After: Two benches, 10 wall hooks, and a shallow ledge provide storage aplenty on a backdrop of classic double-panel wainscoting.
When everyone in the family is constantly coming and going, the absence of an organized drop spot can really take a toll. In Jami and Mark Nato's 1922 home, in Kansas City, Missouri, a lack of storage at the front entry made the adjacent dining room a dumping ground for their three young children's backpacks, boots, and jackets. Their solution: Make the most of the foyer's ample wall space by using it to create a makeshift mudroom.
