Most readers know I have an obsession with old windows. That’s why I love today’s renovation project.
Sherrie says they don’t have a closet in the entrance of their raised bungalow. As a result, they never had anywhere to hang a guest’s jacket. Furthermore, the entrance was always a mess of shoes and coats.
She started her project with some great bones – free crates from a friend and a beautiful old window from another. She tore apart some crates to use the wood so she could build a shelf in the ones she wanted to be the shoe shelf.
She purchased hooks from the dollar store and spray painted them black.
She attached the hooks to a great window she received from a friend.
She wanted the shoe self to also purpose as a bench. She used a piece of plywood, foam from an old exercise mat (the outside was ripping but the foam was still good), some batting and some material that used to be a valence and created a bench seat. She attached it to the crates which also keeps them together nice.
