About This Project

As a mom of 5 children, my entryway was always a mess. I decided that I was going to take things into my own hands and figure something out. I found Ana's site and I saw that Ana had this Entryway system and decided I was going to make it. So one day, I went to town and bought the material came home and started to build. I also decided, I wanted to dress the hutches up a bit, with bead board and a trim. I think that it turned out awesome. With 4 boys in the house I ended up using a heavy durable slide and cut my draws a little bit smaller. I added an entryway carpet with a rubber bottom on it in the drawers, to keep them cleaner. My children love them so much and it has helped us organize and keep the entryway cleaned.

Estimated Cost: 
$400-$500

Required Skill Level:

Nicely done! I especially like the idea of putting entryway carpet in the drawers to keep them cleaner.

love, love, love this!!!!

This is amazing! I am a mum of 4 and i am so over the morning "can't find my shoes" panic every morning! I would love to have something this big, but i don't have the room inside and our garage isn't mouse proof (kids school bags and mice just seem like it might be a bad combo). Am going with something a bit slimmer for an empty closet we have and i am definitely borrowing the carpet idea. Just a quick question, re painting... Was the paint gloss, matte? And with the poly, has it made it go yellow at all? .... oh i am so excited to get mine done!!!! Thanku for sharing!

Thank you

Thank You, I love walking by and looking at them and seeing how my entryway looks now. It was totally worth all the work. As for the paint, I used the aura in egg shell. Then the clear coat was clear and did not yellow the paint at all. I went to my paint store and asked him for a clear coat that did not yellow. I can get you the name if you would like? Thank you again.
