cubbies- have with out-of-season flip through a hinged closet system. The board with hooks can be slipped off of notch to enter. Inside would be a few hinged coat hangers (for bulky winter and rain coats & pants), a clothing ladder (for draping the less bulky outdoor clothing), and a peg-hole rack (for things like hats, scarves etc.).
Beadboard Hall Tree with 4 upper and lower cubbies by TopShelfWoodworx on Etsy.com. This one is 53" wide, but can be custom ordered in a different size or number of cubbies, an enclosed lift-top bench, different color, etc. Love it!
