I'm getting this for my hallway
We decided to get a hall tree or something similar & I think we've decided on the pieces below. They will serve several purposes:
1. The first & most obvious is for hanging coats, etc.
2. DH will store his shoes in the baskets in the bench. Then he can sit use the bench to put his shoes on. He has a bad habit of putting his foot on the bed to tie his shoe, which I hate! At this time, we don't have a storage system in place for his shoes. We have a very small closet, which makes it difficult, & I've discovered that it's hard to find shoe bags with pockets to fit men's shoes.
3. We will use the top baskets to store gloves, scarves, et.
I don't think we're going to buy these from Pottery Barn. I've found a place that makes identical ones which are less expensive & they offer other colors.
