Our back door is a bit of mess. We have only a small coat rack (which bought at a shop down the road from us when we lived in St. Albans) that can't cope with all of our coats. Dad made us two new coat racks that we hope to hang up soon, and he made us a new bench. Our hope is that the bench contains our shoes and also gives us a place to put a basket for hats and mittens.
The kids "helped" their Grandpa find the wall studs, measure, and of course drill. Here they are on the new bench.
