So I started with the paint color. I had a gallon of mistint from when the painter was here. It wasn't the wrong color but mixed in the wrong base. So it was just sitting around. Happenstance- it was the perfect color for the mudroom! I mean perfect!
After painting the walls, I reorganized the shelf storage. I painted the metal garage door with chalkboard paint and put numbers on the lockers. We used some of the girls origami cranes and hung them in the corner...oh and my mirror! Painted a $5 garage sale find (that had been sitting in our garage for 2 years!) cherry tomato red. It was gold...so a definite improvement there! And its the perfect size and shape...fits the space perfectly! Added a few outdoor throw pillows to the bench and voila! NEW-ish mudroom!
Here are the pix...
The walls were a fleshy peach color. With navy blue tiles on the floor and grey storage. hmmmmm...not sure what was going on there. So you can see why the greyish paint was such an improvement!
I don't like the dog crate there...but we have to have it while we have a dog so what's a girl to do?
Now did I mention that this whole redo...that John actually really likes!...cost $0! I know, can you believe it...free! Everything we had- we just repurposed some things and switched out storage containers from around the house! Pretty darn awesome! and yes...I always have chalkboard paint laying around! I love that stuff!
