A small, sun filled space near the entryway and right off the Family Room, is our go-to spot for keeping what we need to head out the door.
Because the space is tiny, organization is simple, but key. A clever coat rack fashioned from iron horse shoes is sturdy and keeps our raincoats, sweatshirts, straw hats and LL Bean totes readily accessible. A vintage harvest basket corrals our favorite baseball caps, and in winter, gloves and knit hats. A metal tray on the floor is an efficient way to contain the inevitable dirt and muck from garden and rain boots. An old wooden plank from Maine, with a hand engraved fish, and a small boat flag, while not necessary for keeping clutter in check, provide a nice finishing touch.
