I've never lived in a house with a mudroom, but I love, love, LOVE the idea of having a space dedicate to taking off muddy hiking boots or snow-covered coats after a day's adventure. It just seems so... practical. And I like that.
What I like even more, though, is this super colorful mudroom makeover from Jacinda at Prudent Baby. It's full of smart storage and clever DIY flourishes (like the bench cushion) -- and it's totally kid-friendly! Check out more photos and details right here.
Do you have a mudroom? Do you use it as such or has it become a storage/dumping area?
