Living in a small house, we are fortunate to have a mudroom. A room, as we enter the back door, where we can remove any "muddy" shoes or whatnottery. Our back door is the one we most often use so this room is a catch all; backpacks, shoes, coats, hats, socks, laundry, dog stuff, cleaning supplies....it goes on and on. Making it attractive and functional is a delicate balance-if not impossible.
Mav recently repurposed an old crib to replace the drying rack that was taking up valuable up floor space.
I mirror to check yourself before entering the world. Next to that is an old glass cabinet door, also repurposed, serving as a weekly calendar.
Shelves, enough said.
Cute bulletin board my niece made for me.
