Don’t pay the high price when you can totally make this DIY Storage Ladder yourself by following this easy step by step tutorial by Clean and Scentsible.

These crates corral and contain all the shoes, hats, gloves and mudroom accessories plus the bench provides a generous spot to sit while putting on those shoes. The shoe storage bench fits just inside our back-door mudroom area. You could adjust these plans for a shorter bench, maybe your space will accommodate just two or three crates and that would be perfect.

 

6. Hidden Key Storage

Do you always lose your keys? To be quite honest, I used to lose my keys all the time because I didn’t have a proper place for them to live. I’ve seen all types of systems, but I think I like the hanging system the best. Keys in a bowl tend to get tangled up with other stuff, which makes them easy targets to get lost in a junk pile. With this organization system from Planq-studio, the keys are cleverly hidden at the back of an artwork. You won’t see it in plain sight especially when the front entry is the first impression of the home.
