DIY Hall Tree Project

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!! 🙂  

Planning

These were a few must-haves I needed in the hall tree:

  1. Shiplap-Poplar Plywood cut down
  2. Storage for our winter hats, gloves, and miscellaneous smaller items
  3. Hooks for coats/hats
  4. A bench to sit on
  5. Places for shoes and tall boots
  6. Shiplap

So I sketched out what I wanted and we determined the size of the boards we needed:

Lumber

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!

Shiplap

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 🙂

Hooks

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!

Cube Organizer

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.

Bench

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!

Shoe Shelf

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!

  1. This is an absolutely stunning Emily! I love the modern farmhouse, almost beachy vibe. I featured this project at this week’s Creative Circle link party! Thank you for sharing with and I hope you join us again soon 🙂

    I am a retired veteran with a family & we are currently staying in a veterans homeless shelter due to some unfortunate circumstances at our old home.
    The home we are currently at provides shelter for about 15 persons as of right now. While there is closet space for some, not all residents have the space to hang/store their clothing items. Could I please get a set of these plans emailed to me by chance?

      Hi Dennis! Unfortunately, I didn’t create any detailed plans for this project. We kind of just winged it… so sorry, but thanks for reaching out.

  3. Love this project! Is it possible to get a list of the measurements you used? Thanks very much!

    1. LiliesandLife

      Sarah, thank you! Our Hall Tree is 90″ L and 75″ high. The bench is 16 1/4″ D and the shelf is 14″ D. I hope this helps. If you end up making this, I would love to see a picture 🙂

  4. I love this! This totally inspired my husband and I to make this in our mudroom! I NEED something like this for my kiddos and of their things! Do you mind sharing what kind of lumber you used for the shelves/bench? Thank you!

    1. LiliesandLife

      Ashleigh, we used pine but MDF would work too! For the shelves we bought 14″ wide lumbar so that our cube organizers would fit (they are 13″). For the bench we actually bought two pieces of pine lumbar 7.5″ wide and then another piece for the dark gray in 1.75″ wide. I hope that makes sense! Let me know if you have any other questions. We definitely trial and errored this piece so I don’t have the exact measurements of everything ha!
