The hall closet is probably one of the most frequently trafficked places in your home, but also happens to be the place that's often overlooked when it comes to design. When these DIY'ers grew sick of looking at their doorless, white hall closet, they decided to give it an upgrade — and what they did is totally adorable.
With just some plywood, fabric, and a bit of ingenuity, they were able to create a useful space that both looks good and works well for storage. See how they did it below, and prepare to get inspired to upgrade your own space.
