I’ve said before that I think I have some form of seasonal depression. I really hope I’m not the only one who gets stressed out and annoyed by the clutter winter brings. Seriously, four people, three of which accumulate tons of winter garb (you’re not looking at one) and one small entry closet does not equal love. To thwart winter’s takeover of our entry closet, I have concocted a plan of attack. Notice I said plan; I haven’t even begun the process.
The plan includes a sofa table with a drawer or two, a few storage cubes and some cute hooks. Ideally, Ben would build a modern style sofa table similar to this.
I would prefer a dark wooden top and deeper drawers, but overall, I really like the style. The drawers would be great for keys, mail, stamps and any pocket change.
The World Market deer head hooks would be the perfect spot for guests to hang their coats.
I plan to hang one under each picture frame behind our door, so long as the hooks are shallow enough to not bang into the door.
I love the deer hooks, but I would really love bird hooks, mounted in the same fashion with equal detail. Something similar, but more realistic than these. Creating functional, space-saving storage in our entry closet is key, too.
I had a chance to plan my attack when Jen from IHeart Organizing and I met up at IKEA, stay tuned for those details soon!
