I found a couple good organizing ideas from Martha...
We have a very dysfunctional back hallway that we use on a daily basis. I dream of having a big mudroom with all the trimmings someday, for now I'm collecting ideas to make ours function better. I love this metal mailbox idea to hold keys and stuff from the day. The magazine holder makes a perfect coat hook.
This is another great idea for our guests that use the front door. Rectangular baking sheets would be a perfect place for wet shoes. When you're done with them, wash them and put them away for next time. I will be doing this for sure.
Oh, and remember the leaf garland I made and hot glued onto the mantel? Well, a few of you were curious to see how it held up and if the hot glue came off ok. I used a plastic spatula to scrape the glue off and it worked perfectly. The leaves looked good for three days; I left mine up for about a week. If I was having Thanksgiving dinner at my house I would definitely make another one, it was so easy.
Is anyone else channeling Martha?
