It is currently finals time here in the engineering department at Miami. So my head feels like it is about to burst... the only thing that is keeping me sane are the "doodle breaks" that I allow myself to do every few hours. Last night's design doodle dealt with the first DIY project I am throwing myself into once I am back home. Our back porch area has been dry-walled and sanded down and thats about it... my mom has stared at it for months and can't decide what to do with the space. We currently added a half bath and it will have a laundry area for the washer and dryer. Since those are already drawn in the plans... I wanted something a little extra to define the space more. I have always wanted a mud-room area for when you come through the backdoor. So here's the sketch:
We have a space in between two windows that I think would be perfect for a planked wall and a bench to remove shoes and boots. I was inspired by the following pictures. Of course I had to email them to my mom so she could grasp the vision.

old and country-style, so its a must have!
