The Instant Mudroom

The Instant Mudroom

As I look forward to the weekend, my mind always jumps to “I wonder what kind of quick project I could do this weekend?”  (Husband is now rolling his eyes.)  But really, it’s amazing what a little change can do for your home.  To get all of you into DIY weekend mode, here’s an easy project that took about an hour.

I have issues with”stuff” all over my house and porch. I love the look of the Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel “mudrooms” but they are too big and frankly too pricey to be in a porch. So, I decided to make my own out of a bookshelf that I found on Craigslist for $15.


I put contact paper (but would recommend wallpaper) on the backs of each shelf and used 3M hooks for jackets, hats, umbrellas, etc. Then I bought a standard cooking tray from Walmart and used it for boots and soccer cleats. Voila! You have an instant mudroom. Don’t forget to add fun colored baskets for extra storage.

How do you keep your entryway neat and organized? Comment below or post your photos on our Facebook wall.
