Festive Mudroom

Yesterday I showed you our mantel.  Today you will get to see our mudroom’s holiday getup.

I got creative with the chalkboard.  And by creative, I mean I borrowed another idea from Pinterest.


The bench area received a few holiday touches as well…


I love my vintage egg basket for storing gloves/hats/scarves.  Ike likes the easy access to them when he’s bored and wants to cause trouble. Not that he ever gets in trouble.


I purchased the two nutcrackers from Hobby Lobby last year.  I originally spray painted them cream but decided they were a better fit for our mudroom this year.  Nothing a little red spray paint can’t fix.  I have a problem. 

I have seen similar nutcrackers from West Elm costing at least $20 a piece.  These were $3 each.  Spray paint is $3.  Win.

I replaced two of the frames with some snow art that I whipped up in Photoshop and Word.  Fancy.



Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.  Is it snowing where you’re at?  I really want it to snow.  Just for December.  Then I want it to be 80.  The end.
