A Place to Hang My Hat

I have been planning on creating an area where I could keep the coats/jackets sweaters appropriate for the season so they aren't all hanging on a chair in the office, or in the office closet. I also wanted an area to hold my commonly used shoes, and where I could sit to put them on instead of the couch or living room chair where I had the coffee table in the way.

Last month I did a lot of internet trolling and found a bench I liked with the bonus that it had baskets to hold my hats, scarves and gloves. These were held in the magazine rack of an end table  that had been left in the house when I bought it. This is the bench I bought. It came as a kit and I put it together (picture doesn't show baskets installed below the sitting area).

I moved the drop-leaf table beside Birdie's cage and on which I had fed Fuzzy his canned food; Rita can't make the jump so I had been feeding her on the floor anyway, so I moved all the cat feeding stations to floor level. I have used the bench for several weeks in that spot to make sure it was where I wanted it. I  Last week I decided to put up the coat rack that Cop Car and her HH had given the Ex and me long ago.

I really like the way the set up looks and it is very handy and much more convenient..

What a nifty place to hold your outerwear, Bogie. Nice!

Very nice. Better than ours, which is chairs, because the hanging space near the front door has been taken over with dog stuff. Time to whittle that down again I think.
