Terry’s Tips: The Makeshift Mud Room

December 1, 2011

The inspiration (L) and the $20 version in my home (R)

Do you have a mud room or a “dump” space in your house? It’s one of those areas where everyone comes in and leaves their stuff as soon as they walk in: shoes, jackets, backpacks, keys, mail, etc. (You know what I’m talking about.)

I have white bead board in my office, which is next to the back door. This is where everyone comes in and dumps their stuff. I found the inpiration picture to the left, and then came up with our $20.00 version.

Instead of the fancy drawers and lockers, we have hooks and baskets. It works out perfectly and saved us hundreds – even thousands – that the design/installation that the first photo might have cost. How do you organize this space in your home?
