I moved in the bottom half of a large hutch from the garage, and filled it with shoes, boots, gloves, hats, etc. I added hooks under the mirror and a red bench to keep my purse on. I moved a lamp and an enamel tray for keys, wallets, etc. onto the hutch top.
I like the way the hutch creates a separation of the entry and the living room. I have many more changes planned too as the weather gets warmer.
Have a good day! SUE
