Our back door leads right into our kitchen and gets a lot of use. The door is right next to the stove and I'm always tripping over boots and shoes that my family has obediently removed from their feet upon entering the door.
We had an additional sliding back door but it lead to a screened porch with no access to the back deck. I'll admit it was a bit random.
Hubs was not thrilled with another item added to his "honey do" list so we hired a handyman to do the work for us. He did a great job and now we can enter and exit without a hitch. I still need to paint the new wood. We've been busy this weekend cleaning up the mess and washing winter grime off of all our furniture and flower pots. I'll be shopping for new door mats and a shoe holder this week.
I'm so happy to not have boots and shoes in my kitchen or strewn around the deck. Happy, happy me.
