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.


You can see how nicely the lattice pieces finish off the outer edge and tie into the top shelf section.

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.

  1. This is awesome!! I love the planks and the hooks are just perfect! I did this same sort of hook setup in my laundry room, but just with Command hooks, so it’s not as pretty, but they’ll be easy to take down when we move since we rent. I’ve been eyeing that Ikea shoe thing for a while now too! It’s great!!

  2. I’m in LOVE with this plank wall!!! I’ll be featuring it next Sunday, the 19th! Thanks for linking up to the “Get Your DIY On” link up party! Remember to come back on February 2nd with your simple décor projects you love!

  3. Wow, I love how that turned out! I love plank walls, they’re super fun, and you did a great job using that for organizational space as well! Totally pinning this, and I wanted to let you know I featured this on my blog this morning; thanks for sharing it at Creativity Unleashed!

  4. HI Danielle,
    I LOVE this idea! We have a very similar type set up. There’s no foyer and no room for any type of drop zone. I have often thought about putting a row of hooks on the wall behind the door – but adding the planks is genius! I really love what you’ve done. I hope you’ll stop on over to Two It Yourself and link up this project with the Link It or Lump It Link Party. http://www.twoityourself.com/2014/01/link-it-or-lump-it-party-20-plus.html

  5. Danielle, I love this! I definitely need this in my house. The links to part 2 don’t seem to be working, though?

    Also, I work with Cassity over at Remodelaholic — thanks for sharing at our link party! Have a great weekend!

  6. Visiting from Creativity Unleashed: I love this idea! The hubby and I were just discussing doing a board and batten wainscoting in our laundry room with hooks, but now I’m think maybe I like you horizontal boards better. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks so much Stephanie. I had done board and batten in my dinning room and kitchen in our last house and just wanted to do something different. I think it would be perfect for a laundry room.

    • Thanks so much Jocie, and yes I highly recommend that shoe dresser. We have no front closet so I have no idea what we do without it.
