Mudroom Makeover – The Reveal

This post may contain affiliate links.  Thanks for your support.
This has been a long time coming but I’m very happy to announce

This all started here with a leak that caused extensive damage.

There was need for new and more insulation, new electrical work, and new flooring.  So, everything had to go.  The room went back to the studs.

At this point, things could only get better as we started putting things back together.

Ok, enough introduction…

Here you have it…My New Mudroom.

Here is how the “new” bench in the mudroom made it’s evolution from changing table to bench…with 14 years of stops along the way.

My new sewing hobby helped in the process of making inexpensive curtains and pillow covers.


These dollar store boxes and the makeover gave us some extra storage and brought the room to life.

The work was done by My Better Half.  He has a desk job by day and is my personal handyman by night…gotta LOVE him!!

Thanks for being patient and sticking with me during this transformation.
What do you think??
