Your entryway should be an inviting space that welcomes your family and friends “home”…however…in this busy world it is easy for the entryway to turn into a catch all for paperwork, jackets, backpacks and more.

Better Homes and Gardens has a lot of great ideas on how you can transform any bookcase into the perfect piece for your entryway.
