Operation Clean House: Part 2 {Entryway Progress}

Entryways are one of my favorite spaces to organize because there is so much going on in such a small space {especially when it comes to our place}.

If you recall, this is what we started with.

  • Inefficient use of shoe storage.
  • No seating {we would have to grab our shoes and walk halfway through the house and sit on the stairs to put the shoes on...ugh!}.
  • A blank canvas niche.


Here is where we are today... 

  • Stacked shoe racks to make room for seating.
  • Repurposed ottoman that didn't fit in the new playroom where I intended to use it.
  • Bought a wall hook unit to hang our everyday light jackets and sweaters {instead of hanging them on the dining room chairs...aaah!}.
  • Moved stroller to the garage until further notice.


What comes next?


  • Perhaps cover the shoes up with some kind of fabric, but since purging some shoes, the rack looks much better than before {And since my sewing skills are close to nill, the cover would need to be a no-sew project}.
  • Maybe add a couple of storage boxes to house accessories like hats and scarves.
  • Beautify space by finally decorating the nice little niche provided.
  • Tackle the entry closet.

What do you think? Any ideas on how I can discreetly {and simply} cover up shoes? Anyone else done a lot to a little space? Please share!
