Well, maybe Erika can post a picture of our mud room bench.  Erika’s Mom gifted us some money to go buy a storage bench for the Hall, and so we shopped around for one.  Our a) being good Shepards of Nancy and Sal’s Generosity and b) inability to make a decision and stick with it contributed to it taking longer than expected to get one picked out and errected.

Hopefully Erika can post a picture of it for everyone to see.  Our next thing for the mudroom, I think we have the budget for it, is to make a shelving and coat hook unit for the wall above the bench.  Add a basket for umbrellas and some art on the wall and we should be golden.

Our ‘Mud Room’ is really a hall between the garage and the Kitchen.  Off it are the pantry, a 1/2 bath, the Laundry Room, and a coat closet.  It also has a cabinet above a built-in desk that has become the accumulator of all things random; from candy to mail to random papers to tools and tape.  The Dawgs also get their gourmet, pronounced gore-met, water and food in there.  Erika picked up an awesome bin for the dog food.  We can get a ginormous bag of Iams from Sams or Target or Winn-Dixie and dump the whole thing in there.  it came with a lid and a scoop!  Maybe Erika will get a picture of that too and upload it for some of you to see…

All in all the Mud Room may become our first ‘done’ room if we can just keep the built in desk clean long enough to take a picture. Oh and put up some art work too…
