So imagine my all out joy when we decided to start working on the mudroom. A single room that we can start and complete that is not contingent on other parts or rooms or pieces being complete. Have I mentioned how much I like making lists? I should say that a lot that comes from the joy I feel checking things off lists. To have a whole room on the list that I will soon be able to check off has me pretty close to cloud nine.
Here's what it looked like when we bought the place. Now it's sans old chairs and full of garden tools, other tools, dog food, the foam mattress the dogs went sharknado on and other junk.
Through looking at magazines, watching too much of HGTV and the Create Channel, playing on Pinterest and other idea sourcing, boyfriend has figured out some of my style preferences. Kind of amazing since I've been so overwhelmed by choices that I've been noncommittal.
He caught this episode of For Your Home on the Create Channel and when I came home said, "I think you're going to like this." Skip to about 16:45 in the episode for the mudroom.
We're making some modifications since our room is a slightly different layout, but he's building the 3D model as we speak to we can visualize exactly what we want to do and see it before we start making a mess.
I love the bench, and the cubbies and especially the planks.
