Enhancing your Mud Room with a trip to the Dollar Store

Have you seen these pebble-filled mud trays all over Pinterest and the blog world?

It just occurred to me that I could replicate this for my entry way with one quick trip to Dollar Tree. I purchased five bags of big rocks. I really could have used one or two more, but I figured $5 was enough to put into this project. 

I filled a mud tray I already had in my closet. My mom had bought me this mud tray at the Christmas Tree Shop. I think it was only $3.95. When I first received the tray, I wanted to add a little something to it, so I spray painted it copper. 

I like the little extra detail it added to my foyer... enough to bring some natural elements to my entrance.

  • Spray paint (already owned - free)
  • 5 bags of rocks ($5)
A great, cheap touch!

    Sarah, This is such a great idea and so cute! Our mud/laundry room floor is in constant battle with our muddy boots(living with horses will do that to you.) I can't wait to make one of these...thanks for the inspiration! :-)

  3. Love this! What a great idea!


I love hearing from you! It makes my day. Really, it does!
