A Floor Cloth in Time for Mud Season
We have a handy milk house bench close to the front door with boot trays under it; you sit there to deal with muddy shoes and boots.
But between it and the front door had been beautiful wood floor and a towel thrown down to protect it. Unattractive, ineffectual.
Enter Anna's floor cloth inspiration.
I found this linen on clearance, plus 50% off with a coupon: $2 a yard, meaning my floor cloth cost a total of $8 because I lined it with old towels of unknown origins.
Now you can come in the front door with a big arrowed path straight to the handy bench and boot tray. My husband is very impressed, and he has a specific design and utility sense. Whew.
So far the floor cloth is heavy enough to stay in place (top and bottom linen layers, lined with towels) and easy to vacuum. Rug possibilities are infinite now!
