Entry way project: Part 1

Hi everyone! Since it's the beginning of the New Year, I have decided to become even more organized by focusing on our practically non-existent entry way. Our floor plan by the door is an odd one - the door opens directly into the living room. The walls on either side of the door fall into the living room and the landing to upstairs.

We determined that based on this weird layout, the best location for entryway items would be on the opposite side of the upstairs landing, in the area leading down the basement stairs.

Here's the plan:

So far, we've hung the LEKSVIK coat hooks we purchased from IKEA:

We've also purchased the picture ledge and three baskets for the large shelf to wrangle hats, scarves, and gloves, which will be hung shortly:

Tonight, we are planning on purchasing the large shelf to hold the baskets, along with matching brackets from Home Depot:

Check back to see progress!
