Prior to this little upgrade we had a pretty drab entryway. There weren't any places to hang coats or purses and it was just a long empty wall.
And got right to work. As you can see in the above picture, there are screws sticking out from the boards. These are for the future knobs I chose as hangers. I know that hooks are the normal choice, but I find that they can rip clothing or you run into them with your shoulder. No? I'm just clumsy then.
I think the lesson we learned is that the sheets of plywood might have been worth the money. Just something to consider for all of you diyers.
