My daughter-in-law needed a place for all the things the grandkids bring into the house after school. She needed some kind of landing zone for backpacks, shoes, school supplies and more!
This is what we came up with. Since she is in an apartment and plans to move in the future, we built it with that in mind. It can easily be taken apart and moved to a new location.
The vertical boards on the back of the hall tree are a design element, but the center one also functions to hide the seam between the two halves of the back. In this image, you can see we are only gluing and brad nailing half of the board to the edge. When put together, the other board will slip behind this one so the seam is hidden.
My daughter-in-law and grandchildren are VERY happy with their new hall tree. It will help them to corral all the stuff they bring in from the car as it will hold all their backpacks, shoes, and more!
