hooks - I notice that the hooks are mounted on a backboard. Is that required or can hooks be placed directly on drywall (with an anchor)?

We found that putting the hooks on the backing board was preferable for stability.

It was approximately 30" deep. We made up for the depth by adding the pillows to the back.

The walls are painted Ralph Lauren's Cathedral Gray, the cream color on the beadboard is Ralph Lauren's Nantucket White and the trim is painted Valspar's Ultra White.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Adi Tatarko added this to Houzz Interview: Wendy's Shabby Nest
"My style is very approachable and comfortable, real not stuffy."
Shawn Gauthier added this to Corral Your Gear with a Makeshift Mudroom
Have a small nook space? Transform it into functional mudroom storage with hooks and baskets for shoes and odds and ends.
Dana Miller added this to Ditch a Door to Open a Space
Create a mini mudroom in a closet by removing the door, then adding wall hooks, padded seating and open storage under a built-in bench. This is a great way to turn an underutilized closet into a multifunctional space.
Or perhaps keeping a laundry basket under a bench near the door will remind your family to keep their shoes stowed.
8. Carve out a coat tree. If you have an underused nook or a cupboard, you can take the door off and use it as a handy place for coats and shoes. To really give it that English cottage style, add beadboard paneling (painted in soft pastels) to the walls or some vintage floral wallpaper. A seat cushion in pretty florals or soft stripes is the perfect place for sitting when you're taking off your shoes.
