Mud Room Update

Do you remember this?
 After building the new Hobby Garage, we were able to free up the old tool room and convert it to our new mud room.

 And I had picked up this bench and redid it for this room...
I have been on the lookout for more decor fitting this space. Decor Steals was one with their three vintage looking key locks and a local artist was another with a picture of a bicycle vignette from New Orleans...
I luckily found another larger numbered and signed photograph of France fitting for the space. It was only $6 at a garage sale in a hideous red frame. Totally wrong for the picture. I changed that with one from my stash painted with French Linen Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Now it's perfect!
Oh yeah, and lavender cut from my garden on the floor waiting to be bundled and dried.

On to the next piece. I purchased this lovely corner etagere at another garage sale...
Initially, I was going to sell it after painting it. But I stored it in the mud room and it became perfect for its spot. So I painted it with more French Linen ASCP and highly distressed it.
It's suited for this space.
So why not have lovely things in a well used mud room?

  1. The beadboard is stunning and I love the bench re-do!

  2. What a great space and I love the way you have decorated it. That little corner shelf is just beautiful!

  3. Love how you painted your corner stand. I have one without the spires and will try to duplicate. Mine's white now and not pretty like yours.

  4. Looks amazing!!! i wish I had a big, pretty mud room....maybe i can move in with you!? :)
    Thanks so much for linking up for Habitat! Good luck and hope to see you again next week!

  5. I'm in awe here, because I just got the EXACT SAME BENCH and am in the process of painting it white and recovering the seat. I'm going to put it on our front porch. Funny. Coming over from TT&J. The room is looking great.

  6. Oh wow, this is such a great space. Love your new corner shelf, it turned out fabulous. Hugs, marty

  7. Your mudroom looks amazing....you did such a great job and got some good finds for it too :0)


  8. Wow - this is amazing! Makes me want to go out and paint my garage floor right now and make it all pretty!

  9. Great look! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  10. That is one beautiful transformation! I'll bet it will inspire a lot of folks to try for a similar great result.


It makes me smile to hear from you!
