Favorite Places and Spaces
."I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them. And I protest, if I had any money to spare, I should buy a little land and build one myself, within a short distance of London, where I might drive myself down at any time, and collect a few friends about me and be happy. I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage." — Jane Austen
Standard coat closet turned functional, mudroom-esque, entryway nook. Yes, really! I would make alternate choices for the organizational aspects of this space but SO love the space iteself. Find the three part tutorial at The House of Smiths blog. Great blog, by the way. Shelley shares practical ideas about upgrading, organizing, and decorating the home on a budget and more! : ) cute site!!
Remove closet doors to make a hallway nook. WOuld like to do this in Laundry room by back door
