Here is the before...goodbye sad looking bi-fold doors...
The after...ahhh, that feels better...
I have had this idea in my head for a while now.  I found these cool old lockers at Antiques Downtown in Elk River, MN.
They didnt have the original lockers numbers, so I added some adhesive label holders.  Home Sweet Home.
Perfect spot to stash away cleaning supplies...and more.
And another fun spot to vignette...you know I LOVE that!
Cool old DIY sign from a local junk show and a bunch of hooks make a cubby like spost to hang your hat, coat or whatever.
A couple of little black stools for shoe storage.
And I couldnt resist this wet boot resistant welcome mat from Target.  You Have Arrived
This little entry area is just off of the new kitchen area that we updated this past summer.  Things are finally coming together around here :)

I have had this little "mini mud room" idea in my head for a while now.  What started out as a messy little closet has evolved into an area that I can be proud to welcome my guests in to for a visit.  Come peek around...

After doing so, then only will we be able to see what and how we can create an entirely new place with reduced clutter and a neater outlook. Posted: 12:02 am on March 24th
