Mudroom Reveal!

13 Sep

The mudroom is finally complete, and it’s as functional as it is beautiful.

Before I share the finished photos, here’s a look back at what it used to be. It was all one open room that served as a mostly unused den/office:


Then we added a wall and divided it into a playroom on one side and mudroom on the other.


We hung some temporary coat hooks for a little while:


And then most recently, I shared this progress photo:

And now, here is the finished mudroom:


We painted the cabinets Galveston Gray by Benjamin Moore, and stained the Mahogany seat Dark Walnut by Minwax. It turned out stunning!


We also painted the back door Abyss by Benjamin Moore, which is a really dark navy color.

The upper cubbies have lined wicker baskets from Target and they hold hats, gloves, scarves, umbrellas and more. mudroom-baskets

The bottom cubbies we decided to keep open so that it is easy to kick off your shoes and keep things tidy.


We installed these corbels from Home Depot and these brass hooks from Amazon.


The cabinets on each side give us a ton of great storage.


We filled the lower cabinet by the back door with shoe shelves:



The other lower cabinet holds our vacuum, mop and step ladder:


And then the upper cabinets hold mail, sunglasses, paper towels and more. And we have empty room to hold even more.

The knobs on the cabinets are these beaded antique brass knobs from ATG.


Lastly, here’s a view of it from the garage, showing how it leads into the kitchen.


We really love it and are so happy with how it turned out! Now, onto the living room built ins which we recently ripped out.

    That looks amazing! Thanks for showing us inside as well. I love the idea of hiding the step stool in the cabinet part. It is all beautiful.
