Most houses in Maine have a mudroom, a place to hang soggy jackets and leave muddy shoes. Our mudroom is what you would call multi purpose and just may be the most used room in the house. Sure, it’s where we leave our wet and dirty things and lace up our boots in winter, but it’s much more.
Hanging above the bench is a piece I found at the Union Antique Show several years ago. Not only does it provide a few more hooks for winter wear, the cubbies are perfect for all those little containers I use for flowers.
There is a sink in the mudroom which is great for rinsing off hands gotten dirty gardening and for arranging flowers. Storage above and below hold an overflow of bottles and whatever else anyone wants to stick in them. It’s probably better not to open the bottom cabinet!
lots and lots of dishes. I have to confess that dishes and glassware are my absolute weakness and having so much storage has made it very easy to add piece after piece, however, unless something is gotten rid of there’s no where else to put anything. Do you find yourself having that problem?
Today Alma at The Tablescaper invited her readers to post about where we put it all, so I’m off to see what solutions others have for their collections. Won’t you join me?
