Ready for the big reveal?
It’s such a tight space to photograph but I tried my best.
I have had so much fun transforming this room with you! Thanks for being so patient with us and joining in on the ride!
Walking in from the garage looking straight ahead
at the kids computer area and toy storage.
If you walk in from the house you see my craft area where I painted my grandmothers
Walking in from the garage you see the mudroom wall and the door that leads into the house.
Some of you asked where we purchased the book shelf. It was a craigslist find for $30. I have seen them new at Ikea for $99.
The bench was free at a garage sale.
You can find out how we made the wall organizer out of two used pieces here.
Hooks from Target
Baskets from Target.
I modge Podged their names on the wood signs from Michael’s.
Woven baskets from Ikea. I covered the magazine holders with fabric.
Bench pad and pillows I made.
The kids craft area is bright and sunny under the window.
The shutters were purchased on Craigslist for $20.
Table was free from a friend, which I transformed.
Here are some before shots. I can not for the life of me find any pictures of this room when it was a garage. The wall was built my my husband and father in law.
If I run across the pictures I promise to add them!
Once again, thank you, for your support, encouragement and such kind words!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
So, what is left?
Take the wheels off and attach the bench to the wall.
Find two more hooks and add them for more hanging storage.
Let’s take a look back and see how all this came to be.
Sanded primed and painted
$30 bookshelf sanded, primed and painted
Husbands handy work with scrap wood
Add the bookshelf above
Add box above bookshelf to make it look like a heightened cabinet.
We did this in the kitchen.
Start adding trim and wainscot
Make shadow boxes
Lots of trim makes everything pretty!
Considering the kitchen took us 5 years, this is pretty fast for us!
I’ll be posting pictures of the whole room on Monday!
Hope your weekend is fabulous!
My corner of the mudroom is all finished.
I enjoy seeing my supplies so I chose to display everything in recycled glass bottles.
They make some of the best containers to display little treasures, the best part,
they are free!
Since California can sometimes be on the rocky side, I attached Velcro on each bottle so we don’t have any accidents.
The shelves were being stored in a closet, I used to have them displayed in the nursery. I’m so glad I hung onto them!
The frame I repainted and the blue form I purchased at Marshall’s for $6.00
I’ll be sharing more of the corner this week with you and how I pulled it off for $30.00.
So much talent has been linked up!
Every week I have such a hard time picking just a few to highlight, this week was no exception.
Emerald Cove’s master bedroom transformation with her own faux fireplace!
Link up, have fun, grab a button on my sidebar if you would like!
You most likely thought I was never going to show you the curtains hung…..
Truth be told I couldn’t stop adding more ruffles, they are addicting.
I know some of you were bit worried and thought about a ruffle intervention, I’m OK…
really, I am.
l just I needed a wee bit help hanging the 10 foot pole,
the hubby is a busy man!
Now you know where I hung the silhouettes.
I want you to know these drapes are so imperfect but you know what?
They make me happy!
I sewed on ruffles wherever my heart desired
and enjoyed every minute of it!
Here is the before….oopps never painted over the old blue in that corner.
Yes, someday I dream of something like this from Restoration Hardware.
No, silly not for the wine storage, although that would be nice.
All these little niches could be filled with crafting supplies!
Happy Valentines Day!
What could be more romantic then sparkly glass crystals hanging from the ceiling?
That’s right, the chandelier is up and I’m in serious
My beautiful friend gave me her late mothers antique chandelier about a year ago.
I honestly thought it would be too big for the mudroom but decided to clean it all up and give it a try.
The minute it went up I knew it was a perfect for the space. I could feel her mom looking down at me with a great big smile.
There are a few glass parts that are missing that are on order and a few more bulbs that need to be purchased but I couldn’t hold off showing you for another minute.
I’ll be sharing more of my little craft corner later
Wishing you lots of love
and a great big hug on this special day!
