In terms of small projects, I did manage to finish the wall racks for our skis. Now we are ready to start the ski season with right frame of mind. I lightly stained the wood just for effect, and the final step will be to secure it to the wall, which may require some stud finding, or at the very least, employing some drywall anchors. Molly bolts, as I've been told.
I will say this, as frivolous as this project may seem, I do think it will keep the mudroom a little more orderly, and this will go a long way in making it a more harmonious Winter. Plus, it makes us feel like we live in a Swiss ski chalet. How can you beat that?
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
