Creating a mudroom in the garage: Say you have a garage that you enter and exit through, but only a narrow foyer once you've entered the house. A practical solution is to use a portion of your garage as a mudroom, as blogger Lori S. of Thrifty Decor Mom did. She cleared the corner of her garage that is adjacent to the door to her house, and showed her skills as a painter by painting the walls a light, fresh color. She installed simple, inexpensive, prefabricated storage items, including a shoe rack and a coat rack. Now she and her children can leave their dirty shoes and wet coats by the door before entering the house.

IKEA hack mudroom cubby unit: This project was created by blogger Kim from The Money Pit (not to be confused with the syndicated radio show). It is one of the most clever IKEA hacks that I have seen. Kim attached "2 Billy Bookcases, 1 Billy Wall Shelf, 1 Smadal TV Console from IKEA and attached them to the wall up against a section of beadboard". The result looks like a very expensive and fancy mudroom storage unit, but it cost her a mere $300.
