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.
