David and I enter our home from our garage so we needed a space to organize all of our shoes and coats separate. I decided to come up with a plan to get this space organized and pretty! The Hall Tree Project was a big undertaking for us and I have all the details right here for you!
This is what this space looked like when we moved in:
Here is what it looks like now!
My dad helped us A LOT on this project so shout out to my dad, Dan!! 🙂
These were a few must-haves I needed in the hall tree:
- Shiplap-Poplar Plywood cut down
- Storage for our winter hats, gloves, and miscellaneous smaller items
- Hooks for coats/hats
- A bench to sit on
- Places for shoes and tall boots
So I sketched out what I wanted and we determined the size of the boards we needed:
We bought all of the lumber at Lowe’s with discounted gift cards and a 10% coupon. Plus Lowe’s cuts lumber for 10 cents a cut! Score!
We used a sheet of Poplar Plywood from Lowe’s and cut it into 6″X7′ strips to create the shiplap look! Even though my design style is not “farmhouse” I really wanted shiplap as the backdrop for this hall tree because; a) it looks really cool and can be modern b) It was easy to install c) I love Joanna Gaines 🙂
I bought these hooks from Target. I wanted gold to pull in the other pops of gold I have in the living room and these were perfect!

This section of the hall tree was made to store our hats, gloves, scarves and other miscellaneous items. I found these storage bins at Target and designed the shelves around the baskets.
Funny story about this bench… We initially bought the bench pieces too small. So we decided to add the gray strip of wood in between the white planks to give the bench a little color. This way we didn’t have to purchase all new lumber for the bench!
I wanted a space for all of our shoes so we create this shelving for all sizes of shoes!
Overall we really love this hall tree and I am very proud of how it turned out! If you would like more details on how we built this DIY Hall Tree send me an email!
