Small Mudroom Entry Reveal!

The Mudroom Entry project is finally done!

It is finally finished and I am content with the
outcome, hurrah!
Let's go back to the beginning of this project,
shall we.  It began here!
After Mr. M was done with the construction of this space,
I painted the walls, bench, bead board and hook
rail and was finished with the work here.  I wanted a different kind of shelving,
but we worked with what we had on hand to keep cost low.
We can always change it in the future.

With a few accessories in the space,
I was able to give it life.
I wanted to place a seat cushion on the bench,
but that will have to wait for another time,
for now this will work.
I added some personal touches and a bit of color for pop.
The oval picture frame on the right side of the
wall reads "love" and it holds my son's art work.
The art work on the left wall is by Katie Daisy Art and it
reads "practice patience please",
it is a great reminder of that virtue.
On the wall shelf above the hook rail,
you see two different size photo frames.
 I spray painted the large empty frame with white
spray paint and I left it as is, meaning no art work,
no glass or photo in it.
The point of that was to create a bit of an
architectural shabby look.
For the smaller frame I created my own art work and added
yellow to the background to coordinate with other pieces.
The white throw pillow is handmade by my loving mother,
she made this pillow for me when I first got married
several years ago.
It has two sides to vary in color and the chevron pillow
behind it is also two sided and from Target.
The baskets below serve to hide the shoes, slippers and other
items such as dog leashes and so on.
 On the opposite wall from this area are silhouette photo 
frames made by yours truly.
Creating this space and hand making most of the items
was so much fun and the excitement of it all was self rewarding
 both for Mr. M and myself.  My favorite part of this area
is that it serves as storage and is functional for the whole family.

  13. Your mudroom looks great... one question, though. Where do you put the vacuum??

    1. That's a good question, I put my vacuum in the laundry room behind the door, just until I can find a permanent place for it. I'm currently fixing up my home, room by room. Hopefully everything will have a place of it's own:-)

  14. I adoooooorrrree this! Super terrific job. I've been trying to convince the hubby to convert one of our closets into a mud room. I think he just needs a visual so thanks for helping me score a future win..LOL

  33. I love this gray! what is the name of the paint?

    1. Olympic, D64-2, Silver Threads, From Lowe's

  34. I love this space! Could you tell me where the larger individual hooks came from? I've been searching for something similar and have had no luck. Thank you!

  35. All the hooks including the large ones came from Lowes. I have seen those at Target as well. I hope that helps.
    Good luck finding them. Sometimes the stores can be out of stock, so you may want to ask if they will get more


Thank you for adding your thoughts. I read all of your comments and I reply to all one way or another, mostly by email or on your blog. You brighten up my day & for that I thank you.
