Hallway Storage Solution

September 07, 2010


A few weeks ago I dragged home some huge old windows from a church that was doing some renovating, and since then I’ve been trying to come up with a creative yet functional way to use them.


So I came up with this idea – to use the window as a place to store coats, scarves, bags, etc. in our narrow hallway.

I found some old hooks that were laying around (previous owners had used tons of old hooks in every single closet and I love making use of them!) and spray painted them black. Then I screwed 4 of them into the window frame.


I made this simple flag banner that was leftover from a project I made for my sweet new friend Shar.

It really is so simple and no sewing necessary. I just cut out triangles from fabric and made slits for twine to go through. I found the white and gray striped fabric for 49 cents/yard and the yellow for $2.99/yard at a fabric outlet.


I also whipped up some pillow covers from the leftover fabric.


The driftwood “Beach” sign is for sale in my Etsy shop.


The bench was a yard sale find from a few years ago. It actually wasn’t for sale and the sweet old lady was using it to display her yard sale goodies. I asked if I could buy it from her. She asked how much, and I said $5. SOLD!! I snatched it up and ran to the car with it before she could change her mind!

I have a thing for benches, among other things. It was green and I recently painted it white and sanded the edges so that the original green paint would show through.

Oh, and I found that wooden Cola box at a yard sale too. Love using stuff that’s old and has tons of character!:)



And just for kicks and because they are my favorite kiddos of all time, here is a pic of Avery & Jack sharing a cold drink on a hot summer day.

Sometimes they are just too much!:)
