Foyer, Entryway or Mudroom Storage Makeover with Minwax®

Uploaded

Struggle with enough storage for shoes, jackets and coats in your foyer or entryway? Also known (appropriately enough) as the mudroom, this area can be difficult to keep neat and tidy while allowing for enough storage space. Here's a great project idea from Minwax® for a mudroom makeover.

  1. By re-purposing an old door as a coat rack with added storage, you can improve both the looks and function of your entryway with relative ease. Seek out an old wooden door, an unfinished wood storage piece, and a simple shelf with a few hooks that will be used as coat hangers.
  2. You'll need to sand the door down initially to remove the original finish. Then, you can get to staining the door, chest and shelf with your favorite Minwax® Wood Finish™ color. You can protect the finish from moisture and have a long-lasting shine with Minwax® Helmsman Spar Urethane. It's specially formulated for exterior or interior wood that is exposed to sunlight, water, or temperature changes common to the foyer area.
  3. After drying, add your shelf and coat hooks, and attach the pieces together.
