Our house does not have a back porch, mud room, coat closet, front entryway, etc. So we have nowhere to hang coats and store stuff. Except, there is a hallway right off the kitchen, and the second half has some hooks. So we use that area for a coat closet. There is no real purpose to this hallway, since it doesn't go anywhere. The attic door is off the back part of the hallway, and the bathroom is off to the right.
I'd rather not have anything in this hallway, because I just don't like seeing it all out in the open, but it is what it is. =)
It has been ignored for far too long. Here's a before:

And then put the necessary items back in:
Now I need to find a suitable container for the gloves and hats, and I'll be done. I'm much happier with this space now!
