In our last house, I created this Rustic Entryway Organizer. It's been doing an amazing job and after almost a year using it, we can't imagine not having it or something like that by our entrance door. I took inspiration from beautiful organizers that I found on Etsy. When we moved to a new house, the wall by the door had very limited space and our horizontal organizer couldn't fit. Not a big deal I thought and designed a vertical version of our popular Rustic Entryway Organizer. DIY Entryway Organizer turned out spectacular! And I've got my friends fighting over who will take the horizontal one that we no longer need 😉 I guess that means success! To make this second version I used only scrap wood and hooks that I already had from the previous one.
Time spent: 1 hour
- Common board (in my case it's 1x12x21)
- Scrap planks
- Ceiling hooks
- Wall hooks
- Minwax stain (as usual, I mixed Provincial and Weathered Oak in 70/30 proportion)
- Screws and nails
- Sanding block

- Measure the scraps. You'd want to measure your wall first to make sure it fits and you make it the right size.
- Align the scraps, play with a layout and choose best for you
- Cut wood to adjusted length
- Sand the boards. I started sanding with P80 but then realized hand sanding is better for this project.
- Put parts together with screws and nails.
- Set up hooks
- Stain your organizer. You can stain before you assemble it but I prefer to do it as the last step to make sure all pocket holes from screws are also dark.
DIY Vertical Entryway Organizer is a super easy less than an hour project. I really hope you will try it. Let me know in the comments how it went and send me pictures! I love to see what you created!
