IKEA Hack for Paper Clutter
Create a place on your entryway wall to keep annoying but all-important bills and receipts using IKEA TOSTERUP door handles. They're available in three different colors: White, black and red and come in packs of two for $15.99.
Don't have tools to hang them? No problem, if you pick up a pack of Sugru. It's a moldable glue that turns into flexible rubber after 24 hours. To remove later, cut the bulk of it off with a knife and scrape off the remaining.

Refresh an Entryway Mirror
We believe an entryway mirror is a must-have if you don't want to fly out the door with your coat buttoned wrong or updo askew. But you don't have to go into debt to buy one that's impossibly chic. Instead, give an IKEA LANGESUND mirror (it costs $27.99) a splash of watercolor using glass paint.

Turn a Kitchen Cabinet Into Midcentury Furniture
Creating entryway storage to fit a tiny alcove is a snap using an IKEA kitchen cabinet. Why is that, you might be asking? They're available in a wide range of sizes and shapes.
The trick is to make whatever you pick look like living room furniture, like this midcentury-inspired kitchen cabinet hack. While it combines IKEA pieces only available overseas — METOD and HYTTAN, you can recreate it with a SEKTION wall unit, ASKERSUND door, and MDF board.

Create Tons of Entryway Storage
If you're not in the know, IKEA sells several different shoe cabinets perfect for small entryways. TRONES are a favorite for three reasons. First, price: A set of three cabinets costs $39.99. Second, size: They're slim and compact. And third, versatility: You can stash all of your grab-and-go things inside of them from sneakers to umbrellas.
But how do you make these affordable plastic cabinets look expensive? Add a wood topper.
