Beside the front door, we have this odd partial wall with a pillar at the end. Its just big enough to be in the way but not big enough to create any sort of visual separation between the entry and the living room. I thought about tearing it out but it was too much work.
On to plan B. I measured and realized I could buy an Ikea Expedite book case and plop it onto the ledge and secure it on the bottom with some brackets. Boom. Instant wall with lots of storage.
These handy dandy little brackets came with the shelf. All we had to do was screw it down.
They even came was some covers to to hide the clips.
And even better, when your sitting in the living room, your not staring at at this big ugly pile of coats hanging on the wall.
