This is the door where all of our friends come in.

And the really good ones don’t even knock.

This is the place where even though there are basket and bags labeled to organize the laundry, there is always a pile on the floor in front of the washer.


If you come through the side door, you are already a friend, so you won’t mind the laundry pile right?

This is the place where we keep vintage treasures to remind us of our past.

Laundry Room Decorating

This is where are the school papers pile up, the coupons get stored and the mail is sorted.

Under that little door is where all of Hubby’s stuff is and there are even plugs to keep everything charged.

Mudroom Desk and Command Center

This is the place where invitations are posted that I hope I don’t forget to R.S.V.P. to.

Mudroom Bulletin Board

This is the freezer where there is still a free Thanksgiving Turkey that I really need to cook, ice cream and frozen pizza when there is no time for a real dinner.

Combined Laundry Room and Mudroom

And this is the place where all of the coats and bags are hung, the shoes and cleats are stored and the gloves and hats try to stay corralled.

Mudroom Built-in Cubbies

And this is where you should hang your coat when you come in the side door.

Mudroom Entryway and Hooks

This is the room where the messy part of life piles up and the dirt tracks into the most.

This is the room that used to be one bay of our garage and we converted into a mudroom and laundry room.

This is the room I am so thankful to have in our home.

Wishing you a blessed day and thank you so much for reading.
