I love our house, but I have always wished it had a mudroom. We don't have a designated spot for jackets or backpacks. As a result, our kitchen counters and bar stools have become dumping grounds for bags and coats.
The good news is that this weekend Tal started building a mudroom in our kitchen!
In August, Tal and Uncle Kenny ripped out the built-in desk/office area in our kitchen
to make way for our new hardwood floors:
Tal offered to build me a mudroom with beadboard, coat hooks, and shoe cubbies:
This week Tal is going to put the finishing touches on the mudroom by
caulking the seams, puttying the nails, and installing the corner molding:
Then, I am going to stain and poly the top of the top of the bench ebony black
and then paint everything else white before Tal installs the coat hooks:
Tal and I are looking forward to having an organized spot for our coats, bags, and shoes!
