not hang a panel of white bead board with vintage hooks directly on the wall?
Behind the front door is prime real estate. It's otherwise wasted space and doesn't interfere with foot traffic. We bought the bead board and white paint at our local hangout, The Home Depot. I purchased the vintage wire hooks in Idaho ($1 each!) The shoe tray is from Home Goods ($8!)
I'm having so much fun hanging pretty things from the hooks!
