Look. I’m the first to jump on a DIY project, but there are times when it’s just better to have someone else do it. We paid more than we wanted to, but it was sooo worth it! You ready for a tour? Come on in!
Before we go any further, let me remind you of what this space looked like before.
What was I so afraid of when we built this place? GoodNESS! All that dead space (you know how I feel about dead space) is now filled with hooks, cubbies, drawers, and cabinets. Makes my heart skip a beat!
I’ve still got some finishing touches to add that I’ll post about when ready. However, I’ll be back later this week to talk about this little lady. She’s my new best friend.
Ohhh…I am SO jealous! I LOVE it!! I can’t wait to see all your finishing touches! Thanks for sharing!!
Wowzers! It looks fabulous!!
gorgeous!!! beautiful and functional… i love those combinations… 😉

This is SO cute – You are talented!!
Love it!! I want a mudroom so bad! I am making my husband help me build something like that in our garage so we have something to contain the shoes, coats, backpacks…you know! I am sure you are so happy!! Can’t wait to see what more you add. I left a comment on your giveaway I think I might have been 300 and something lol. Anyways I wanted to make sure you knew about my first great giveaway! Simple to enter. Would love to have you visit. It ends on the 3rd. Have a great week!!
So jealous!! Looks awesome! And that lamp…I’ve been wanting one like that for.ev.er!!!!

I am green!!!!!!!!!!

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! says
Ooooh. Purty, purty, purty, efficient and…..purty!
Amazing!!! Glad you got what you wanted….I wish I had a mudroom to redo now!
Jodee Leader says
Holy moly! That turned out great! I love it!
OH I love it!
OMG! Those lockers are just AWESOME! Did you have a carpenter build them for you?
It turned out beautiful! By the way, you’re mentioned (and copied) in my blog today.
I LOVE it! Looks wonderful! I want something like that so badly, but our entryway just isn’t the right fit for it I don’t believe. It’s so long and narrow.
I’m in love and so jealous. It is a beautiful space and I’m thinking of all the possibilities. Enjoy!
Dream Mom says
Oh my gosh, I just LOVE this! It is so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AMAZING!!!! That looks totally fabulous!
I love your mud room. I was wondering where you got your lamp from, I have been looking for one like that.
NOw this is a mud room to be proud of girl! i know it sucks to pay for someone to do the extra projects but you could not have achieved this look with shelves you just buy and place there. It looks very solid and classic. oh and i’m drooling over the lamp and table accessories!
Hillcrest Acres says
Love It!!! Oh how I want a space like yours with cubbies.
Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful says
The new mudroom is DIVINE! Can’t wait to see it all gussied up with pretty stuff! Oh, and p.s….I’m trying REAL hard not to be completely jealous. I love me some pretty storage!
To The Moon and Back says
Oh Chris, this looks amazing. I wish I had a mudroom!
A Touch of Country says

Lipstick and Laundry ~Jen says
I am super jealous… Your shelving unit turned out AMAZING…
I love that bench with cabinets, drawers, and cubbies!!!!!!!!!!! Was it totally custom built or did you buy it anywhere? So great!
julie & joe says
It’s beautiful! I wish I had a mudroom. I guess people didn’t track in dirt in the 1930’s when my house was built.
Mom Taxi Julie says
I love that cabinet! I take it you had it custom made?
Domestic Diva....NOT says
Ooooh I love it! So pretty 🙂
I love it!!! Congratulations on your new mudroom!!!
M.L. @ The House of Whimsy says
I cannot get over the transformation! I remember the post where you showed all sorts of inspiration pix for your mudroom. Yours is a winner!!! And entering the mudroom by way of that gorgeous black door is just the cherry on top!
I still don’t see your name on the list for the Mr.Pumpkin-on-a-box. Don’t forget to sign up! : )
That is awesome! I’m so jealous. We have four school-aged kids, so I would be thrilled to have cubbies to store all their stuff. Thanks for sharing pics.
So, did your hubby build this? I remember reading somewhere on your blog that he is quite handy. Whoever built it, did a fantastic job!
It’s beautiful! I love it!
Momma to Bug says
Wow, it’s beautiful! Have fun adding the final details 🙂
I am unbelievably jealous of your new cubbies, drawers, and hooks!
Karen at Nittany Inspirations says
The cubbies are great. It made the area much more functional.
Pink Stitches says
Oh my – I want a house like yours! Or can you come and decorate mine :O)
It's Always Something Around Here says
OH I love it!!!
I don’t know how I lived without a mud room before we remodeled and added one.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and it totally puts my mudroom to shame! Chris, it is simply fabulous and you totally deserve it!!!
Farmgirl Paints says
Perfect! I’m so gonna copy cat your garage entry. Can you tell me what color you painted the garage walls? I’m just curious. I’ll let you know when it’s done. I’ve already ordered the numbers from Wonderfully Wordy:)
It is fantastic! I remember that post you did a long time ago about different “inspiration” mudrooms that you had found and loved. Now yours is just as great! Way to go Chris, they really do look perfect!
dotti white says
I love the mudroom, but if it were me, I definitely wouldn’t want mud in that gorgeous spot! Very nicely done! Thanks for sharing!
Miss(es) Canadian Pie says
I'm giving you a virtual High-Five! Wow, is that not gorgeously awesomely organizedly wonderful!!!!
The Graves' House says
So beautiful! Enjoy your new space.
Ooooh! This is awesome and I'm suddenly seeing something like this in my own future!
Making a space functional and BEAUTIOUS is perfect. You created a TON of additional storage space on that itty bitty wall…good job.
Centsational Girl says
Great use of space, I an love your lady friend. Tell us all about her. 🙂

My heart’s skipping beats right along with yours. How wonderful. Congratulations! And you’re right: sometimes it pays just to get it done professionally. Thank you for the inspiration!
Oh My! That looks FABULOUS! Enjoy it!
Simply stunning! A great way to use your space! SOOOO Inspiring!
tiffany lighting says
Wow that looks awesome. I am so jealous of your little cubbies.
Awesome!!!! I just love it. Can’t wait to see what else you do. Also love that lamp. I want a couple for my master bedroom.
Anna See says
So beautiful– I'm drooling. My house opens directly into my kitchen. I'm dreaming of a mudroom!
I LOVE your mudroom. Love the numbers on the door. Love the lamp LOVE table….BUT after seeing Amber's comment there is no longer awe or beauty or inspiration in my head..NOPE. Now there is just THAT song. I CANT GET IT OUT!!!
I heart your mud room! I just keep coming back to look at it and dream. Someday…someday…
Cynnamama's Cafe says
Wow, what a big difference! I truly love it.
oh my gosh– love love love the cubbies!!!! you built my dream mud room!!!!
OH, I've got to have a mudroom space like that! With four kids, we need the built in shelves, hangers, etc….where did you find the unit…or was it all custom built? That's exactly what I want!
that is gorgeous. I am so thinking how can I get something like that into our new space. HMMM
We have four kids. Hubby just finished our mudroom/laundry room re-do. (pics up over at my blog) Yours is beautiful- Enjoy : )
Online Printing says
I like the motif: black and white. Very subtle. 🙂
Those are some killer doors. It looks very elegant! Good job.
love it, you did a great job! Come visit me sometime!
Melissa Miller says
Chris I LOVE it!
The numbers on the door are my favorite thing…so simple yet so classy. ~Wonderful job! 🙂
Rebecca@Harmony and Home says
I just found your blog and it's adorable! I'm SO jealous of your mud room. We have a 2000 foot home in Silicon Valley with the smallest laundry room ever! I can't even turn around in it! But, if I did have a mud room, I would style it just like you did yours! Great cabinetry!
I love your mudroom! Could you tell me what type of wood (and paint) you used to build this? I'm curious if your carpenter built the drawers and cabinets or if they were bought. I'm also from Michigan and enjoy reading your blog.
All Things Cherish says
Hopped over from Kimba's. Wow, absolutely stunning! Who knew a mudroom could cause so much envy! : )
Creative Decor by Brooke says
Wow, that is incredible. I don't know if you can call it a mudroom anymore. Maybe "The Mud Palace". Ha, it looks great.
Thanks for sharing
Little Lovables says
