Organized Entryway - UPDATED!

Our new home has quite a large entryway.  I have been scouring Pinterest looking for ideas to decorate it.  It's not done yet.  I still need to get photos of the family, but the basics are there.

Before -

After - 

The Bench - I love this bench.  I got it at HomeGoods.  I wanted something that would be comfortable to sit on when putting on your shoes.  I LOVE that it has drawers in the bottom.  That will be perfect when cold weather comes around again for storing hats, gloves, and scarves!

The Cabinet - This is not just any cabinet.  This is a shoe cabinet from IKEA.  As soon as I saw this, I knew I wanted it.  It was the perfect fit for the hallway and was a way to keep shoes ORGANIZED by the front door.  With 7 people, we have a LOT of shoes and they tend to pile up quickly.  I love that we can not only store our shoes, but they are not visible, so it always looks clean and tidy when we have people over.  In the top drawer we have a dish to put our keys, store our sunglasses, hand sanitizer, gum, and other little things we might need when we head out the door.

The Coat Rack - The  Coat Rack I had in my previous house.  I purchased it on Amazon (LOVE AMAZON!!!)  

My plan is to add 6 11x14 photos over the bench.  Kind of like this but only 6 photos.  

I also want to hang canvases on the opposite wall of each of the children.  I have canvases of my children, but don't have any of my new step-daughters.  We are going to take family photos in a few weeks, so I will get them then.

I would love to see some of the things you have done with your entry way. Leave a comment below so everyone can see too!


Here are the photos that I got hung up.

And for winter I also added a boot tray right behind the front door to put all of our wet shoes and boots on to dry.
