Mini Mud Room

In our hallway, right next to our front door, is a tiny nook which usually looks like a shoe graveyard. What a perfect little spot to make a small mudroom for my small mud monster Liam. A place where he can get dressed to go outside and keep his shoes, backpack, coats, hats and gloves. Just in time for winter!

Hallway Intervention | How to Dress Up Your Radiator

Our front hallway was an eyesore. It’s not very big, and quickly our ugly brown radiator became a catch all for junk; from wet winter boot liners in the winter to garden gloves, and running shoes in the summer. It needed some sprucing up, and I needed some cheering up. I had been to a friend’s house where she had painted her radiators pink in her daughter’s room and I was immediately inspired. Who says the radiator had to stay the builder brown that it had been since the house was built in 1910?
