mudroom: what isn't so obvious is the desk space right there in the mudroom; every house with kids needs some sort of command central that is IN the mail pathway but not in plain sight of the rest of the house.
Mudroom. Yes please! Love the mail part in this one. We have so many papers coming into our house each day to include boys school work and mail. Something like this would keep little piles from accumulating in the kitchen. :)
