Wanted to check. Thanks. I used to get them from I believe Pottery Barn, but $$$; then saw something similar at Target as well. Thanks and nice job!

Might you know what is the minimum width for a mudroom? I have a door leading from the garage into my home, that opens to a narrow hallway leading to the main floor. Ideal for a mudroom, just don't know if it is wide enough to put a a bench, some hooks (as you have done) and a small rug.

This is Sherwood Tan by Benjamin Moore. It's a little lighter and I used it throughout most of the open areas in the house. http://emilyaclark.blogspot.com/2012/01/our-last-house-paint-colors.html

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Color and Character in North Carolina
A gallery of framed children's artwork lends a sentimental touch to the simple entryway. A row of hooks is at just the right level for her children to hang up bags and coats.
Lisa Frederick added this to How to Curate Kids' Art
The mudroom is the first point of entry for a lot of kids, so mount their prized artwork where they can see it right away. Choosing a variety of frames in a single color, though varying their visual weight, ties the potpourri of pieces together.Get more ideas for fun and colorful kids' spaces
Alison Hodgson added this to Decluttering — Don't Let Fear Hold You Back
During my housewide decluttering, everything was in play. Even my children's art and writing was sorted. If only gluing was involved, I was able to part with it, but if it was personal writing, especially if it said, "Mama, I love you," it automatically went into the "keep" box.Family portraits the children drew were also dear to me. I loved seeing each child's vision of who we were through the years. In the portraits our bodies might be only big circles, or they might be sophisticated enough to have arms and legs with hands and feet. In some we floated in the air, and in others we were lined up neatly: Paul, me, Christopher and Lydia and then, when she came, Eden. One thing that was consistent in every single one is that we all wore enormous smiles. In those portraits nothing got us down.My friend Jane, who was helping me declutter, said, "Honey, you can't keep every card your kids made you." I told her I could — everything fit into two medium Rubbermaid tubs — and I did ... for two more months, until I lost it all in a house fire.The day of the fire, when Jane called, before she could say a word, I said, "Well, I finally got rid of those two containers of papers you were bitching about!"In the early days after the fire, I was just so happy to be alive and to have my whole family safe. What we had lost was merely stuff, and I could live with that. Truth be told, I felt a strange relief. Of course I was in shock, and I hadn't yet taken an accounting of what had been lost, but even so, after a lifetime of tension with my belongings, I mostly felt free. I had spent the better part of a year carefully sorting through my possessions before the fire. I had made thousands of decisions on what could go and what I had to keep. It was only after I lost everything that I realized how much of my resistance in parting with my possessions came from a fear of making a mistake. Once it was all gone, I was no longer afraid.A Wondrous ThoughtHas this ever happened to you? You find something cool. You're not exactly sure what you're going to do with it, but you love it; you know you'll think of something. Maybe it needs a bit of work but, well, you'll get to it. Except you don't. For years it sits in a corner collecting dust; you may even move it to another house ... or two, but you're so going to do something with it someday. And then finally you face it: You won't. So you donate or give it away and practically the next day you see online or in a magazine the very thing, but spruced up or used creatively in a way that would have been perfect if only you hadn't gotten rid of it! If you're anything like me, you try to blow it off: "Oh, well," but you don't really. It comes to mind from time to time and there's that, "Ugh! I should have kept that." Just a few weeks before the fire, I found an antique rug at a sale. I debated about buying it but decided to let it go. Within a couple days I knew I had made a mistake: It was beautiful, such a good deal and, now that I was thinking about it, I could have used it in three different places. What had I been thinking? "Oh well," I said, and forgot about it, but then a few months after the fire, I remembered. "Ugh!" Why didn't I buy that?" I thought.
Alison Hodgson added this to Do It for the Kids! A Few Routines Help a Home Run More Smoothly
Set up an evening routine. Train the children to pack backpacks and lunches (as much as possible) the night before. Have them double check the location of their coats and shoes and any accessories. Tip: For younger kids, make sure to hang hooks low so they can reach them without help.
