So, for those of you who have never been to the house, this was previously open to the living room. Every time someone opened the back door, we lost heat or air conditioning in the TV area. This wall is insulated, making both rooms very comfortable, and quieter. This is a laying area for chickens from the chicken house across the street. It works well for shoes, and the best part, it was free.
The plan is for each child to come in, remove their shoes, and hang up their stuff before entering the house. G was home sick when I took these, that is why there is only one coat and one backpack pictured above.
If you go back to the previous posts of the before shots, you can see that we split the row of windows in the living room. The mud room is extremely bright and cheery with this window and the side window. I want to know if y'all would put up some valances or leave the windows plain?
