Upcycle Challenge – “Hallway Envy” – Inspiration

Now that I have revealed to the world the fabulous piece I found at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for the Upcycle Challenge for the Toronto Home Show, I have to decide what I am going to do with it!!

The theme for this year’s challenge is Hallway Envy.  We all know how entryways can get very messy… especially with kiddos.

Many people don’t have a closet right when you walk into the house. Boots, backpacks, hats, mitts, jackets, umbrellas can be found randomly thrown about. With this in mind, storage is the main priority for this piece.

I want to turn this oddball piece into something that is functional with tons of storage while being trendy and beautiful. This piece has seen better days, but I see it’s potential and can’t wait to get started on it!!

While I was at the ReStore, I spotted this wall and took a pic of it because it was so inspiring.  I’m going to try to incorporate this look some how into the piece.
