I’m going to be really honest with you guys right now–I really, really, really dislike photographing our mudroom. It’s seriously the most annoying thing ever because our mudroom is teeny TINY. Really, there just isn’t enough room for me, the camera and my tripod. Plus our mudroom doesn’t get a ton of natural light, which makes it even more tricky. I’m embarrassed to say that it honestly took me hours to get the photos for today’s blog post because I just kept fidgeting with my camera and the settings trying to get a better shot. And by the time I was finally done, I felt SO frustrated because I wasn’t loving how the photos turned out. I feel like they don’t do this cute little mudroom justice, and I’m honestly hesitant to even share this post. I probably shouldn’t be telling you all this, but I like to keep it real around here so there ya have it. Oy! Anyway, I decided to go ahead and roll with it, so here we are. Besides, I’ve actually been waiting to share this space because I painted it a few months ago and I love how it brightened up this little room.
I love having baskets in our mudroom because they do great to disguise all the stuff. One of the large wicker baskets holds all our hats and another one has lots of random things like extra socks (because who wants to go upstairs to get socks?!) and sunglasses. I love how they hide everything and make it look clean and organized.
This cute coat rack is from Hobby Lobby. I found it a couple years ago and I love it. It’s just the right size for this small mudroom. And if you’re wondering about that small vintage suitcase, I actually spray painted it white. It was a very unappealing soft beige color, so I had to freshen it up a bit.
This tiny mudroom is what you see when you walk in from our garage. It’s adjacent to our living room and really makes the best drop-zone for any and all things. It’s a small space for sure, but it’s SO useful and I’m grateful we have it. I just wish I could get better photos to show you all of the sides of the room, including the little coat rack I have behind the doors. But it’s pretty much a Christmas miracle that I was able to get these photos to share with you guys (this has only happened once before!) so I’ll take that as a win. It’s a mediocre win, but that still counts.
SO glad you dropped by the blog today. Here’s a few other snazzy posts you might enjoy:
