We have a wraparound staircase in our entryway that creates an awkward nook where we’ve had a coat rack for years. But with the kids growing up, they’re not quite able to reach the hooks.
I’ve decided to build a custom bench that follows the angle of the staircase and then install hooks so they can make better use of the space for coats and backpacks.
Skill: 1/5
Cost: $75
Estimated time: 2 hours
