Hey friends, I'm back today with another mudroom update that I am super excited about! From the moment I painted our front door using Sherwin Williams Iron Ore I knew I wanted to do the same with the mudroom doors. Painting them dark was the perfect solution for breaking up all the monochromatic white in the room. The dark paint completely changed the whole feel of the space and added much needed contrast to the room. The difference is night and day.
Here's how the room looks today!front door) it is now growing on me.
I temporarily moved one of the kids toy benches to the spot where I plan to build a custom bench. I have the wood it's just a matter of actually getting motivated to build the thing. Do you ever have that problem? I feel like I have all these grand ideas then lack the motivation to actually get them done.
It's hard to believe how this space looked just a short time ago.
We have definitely had our fair share of problems, made a few mistakes and learned a lot from planning, hiring and organizing this renovation ourselves. It's been a crazy ride full of hassles, headaches and overspending, but in the end it's all been worth the trouble.
Still on the list:
- Build custom bench
- Update and hang free light fixture
- Install trim molding (this was picked up over the weekend and should be done next week)
- Add sitting area on kitchen side
