Mudroom Wall Reveal!

I bet you thought the day would never come.
To be honest, I didn’t either, considering we started this January 1st!


So let’s start with the finished product and for those of you that are interested,
I’ll have a picture tutorial after all the fluffy pictures.Warning: Lots of pictures!
After


The wall before




Something tells me this will be the only time the baskets aren’t filled with junk

 
 


 


 

 
 
 




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.



Free bench






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
EVERYWHERE
 



Make shadow boxes





More Trim







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!
XOXO
Kristin

  1. Wow Kristin!
    It looks fantastic! I can't believe the magic you guys create w/ the woodwork & trim!! Very inspiring…..Love it!!

  2. Fantastic!! I really love the gym baskets with the names on them on the bottom so cute. Wonderful craftsmanship!!!

    Now you can curl up on that bench with a cup of tea and enjoy the weekend =0)

  3. Love it Kristin!!!! It's amazing!!! and you know what? I've used the same Ikea fabric (the white with the grey daisies one) for my hallway!!! But this is a project I'm still working on, so it's not finished yet!!! have a great week end!!!!
    Hugs!

  4. Kristin it's beautiful and your husband deserves a real treat for all that work! One constructive critique, all the baskets are too small – will the wire baskets fit up top? Or maybe make some to fit? Otherwise love the look and the beadboard and the frugal finds. Well done.

  5. Okay, it's my turn to … ME OH MY!!! It looks like custom cabinetry! Just gorgeous! I love the hooks, baskets and all the wainscoting/trim! I know it won't take long to fill those baskets with 3 boys :) Looks fantastic, girl!

  6. You, my friend are AMAZING! That first photo looks like it is out of a magazine!!

    Fantastic job, it really looks incredible. Those cubbies were a great idea! It is just all so cheerful and happy!

  7. Kristin,
    You must be so thrilled with this result, it is so beautiful, and so functional on top of all the prettiness. Wow. I love how you ran the shelving to the ceiling and added the molding (like you did in your kitchen!), it adds so much and takes advantage of the ceiling height. What a wonderful space to have, great job!! Janell

  8. You are a superwoman!!! It looks so functional and beautiful! That would have taken me 2 years as opposed to 2 months. Can't wait to see the rest of the space!

  9. You and the carpenter deserve a pat on the back for doing such a great job. And you say this is your mud room! Beautiful.
    I just finished cleaning my mud room and mine will never be as pretty as yours, but I can't get down on myself because living on 5 acres in the country there will always be mud if there are children, husbands and dogs. Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Wow! That is really amazing. Do you think we could swap husbands for a couple of weeks? lol My husband is good at laundry if that helps you decide :) lol.

    It really is amazing. I need something like that in my mudroom. Just absolutely beautiful Kristin!

  11. Kristin what a sweet space, You and hubby did a great job. It looks totally different!!! I know your family will love using this space!! KS

  12. This is stunning, Kristin! Look at all that storage you have! I love all the pretty trim and woodwork…your husband is very handy, can you send him over?! ;-D

    I love it!

    XO,
    Jane

  13. Looks mag worthy for sure!!! I love the fact that you used a bookcase as one of the main components and then trimmed it out. Just fabulous and so functional.

    My best- Diane

  14. Kristin, Your mudroom should be in a magazine! You and your husband did an outstanding job and it is absolutely beautiful! I love how clean and pretty it is. Wow!!

    Have a good weekend,

  16. Fantastic! Great attention to detail (the trim takes it from basic to wow) and it looks so very pretty. The after looks like you paid big bucks to have a contractor do the work -you guys did a great job! I'm sure this project, with your tutorial pics, will inspire others.
    Organizing projects (especially those that include trimwork) are my favourite to see.

  17. Oh my, that looks so good Kristin! You guys did a great job. It is such a nice mix of being functional and pretty. Best wishes for a wonderful weekend ♥

  18. Wow! It looks awesome. We all knew ude get it done;)……….so functional too. I love the baskets under the bench, im sure ur boys will fill them to the brim. ………Bonnie

  19. Simply Gorgeous Kristin! I have mudroom Envy;) Job well done … I love what you created with the old book case, bench & scrap wood!

  20. I don't have a mudroom but if I did I'd want it to look just like this.
    You and your husband did a fantastic job. It looks great.

  21. This turned out amazing Kristin! Love how you've dressed it up too! The trim really works to pull it all together like one custom unit! Great job.
    Kim:)

  25. WOW!!

    You are amazing!! so creative, clean looking, function.. really.. love the details.

    Fabulous!!! Congrats.. it is lovely

  26. Wow! I was proud of my little measly hooks I just did but now I am a little disappointed!! haha =) Looks amazing!

  27. I was looking for an alternative to cabinets or floating shelves for one wall in my kitchen – this is PERFECT. Thanks so much for sharing!

  28. You did a fantastic job and it looks sooooo great! I had to smile about your words '…you thought the day would never come' :-) I know, that some works need a long time. There are the kids, the daily work, new ideas, bad feeling, other projects, sun, rain, …………..

    But now you're ready and you can be proud!!!!

    Have a wonderful sunday

    Hugs

  29. Kristin!! This is amazing!! Just beautiful! I'm so impressed with your skills (you and husband, of course!). I am so so envious of your beautiful new mudroom! I need this exact same thing in mine!! If you could see the state of my front entry right now….oh my. Not good.
    I love all your little pink details too :) gorgeous!

  30. WOW! You and hubby did a fantastic job! It looks fabulous! I love the addition of the trim and all the other special touches. It was very creative how you took different pieces and made it look like one. I would love something like that in my mudroom but I have two hutches in there and they leave little room for anything else.

  31. It looks so great, Kristin! Nice job all the way around! I'd love to know the paint you used on the shelving piece when you get to that post.

  32. What a wonderful job…it looks beautiful! We put a couple of bookcases and a desk in our mudroom until we can build shelves! It takes us awhile to decide what exactly to do! but you've given me some great ideas! Thanks! ♥

  33. This is FANTASTIC! I had to keep scrolling back up when I saw words like, "free bench" and "$30 bookshelves". What?!? Free? Love how you built up the top and added the crown moulding. Truly fantastic. Worth the wait. ;-)

  34. Kristin, I love it! How creative to take a free bench and a $30.00 bookcase and make this beauty. It turned out wonderful.
    xo,
    Sherry

  35. Well it's about time. I think we have all been dying to see this for a long time now. It is fabulous. Love the colors and it is so light and airy. Can't wait to see the rest!

    Take care,
    Lisa

  36. Well worth the suspense. It is beautiful. I am so impressed and inspired with how you take your finds and create such a gorgeous space. I just want to hang out there! Well done, Kristin. I think I need to just start "Adding wainscoting and trim everywhere!"

  37. Wow, just fantastic. Love how pretty it is. You did a great job on all the wood working. Really makes it look substantial!

  38. Wow.. that is wonderful.. you mudroom just won me over as a new follower! BTW mudroom doesn't do that room justice.

  39. Kristen, it looks fabulous! Y'all did a fantastic job on that trim job. My husband is a stickler for trim done right and y'all did it right. Now I just wish I could get my guy to add trim to my kitchen and powder room.

  40. Kristin! This is just gorgeous! I love it, love it!! Who would have thought that a mudroom could look so darn pretty!

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment and support on my post – I will email properly when I get the chance! mwah

    Big hugs

  42. Kristin,
    It Looks lovely! You have worked so hard, and it has paid off. Love how peaceful it feels in there, you are right…that is probably the only time it will look so beautiful and untouched. I hope you fully enjoy the new space.
    On another note, did you know you won my giveaway? Might want to pop over and send me your mailing address! : )
    Have a great weekend.

  44. Kristin that is one of the prettiest mudrooms that I have ever seen!! :) You guys did an amazing job and I bet you are just loving it!!!! I love all the storage that you created in there and all your treasures are so pretty!!!

  45. That is so beautiful! I love the how-to section. The trim just makes it all the more finished looking. Great job!

  46. Very pretty. What a nice job. All the trim really finishes it off nicely. This is my first time to your blog. I'll be looking around. Dropping by from Met Monday. Hope you'll check out the chairs I had recovered when you have a few minutes.
