We have a smallish entryway and a largish family! :) It has a closet as well, but it is very small. We have loads of shoes, coats, and winter gear when cold. I have 1 over the door shoe holder on the inside of the closet door, but it's not nearly enough.


Please help me make sense out of the clutter. I don't mind re-purposing or craft projects. I just don't know what to do with it all. Help!

My brother made this bench for his entryway. He calls it a Mexican bench because it is so colorful. It is made of fir and poplar. It took him a week on and off to make.
