It forms a nice little “L” shape to allow for a mud
room nook, but we have basically been stuffing everything we own back there.
Coats, jackets, purses, diaper bags…
hats, yoga mats, carpet remnants from Greta’s room…
… and shoes all over the ground atop a mat that was there when we moved in and any jackets that have fallen off of the 7 hooks we are currently working with.
What. A. Mess. Today was the day that I decided I couldn’t take it any longer. I cleared all the junk out and started making a plan for the space.
We have a small closet with a rod for hanging coats in it, so I am going to move all of our coats to the closet. No brainer. Because the nook is only 30 inches wide, I think that having things hanging on both sides just makes the whole space feel claustrophobic. I have some simple plans to turn this space into a place where we can still hang a few things like bags and hats, store items like our yoga mats and still look organized.
First things first, it needs a fresh coat of paint on the walls and trim. :)
