How was your Thanksgiving? I really could have used a longer break, personally….Oh well. We got back late on Saturday, and before we started decorating for Christmas, I took a few quick pictures of our Thanksgiving décor. It was basically the fall décor with a few additions.
Yeah, there’s a Christmas tree already up…Oh well. Don’t you love the candy corn starburst?
This is straight on, but it’s blurry because I was not looking pretty so I was trying to hide from the mirror
Wanna know what makes me happy? Fast, basically free, and big impact projects.
Meet our mudroom.
Okay we don’t have one. This is the total amount of area I have to work with when you first walk into our basement apartment. So I asked my mother if she was using the coat tree from our youth, and luckily she wasn’t.
It worked, but I decided to give it a little makeover to up the usefulness factor. I took off all the hooks and painted the whole thing black. Then, I bought 2 new hooks for the top, and used the ones that were there down lower, at toddler level. I also added 2 knobs below that for backpacks and dance bags.
Shoes go in the basket, and are periodically cleaned and redirected to the owners room.
Then, I added some vinyl letters just for fun, so everyone has a hook.
Voila! It’s been working great thus far in our small entry
