Would really love to know the answer to whether this compass rose was painted on or if it's a decal? If painted, how do you protect this? Another coat of poly on top?

Did anyone find out about where to get this compass from? I've looked on the internet and can't find anything like it....

What is everyones opinion on wood flooring for a mudroom? Is it suitable or is slate/tiling a better choice? I want to use a hard wood and i believe it will hold up well. Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed.

We took out the hardwood b/c our boys are constantly coming w/wet& muddy& snowy clothes & shoes. We replaced w/tile that has a wood grain finish. This has been a great& practical change for us in a snowy Wisconsin winter!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Playful and Elegant in New York
The mudroom off the main entrance hall was carefully crafted to organize the odds and ends the family accumulates each day. Many of the rooms in De Chiara's home were inspired by the shelter magazines she reads voraciously, as well as ideas from friends' homes and hotel rooms she loves. Basket Liner Fabric: Continuum, Kravet Lantern: Sorenson 18 Lantern, Remains
9. Involve the whole family. Sigh. Not so easy, I know, but so important! Encourage children to fill a box with old toys and clothes to bring to a children's charity. If it seems difficult, try timing the big giveaway before a birthday or major holiday when new toys will be rolling in. Once you have purged your home, set up new systems in key areas used by all. Baskets and hooks in the entryway or mud room and bins at the foot of the stairs would be great places to start.
Houzzers want a place to transition between the indoors and out. Separate cubbies or lockers for everyone in the family keep things organized. This example has room for hanging outerwear and bags, a spot for shoes below and a special basket for other items overhead.
8. Stay busy during downtime. It is inevitable that there will be times it seems that nothing is happening. Whether due to a tight budget, workers vanishing midproject or simply a stretch of bad weather, it is important to keep your spirits up when work stalls out. Try keeping a list of simple tasks that you can do anytime. Then, when you start feeling antsy, pull out your list and get to work. Cleaning, organizing, decluttering and doing small repairs are all good places to start.
Heather Freeman Design Co. added this to Make the Most of Your Entryway
Talk about a neatnik's dream! There is a place for everything in this space. Hooks, baskets and drawers provide ample storage for coats, shoes and pet supplies.Create a makeshift mudroom
Very rarely do people change who they are. And habits take a long time to break. You can promise yourself that you will walk to the office with the mail and organize it like a responsible adult, but yet there it is, all stacked up at the front door. Why set yourself up for failure? Just accept yourself exactly as you are and make your home serve you, "bad" habits and all.
