Mudroom Makeover

With the kitchen and living area in pretty good shape, it's time to tackle the mudroom!

I haven't posted any pictures of the mudroom yet, because frankly it's embarrassing. The room was a total wreck when we moved in, so we've taken to using it as storage for all kinds of random stuff. We even used it as a makeshift shop in bad weather. (And then I got to enjoy shaking sawdust out of our next three loads of laundry. Don't try this at home, kids.)

Well, it's time to come clean. Here's the mudroom, in all its icky, overcrowded glory.

Don't judge me.

So here's the plan. Right now, the washing machine and dryer are on different walls. We're moving the washer next to the dryer, under the window. Then we'll cover them both with some nice countertop. That will leave the other wall free for cabinets. Also, we're replacing the floor and repainting. It's going to be an awesome transformation! And it will free up a lot of currently overcrowded storage all over the house.

It took an entire weekend just to get everything cleared out. But it looks better already!

Use your imagination.

I can't wait to start installing the new floor!

Hermione is skeptical. The old floor is delicious.


  1. I need to do the same to my basement! You've inspired me :)
