Hi, this is Ann Myrick and today I'm going to show you how to organize your entryway and mud room. What you want to do is, entryways are usually fairly small, and you really want to do it thinking about what works for each individual family. If you're a family that likes to put the keys in something when you first walk in, if you like the mail right there, you really need to think about how you want to utilize that entry room and make it work for you. We have a great chest in this entry room and I love it because it has all these drawer spaces. So you could organize it by putting all the gloves, all the hats, sweaters, and just make the chest really work for you in that way. Also, this is a great little piece because you can decorate with it along with, it has two little drawers, and so you could put his and hers, or you could put house keys and car keys. You can just do it any way you want to, as far as using the drawers, so all the keys can go in there so you have in your foyer, as you walk out the door, you have hats, you have sweaters, and you have your keys. Also, with your closet, you want to organize so you can put in, when people come over, you can put in the, all your coats, boots, and just organize it where it just really works for you. Mud room would be the same thing. Decide what, how you're going to use your mud room and just make it work for you. Baskets where the kids can throw their goulashes and their mittens in, maybe a towel where they come in from the mud or the snow they can dry off. So just make your mud room work for you. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how you organize entryways and mud rooms.
