Last weekend I got busy and whitewashed it inside and out. I wanted to use it as a bench at my back door but since it's a bit smelly inside still, I wasn't sure what to store inside it. With a sudden inspired thought, I bought a new rubber mat to put inside the crate and added some chalkboard paint to the side of it. Here is the final product:
While I was at it, I pulled out some other crates that I've picked up along the way and stacked them into my little laundry/recycle zone.
My mud room is tidied up and dirty boots are tucked neatly away. Now I smile every time I come through my back door :). (for a mini tour of my mudroom/laundry room click HERE)
