See how much of a trek I have to make to get to the front hall closet?! Insanity! Haha, yes, I am aware that this is a #firstworldproblem, but I hated wearing my dirty winter boots across the floor, and I hated wearing my coat while removing my boots because it is so bulky!
As well, I needed some seating in the front hall for sitting on while removing and putting on one's shoes. So after a quick trip to Target (before it closes!), and Canadian Tire for some hooks, I have a much more user-friendly front hall!
The bench has turned out to be very handy, though the cushion is kind meh so I am sure I will sew a prettier one eventually :)
The hooks have worked out awesomely. I like that they are simple and modern, yet sturdy! I had to break out my hammer drill to get them into the cement wall.
I was originally going to do three hooks over the bench, but my stepdad pointed out it wasn't much of a view when you first opened the door, so I took his advice and did two on the wall and just wrapped one around to over the bench. Eventually I will hang some art up too!
