Okay, so it really isn't a Mud Room at all, but hey, we have a space we can finally use at the back door! I first discussed my desire for a Mud Room here, and then talked about what would work in the space here.
So here are the before and afters, the after pictures were taken later in the day after work, so they are a bit darker..
Here are the additions to the space: small stool from Ikea, Smith and Hawken round basket with chalkboard from Target, and wall hooks from Ikea as well. We couldn't find hooks with cubbies that would fit our space like I wanted, but the hooks are great! We also added some wall art we already had, like the mirror and metal charger.
Again, the 'before'
Here we added the basket and wall hooks
I love that the hooks match the wood trim we have in the house, and it will look cute in the winter with knit hats and scarves hung on it!
I admit, I couldn't resist showing this picture, it is rare that our German Shorthair Sadie sits still for anything. I was in shock when I tried to take pictures of the basket and she strolled up and modeled next to it! I am in love with this basket! I thought I would get the rectangular one, but the circle fit the space well. The chalkboard on the basket makes it so cute!
Close up view of the chalkboard, my favorite feature! Thinking it will say 'Boots' in a month or so (sad face).
