The Beautiful Afters!

~The Finished Product~

Gorgeous! 13 hooks, a shelf and a lift-top bench for the shoes. It also looks gorgeous from the inside!

Dan the Man, remodeler par excellence!

Another fantastic project by the ultimate craftsman.

We love this guy!

Please notice the padded lift-top bench.
Thank you, Dan! You're a genius and a gentleman!

Note that the shoes are now neatly laying in the storage bin below.

Last view of it empty...5-4-3-2-1....

This is how it looks now as we start to fill it up! Beautiful and orderly--the perfect balance between form and function.
Simply lovely!! Oh, I love this little nook!

I love that! My coat closet is about one third the size of yours... and filled with tons of the kind of stuff we don't show everybody that walks in the door.... games, the vacuum cleaner. Oh yeah..and some coats, gloves and hats too. Your closet looks like a fancy built in. *envy* : )

You are so cleaver. I hate coat closets because they end up with everything you have thrown in and the door closed. What a wonderful idea and transformation. We have a mud room, very large, I already know that room was a mistake! We are home in Colorado. Arrived to have a foot of snow greet us and church canceled on Sun morning. So fine......I miss Maui
Love You guys

Yea, that is way more cool!!!! That Dan is the MAN. I'm loving the function and prettiness. It is very Southern you know.

I've missed you. I've been insanely pulling my hair out and you know why. You sitting up there just above me in VA looking down here amused. I was a working fool and saw more Christmas this weekend than most people who live in Bethlehem. But I got the video re-done.

We're delivering the little boxes on Monday. My friend is more than overwhelmed with gratitude. They are all lined up in the front of her church.

I think you should start another blog on interior decoration. One blog is not enough :)
