Having a whole closet right by your front door is amazing for storage if you're a family with kids, but not if that closet comes with big outdated mirrored doors that don't work well and don't allow you to see what's actually in the closet. Jen got to work, transforming this old closet into a very stylish — but most importantly functional — welcoming storage spot for her family.

From Jen:

This all started because this closet was not working for us. Two, large, heavy, mirrored doors. Why didn’t they work?

The doors, when fully opened, only ever exposed half of the closet. It made it hard to organize/see/know what was actually in there. They were heavy, screechy, ugly, and not toddler friendly.

Our new bench and hooks are super kid friendly and full of function, and it's now impossible to lose anything, while the space is so much more open, bright and welcoming. Perfect for the front door, and first impression for our guests.

Thank you Jen! See more on Jen's blog.
