Last time I left you off with the plank wall I had cut, installed and painted the boards. If you want more details you can read all about the installation process here.
The whole purpose of installing the boards was to have a backdrop to my collection of Marilyn Merlot wines. I had picked up four stainless steel wine racks from Ikea about three years ago with the intention of using them to display my wine. If you know me or have been reading this blog, then you may be seeing a trend here. I tend to buy things with the intention of using them, but don't seem to get around to it until months or years later. I guess I'm kind of a hoarder when it comes to home decor. Especially things that are on clearance or from Goodwill that need a little update. In my defense, I did install the wine racks on the wall next to the bar, but had to remove them when we hung the upper cabinets.
I am thrilled to finally have this space finished. After finishing this project and realizing how easy it was, I definitely think I want to plank the walls in the mudroom when the time comes.
