{Mudroom Progress} Temporary light, paint choices and flooring

Did you guys think I forgot about the mudroom?  It's been quite a while since I shared an update, but to be honest, not much has been completed.    After whitewashing the brick  and hanging the rustic pallet coat rack  our mudroom took a major halt on progress.  We were extremely fortunate to be given an entire set of awesome kitchen cabinets, which we had been storing in our mudroom. Yeah, it's been a hot mess in there! I am happy to say, the cabinets have since be moved to the garage and laundry room and the mudroom is finally cleared out.  (mostly!) Now, back to the light.  If you remember, I plan on finishing our mudroom with temporary products until we do the full blown kitchen remodel.  In the meantime, I don't want to look at an unfinished space for 1-2 years, so I'm temporarily finishing it as cheap as possible.   That's when I got the idea to install the pendent lights over the plan light bulbs.

DIY Rolling Storage Box {Monthly DIY Challenge}

It's time for another edition of #MonthlyDIYChallenge!  I always look forward to our monthly challanges and couldn't be more excited about this months theme, organizing and storage solutions!  January tends to be month where everyone is purging and organizing, so this couldn't come at a better time. My son is Lego obsessed and received more legos for Christmas than I can count.  I admit, I thought it was great that he started getting into legos until I realized I would be the one putting most of them together and keeping them organized.  Seems that he enjoys playing with the finished trucks rather than the actual building part.  Hmm. So far, I've managed to keep all the different pieces together by placing each set in plastic bags with their insturctions.  The real challenge was storing the completed Lego trucks so that they didn't get damaged.  I can't tell you how many times my son has come to me crying to fix one of his broken trucks or find a lost ...
