The Mudroom

6.02.2009

I wanted to show you guys some more photos of our house, so let's start with..well, the beginning. Since you're all friends, I'll bring you in the way we use the most, through the garage! (Front door and formal entryway to come.)



Our house is one of those with the garage under the main living space as opposed to next to it. I don't mind this set up that much, unless we have a lot of grocery bags or suitcases we need to lug up to the first floor! So mostly we pull our cars into the garage and enter here in the basement...but the cool thing is that the previous owners built a great mud room right when you walk in.



Rug is from Ballard Designs, and the mirror used to be royal blue, but I painted it black.




I love the custom built ins that are here, they make me so happy! I just come in from work, drop my keys, bag, coat, boots, whatever and head upstairs into the kitchen (where P is usually already in the middle of cooking us dinner).
Love him too!!

  2. Love it! I wish we had a space like this in my house. Instead everthing gets dumped on the kitchen counters or on the floor by the back door!

  7. Hi, everybody! Thanks for the super sweet comments. I know, this was one of the things that sold me on the house. Its so nice having a place to dump everything. I've been wondering if I should give it a little mini-makeover, brighten it up, add more color, but I think there are higher priority spots in the house to tackle first:)
