I needed a place for everyone to throw their bags instead of the kitchen table! I used the box plans from the fancy hall tree and modified the top, adding a shelf, and changed the design to accommodate the piece of plywood I already had and wanted to use for the back. I made it in two pieces for easier transport and assembled it inside the house. I used off the shelf pine and plain plywood for this. I found the cute numbered hooks on etsy :) I took my time building it and worked on it about an hour a day while my husband watched the kids.
