We don't have a proper entryway to our apartment--the door just opens into the living room, but we do have a sort of entryway-like area by the door, and it's in need of some improvements. With multiple winter jackets and pairs of boots between myself and my boyfriend the space has become quite cluttered.
I'm trying to think of clever (and attractive) ways to make the most of this space. To start, I've already begun painting the door a glossy black (I did the first coat today and will tackle the second tomorrow). I'd also like to upgrade the hooks to something that will better hold bulky, winter jackets. Does anyone else have any ideas for how we can make this area better organized and less of an eyesore?
