I love this idea executed by one of my readers.   She transformed a bookshelf she already had to create a portable, mini mudroom.  This is a great idea for those who rent because it’s easy to take it with you.   It’s also a nice way to maximize space in a small area.

She writes:  I had a bookshelf left over from a garage sale.  I primed it with the infamous Zinsser 1.2.3 then painted with a satin white. I arranged the shelves how I wanted them and added under mount hooks on the top shelf.  

mini mud roomWhat a great use for an old bookcase!  I love the chunkiness of the shelves. This redo gives me another idea for those old armoires many have.   If you don’t repurpose it elsewhere in your home (great example in this post), you could turn that armoire into a mini mudroom.

Have you come up with a new use for an old item in your home?   Do share!

    This is such a good idea. The shoes and clutter by the back door can be so annoying, and we don’t have an actual “mud room.”
