Hallway Landing Zone




About: We're Mother Daughter Projects, sharing our DIY adventures as we learn to maintain, improve, decorate, and use tech in our homes.

Steph needed a place to keep her keys, purse, shoes and more so we created a landing zone/mudroom in a hall closet at her house.

Step 1: Hall Closet Before- Removed Doors

We removed the doors and shelving from inside the closet and painted.

Step 2: Made Shelf and Bottom Cushion

The bench is a Craigslist find that consists of two sets of upper kitchen cabinets and we made a foam fabric covered cushion. It fits perfectly inside the closet!

The shelf was made with boards cut to the width of the closet supported by decorative brackets which were found at a yard sale.

Step 3: Put It All Together

We added coat hooks, decorative decal, and other accessories to complete the look.

Step 4: Enjoy!

The green frame on the left was a Pinterest project to hold Steph's keys.

That's it. Check out our website for more details!
