A Much Needed Change...

Last weekend I decided that my house needed a entry/mud room. When we purchased our (first) house eight years ago, we only had two small boys and didn't have a clue on what we were going to need as they got older. Well, now we have three kids. And, they are growing like weeds. There are coats, backpacks, boots, shoes (oh, the shoes!), soccer bags, training clothes, soccer balls, mittens, hats, did I say boots? Well, I decided to do some much needed work on the front entry way.

I moved in the bottom half of a large hutch from the garage, and filled it with shoes, boots, gloves, hats, etc. I added hooks under the mirror and a red bench to keep my purse on. I moved a lamp and an enamel tray for keys, wallets, etc. onto the hutch top.

I like the way the hutch creates a separation of the entry and the living room. I have many more changes planned too as the weather gets warmer.

Have a good day! SUE


  1. Looks good! I've been dreaming of a bona fide mudroom lately myself. Probably because of all of the mud being tracked into the house!

  2. I love it!!! Really defines the space and gave you much needed storage. Very cool!
