Lately I have been thinking of my entry ways and how I can better organize them. I still need a mat or rug for one entry way for winter boots (I live in Minneapolis). It needs to hold up to wet dirty boots but still look cute. I think this is it..... I especially love that I can wipe it clean from mud. I will stain it with no VOC wood stain from Naturally Built. You can use old wood you have laying around, which is great because I will soon have a lot of it with teaching myself wood working. You can find the post about this at Tree hugger via How Does She.
