Life has been a little crazy here. We actually had some rain free days this week. When I wasn't painting, there was always garden work. Blogging hasn't been high on the list but I wanted to jump in quick and ask for some advice. Maybe later today, I can write one of the posts that is rattling around my head.
I'd love to have some ideas on how to make the best use of our new mud room. It is small (just over 6 foot by 5 foot) - a glorified closet really.
A door opens up to the porch, hopefully the direction the children come in to drop their shoes here.
In the other direction, you see the steps down to the basement to my laundry area and the doorway into the dining area and our new "big room". And a shoe pile already in progress!
On the must list is:
Lots of hooks, both high and low
Shelves for containers of gloves, hats, etc.
A place for balls, bike helmets, etc.
A bench to sit and pull off shoes
Shelves for shoes and boots
If you have any suggestions, photos for inspiration, even good websites with ideas, please share. I don't normally visit interior design/decorating sites since it usually just promotes discontent in my lack of decorating ability. But now I wish I had some good sources of inspiration.
