When we put the addition on our house two years ago, we knew we wanted a mudroom – a space to collect coats, bags, shoes…and the literal mud that is tracked in.
And here are some pictures of the final outcome if you’d care to see…
The cotton awning stripe rug is from Dash and Albert. It’s not technically an indoor/outdoor rug, but it washes easily in the washing machine, and it’s inexpensive and soft.
The drawings on the wall are from my childhood, and I love seeing them every day as I come and go.
An antique bureau serves as the dumping ground for “stuff” as we come and go. We found it at an estate sale – solid pine, and I’m told it is over 100yers old. It fits perfectly, as if it were made for that space. The wooden tray on top holds key, sunglasses, spare change. The drawers hold anything from umbrellas, to flashlights, to extra diapers.
There is a cubby nook to the side with bench, hooks, shoe storage below and storage bins above.
We love having this spec to serve as a collecting ground for shoes, coats, bags. Though it doesn’t always look this clean!
