Check out the Mudroom Alternative my husband (Bryce) created out our backdoor, in the garage.
I must shout this, MY HUSBAND IS WONDERFUL! He really is the artist in the family. He thinks it, and then is able to create it. Me, I see it, and copy it.
The shelves are beautifully built, functional oak. We each have our own cubby. We have a shelf for helmets, thermos', gloves, etc... Then we have a tall section with hooks for bags, jackets, etc...Finally we have the grated bottom, this is a great place for our rubber boots.
In addition to us having our own 'cubby', we utliized the side for essentials like a papertowel dispenser or bug spray. The top shelves are for those not often used items like party trays or large stock pots. And don't forget the area for our recycles, just out the door.
As we are getting ready for a 'arctic air' here, I dug up some spring & summer images to warm me up.
Having house plants is a lost art. To quote my brother "that's so 70's", but I don't care.
I love to be surrounded by plants. I have many potted, and I love to be creative with their containers, hence the mop bucket.
I also have a hard time trimming and throwing away, so I am always rooting new starts. I have a wide collection of pitchers that I use, when they are not displaying my beautiful oak leaf hydrangea cuttings.
