Mud Room

Now that we have a preschooler, our house & garage is starting to clutter up with backpacks, shoes & papers. I wanted to make a designated area to hold this ‘overflow’ & try out a new Modge Podge project. My first step, rip up some old books! I’ve seen this DIY project done on HOUZZ and verious blogs. It looks so smart! Literally all I did was glue the pages in random order onto the garage wall marking out a nice spot to drop stuff when we got out of the car. I think it turned out great & it only took me about 2 hours on & off!

I found the wood creates at Beverly’s for $3.50! And the letters (& sign and B) for $1 each, nice. I added old shower curtain hooks to hang jackets up and the shelves for storage of rain boots or other once a year items.

Chalk Board Frame

A friend got me this frame (which had a mirror in it) from an antiques store for $4. I sprayed it white & have meant to put it up in our home for some time. I just can’t find the place! But the chalkboard paint has been calling my name & I ditched the mirror & hung this beauty on our front porch to write notes to dinner guests & play dates. Love it!
