My husband and I had been talking about our “mudroom” situation for months now. This picture doesn’t do the usual chaos justice, but we’ve have shoes all over the place, and now that it’s getting cold, we’re getting more coats. And my son’s backpack, lunchbox, and my bag do not have a home. I’ve shown pictures/ideas to my husband and we’ve talked about putting it in the laundry room, I wanted to have lockers, but behind the door is just the most convenient place.
So I went to a conference last week, and when I came home, I found this beautiful handy work of my husband! All the pieces were bought at Menard’s. He measured and cut the boards to fit. He took a day off work to get all the materials, and look at my Pinterest board and put it together.
It fills all of our needs, and then some! He did an awesome job, and gets a big gold star from me! A place for all coats, shoes, backpacks, and even a little storage at the top for hats or lunchboxes.
I love that everything has a home and I am no longer tripping over shoes, bags or coats. Now if we could just get the kids to put their shoes away when we get home. 🙂
How’s your mudroom coming along? Let me know!
