4. Entryway Console
Add a console table with drawers to your front entry to give yourself a place to set things on. Keep it neat by using baskets and bowls to hold change or mail. Another option is a bench with a storage compartment. Find a second hand piece of furniture and add a conversation piece at the same time. No room for a table or bench? A skinny shelf or ledge will work, too, at a fraction of the cost!
