mud room

Years ago, I illustrated this mud room entry for J.McLaughlin and still love it today!
As home-comings approach and we bring out boots and Fall attire, why not create a “mud room” of your own. A welcome bench and a rug to rally home spirited muddy feet and paws, simple hooks to hang jackets, and a spot for soggy umbrellas provide order to any entry. Warm up your entry with a plaid or paint it a warm brown or khaki tone.

How nice to have an entry like this one! I rather love the simplicity of organized bins and cubbies for families. Although I do not have a mud room, I do have a shelf for shoes and a garage for balls and sports equipment.

Do you have a welcome entry for muddy paws and feet?
What would your mud room look like?
