Do you have the big blank wall by your front door? Maybe a coat rack standing there. Check out what Sadalewis did with theirs. I love the look of it and it turned out looking so professional as if it was always there. Nice to have a place to hang all the coats and backpacks, and the shelf above is just pure gorgeous. They have shared a nice tutorial for anyone that would like to do this on their big blank wall. Awesome use of wasted space.
