I made our key cabinet before we moved in. It was an old medicine cabinet that I painted and put new hardware on. I also added hooks under one shelf for the keys. The cabinet works well for us, it holds keys and "stuff" that we would need when we leave. It also has a mirrored door, which is great for a final check on the way out the door. In total, it cost about $15 and it works pretty well for us! Definitely needs to be cleaned out this week though.
Gloves for dog walking up top, a fish painted by our dog hanging on the side, and an angel to keep us safe on the door knob.
Inside we keep dog waste bags, a kit to re-key our front door (not sure where else to keep it where I would find it,) bug spray, flashlight, extra dog collar, pool passes, keys and a tape measure.
Next to the key cabinet is a hook for the dog stuff. Leashes, harness, waste bags with a set of keys on it, and a little argyle fleece for chilly days.
Below the cabinet and dog hook we have a shoe tray to try and contain the excess amount of salt that is used on the property, to be honest, it doesn't do half the job I thought it would.
Our "back hall" is all of +/-10 ft from the "front hall." It used to be home to a coat tree. I couldn't stand it and my brother-in-law was looking for exactly what we had. Now it is his and it fits much better in his home than ours. I didn't know exactly what would take it's place, so for about a year we had no home for our regularly used coats, etc.
Then I found these little gems at Ikea for $9.99. I bought 2 and they are perfect! A bit unorganized at the moment, but that is what this week is for, right?
