We have no front hall closet or mudroom, just this small wall behind our door. So I had to work with what I had.
A wood plank wall was a perfect solution to add a bit of character to our suburban home as well as holding a whole bunch of wall hooks to keep our coats off the ground.
I chose the 1/8″ masonite boards as they fit perfectly over our existing baseboards. I really didn’t want to replace all the baseboards too.
This wall really is the only coat and shoe storage that we have. I use a basket that I found at Goodwill for the kids shoes. And on the opposite wall we have an IKEA shoe cabinet.
It’s called HEMNES and you can find it at IKEA for $129. I have no idea where we would store our shoes if we didn’t have this cabinet. We love it.
