Adding Character to the {Mudroom}

Pin It
We are finally settling in to our new place, and the decorating has begun!

My FAVORITE (no exaggeration!) room in our new house is the mudroom.  It is right off the garage, so we can drop off all the stuff right as we walk in.



It's a clean freak's dream come true!

Here is a shot of our mudroom. (forgive the baddddd lighting)


As you can see, the spaces up above looked a little lonely.  So, I picked up some faux linen bins from Lowe's.  


Still looks a little drab....


Pull out my cricut, add a little vinyl, and we're good to go!


Looking much better!





My kiddos love the little bench.  They plop right on it to take off their shoes....which are conveniently stored in the drawers at the bottom.



I'm telling you, it's a dream!


Fonts used:
Stuff-----Impervious
Junk--------Arwen

Fabric for pillow and bench cushion are from Hobby Lobby.

  1. Wow! Great job! Found you on the weekend wander. I'm in the process of making window treatments for my kitchen. I know it will be worth all the hard work when I'm done.

  4. LOVE your bench! I sure wish I has a Circuit! Love the names and fonts on your bins. I like those drawers. I am currently making some drawers to fit underneath our mudroom bench. Shoes everywhere is no fun. ;)
