1. Smiling Mud Room

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Look at this pretty storage area! This is a plan brought to us by Ana White. Isn't the color beautiful? If your mud room is the least pretty room in the house, I think it deserves a shelf as gorgeous as this one.

2. Welded Console

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I am in love with this console table. Not only is it minimalist and chic, it also looks quite easy to do. If you happen to know someone who is an expert, you can ask the welder to make the legs for you and you can add the wooden piece on top after.

4. Mantel and Hooks

(Your reaction) Thank you!

One great DIY entryway idea is to display photos of your family. These would be perfect for welcoming your guests to your lovely home. You can display said photos hanging on your wall or propped on a mantel. The latter is a better idea, methinks.

5. Slim Shelf

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is a clever DIY entryway idea; I think I will steal this. We happen to have an unused shelf that is slim enough for this purpose. If you would like to do the same, other materials that you will need are only brackets, drill, and screws.

8. Entry Nook Bench

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I have no experience when it comes to making furniture but this DIY entryway idea looks simple enough that I might just try it. What Crystal did was cover a piece of plywood with batting and fabric and attach 4 spindle legs to the underside. That's it, really.

9. Deck Post Slim Console

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Much like several of the tutorials I've mentioned here, this particular idea shows a clever reuse of certain materials. The legs of this entryway table used to be deck posts. The middle section is a glass-less window.

10. Cheap Console Table

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This chic console table cost only a little over $18 to make. This cost only applies if you already have wood stain, paint, nails, and other tools, of course. But I bet you will not spend a lot even if you still end up buying those materials.

11. Gym Baskets

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This is a clever DIY entryway or mudroom idea brought to us by Martha Stewart. For this project, you will simply be hanging wire baskets to a coat rack or any wall near your door. Label each basket (according to name of family members or what things should go to them), attach to wooden rails, and call it a day.
