mudroom fix-up

This is what I had in mind when we built our mudroom.
Straight out of Pottery Barn.
Unfortunately, this is what our mudroom looks like.
A complete eyesore. Bags, toys & stuff piled everywhere!
Seriously. I did not "prep" it to look this bad.
So I went to work. I cleared off everything & added these baskets
to help organize the smaller things.
I made individual label tags to help me remember
where I stashed everything.
I decorated the top with knick knacks that I found around the house, including the moss balls I made a few weeks ago.
And voila! Sooo much better! Now if only I can keep it looking this good.
I added an extra bucket on the bench with high hopes of throwing random things in it, rather than letting it collect on the bench. Wish me luck!


Keeping It Simple

  1. Stopping by from the Met Monday party!! I totally understand what you mean about trying to keep it that way. Mine will look good until the boys and hubby comes home!!! This looks great and I must say I like your black one better than the white inspiration!! I really like the labels. I need to do that in our laundry room!

  2. Good luck keeping it that way - it's got great bones!

  3. How LOVELY! It looks great, Tiffany! I love those baskets and your little labels -- they're adorable! Great job!

  4. That looks so good. I like yours better that Pottery Barn. Great job.

  5. I like yours better!!!! I can keep something straight for about a day that's it!

  6. This looks great! Pottery Barn has nothing on you!! Do you hire out? I really need some organization...

  7. Visiting from Between Naps on the Porch. Nice job--darling labels! Hope it works for you!

  8. turned out so cute!! love that tagging on the baskets :)
