Once a Bookshelf… Now Mudroom Lockers!

Restoration Hardware’s entryway lockers had Meesh from imeeshu swooning for months. She had designed a full-on building plan before realizing she could pull it off without risking sawing off a finger. Meesh redirected her efforts and found a bookshelf she could repurpose with the addition of a few boards and chalk paint. Meesh says, “A […Read More]

Entryway Storage Console That Has It All!

Thanks to Jaime from That’s My Letter and Ana White, you can build your own entry console with tons of hidden storage. I couldn’t agree with Jaime more when she says, “This console has it all: drawers, open shelving, baskets and bins… Personally I want concealed storage that’s easily accessible for my 3 kids but still neat looking and segregated so each child has their own designated basket and bin.” Jaime spent less than 1/4 of retail price (not including shipping charges!) and was able to modify the dimensions to not waste an inch of space and finish in her choice of color. Booya!

Kilim Upholstered Thrift Store Bench

This kilim upholstered bench made by Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. is a match made in thrift store heaven! Lindsay, a kilim-loving gal, was in need of a bench for her mudroom. She headed straight to the thrift store where she found a wood and metal bench, a Navajo blanket, and a sleeping bag for batting. She combined the three items together to create this beauty!

Wood Coat Knobs

Anu from Nalle’s House was all settled on modern coat knobs she wanted to purchase for her mini mudroom… and then discovered they simply wouldn’t fit. Anu found a very cost-friendly alternative in some unfinished wood knobs that she finished with a bright blue stain and mounted with double-ended screws. The knob are functional and add a great pop of color to the small space (which is absolutely darling)!

Reclaimed Wood Coat Rack

Catherine from Stone and Rose loved Restoration Hardware’s schematic drawing of metal coat hooks and old wood but actually needed something to hang coats on! Using leftover barn wood from her floor and coat hooks from Ikea, Catherine created her own coat rack that didn’t cost a bundle! I love the combination of the industrial-looking […Read More]

Mudroom Storage System

One thing I love about our home is the mudroom coming off the garage. Seriously, what would I do without this space to stash coats, shoes, and the like? Ana White recently created the perfect mudroom for her home just in time for fall. The mudroom has loads of storage from shelves to hooks to […Read More]

White Entryway Storage Units

Lookie lookie what Jaime from That’s My Letter built for a friend! Yes, a friend! I know you are all wanting to buddy up with Jaime right now because that girl can seriously build. Jaime modified plans from Ana White to create two entryway storage units to wing both sides of the front door. The […Read More]
