My project for this week was mixing things up in the mudroom.
My goal was to give it a little more character….to make it feel more like a room.
I wrote this post a while ago about the secrets of a great mudroom.
I wanted to give my mudroom a personality of it’s own by adding a shelf and moving things around.
This was what was on the wall when I started.
Just a simple collage…of photos and Amy Butler paper in frames.
My ‘project’ manager this week was my Dad.
After I picked up a shelf and brackets at Ikea…he was my main man.
It was great fun working on a little project with my Dad.
He was the ‘big cheese’….I played the hand-over-the-tool girl.
Now that we live 3000 km apart…we don’t get a ton of ‘hang out’ time.
So it was nice to do this together….I miss my Dad! I used to see him almost every day.
So here is the ‘BEFORE':
In less than an hour, we had the shelf hung.
I love theses new brackets from Ikea with the circle graphic.
It adds a touch of modern fun and interest.
Then I did the fun part~ accessorizing!
I used things I already had~ cost: $0.00
I re-used the frames I already had with the Amy Butler paper.
I re-used the clock.
I added some old family books.
The blue glass bottle was a cast-off given to my by a friend.
Here is the ‘AFTER':
After the shelf was hung and accessorized, I moved these frames to another corner of the mudroom.
And here is the third wall of the mudroom.
It holds three bulletins board to help keep us organized.

Here is the ‘BEFORE’ for that wall:
Here’s the ‘AFTER':
Now my mudroom has a bit more style.
I am really happy with this little vignette…and I can change it out whenever I feel the need to refresh.
It’s a nice little welcome to our house.
Share the Love!
