 i have aLwaYs wanted a run in & dump room.
:)
always!

a space right off the garage...
where all those things we're lugging in can be sifted through.

the sheer amount of mail... school papers... sports equipment... bags... shoes...
it's crazy right?!

i feel sO lucky to finally have a space just for that!

let me say... be cOmpleteLy honest here y'all...
in nO way shape or foRm...
 does this space always look clean like this.
just not possible.
it gets downright hairy sometimes!

there are just four of us...
but i thought it'd be a good idea to go ahead & go wth five cubbies.
for company... a friend... or just that crazy overflow that happens.

it's been a good thing.
i use it lots for "outgoing" things too.
goodwill bags... store returns... items friends have left at the house... yadda.

we may not need hats... gloves... and such as often... now that we're back in texas...
but they're still handy... up in the backets... just in case.
no snow here... but seriously... that houston humid cold... it's cOld!

 i went very simple & functional on the area rug in here.
because... just like all that stuff... lots of dirt & mess makes it's way in too.

of course i chose Flor.
i have used & loved it for years!
i could configure it to just the size i needed...
and i like that i can pull up a square if it gets super soiled... and rinse it clean.

gretel has her own spot in here too.
 when i need to run out... if she's not tagging along...
she has a safe & secure place to be......... nap... :).

had the cabinet built to the specs of a standard dog bed...
gave my favorite radiator grate to the trim guy...
so he could use in place of the cabinet's flat panel...
and she was set.

so simple... so glad we did it.

even recently hung a sweet piece of art in her space.
i think she loves it too.

i've got a couple ideas cooking for the space...
hoping one of them works like i want...
will for sure share just as soon as i tackle.

so that's our mudroom...
thanks for letting me share.

a place that gets loads of use & gives me loads of happiness.
