About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

Closet Turned Mudroom: Progress

We have a wall of 3 closets opposite our 1/2 bath on the first level of our home. It is great for storage, but we really don't need that many closets. This winter we struggled to find a place to put our coats, boots and especially a seated area for my pregnant butt to get them on at! I didn't want to drag the snow and dirt in the house with me....so this idea was born. We are turning the furthest closet (in the pic below) into a mudroom! Yes! A closet turned mudroom.

Our hall of closets

Here are some inspiration pics:

Here is what we've done so far in the pic below:

Drywall cut

Rewired and relocated switch lower

Here it is mid-stage below:

Drywall cutting complete
Molding taken down
Window cut and reinforced ledge

What's left to do:

Selecting new tile
Install tile and grout
Build bench

This is going to be AWESOME when it's finished!

Master Bedroom Reveal

And now for the details:

My husband did an amazing job! He installed a ceiling fan and transformed the ceiling from a icky blue to a gorgeous white! The crown molding looks so much better too. Looks quite different than this, don't you think:

Got to love the seller's unmade bed when we did our final walkthrough! Ugh. I <3 my new bedroom!
