Hi, friends! I hope you are all doing well on this chilly Tuesday.
We have been up to our shins in snow since November 1st came, which is typical for our city, and it has me looking forward to the holiday season. It is interesting thinking about being in a new place for the holidays for the first time, though. For the past 5 years, I have been used to having just our one small room to decorate in the apartment we lived in, plus maybe adding a couple of touches to the bedroom. Now, I have an entire home as my canvas for the season! It is both exciting, and daunting, as well as a little bittersweet reminiscing on all of the memories we shared in our tiny, but cozy, home during our many Christmases there. However, I can’t wait to make new memories in this new place – our first real, owned by us, home – either.
With all of that said though, I realized I still haven’t given you an update on our mudroom since it has been complete, so I thought I better do that!
This was the first project we set to work on once we moved into our home. I chatted with my father-in-law about how I envisioned it looking, and he was able to make it come to life for us.
So, here is a look at it today!
Having this bright room to come in and out of in our home has been so wonderful. And it is awesome that it is so functional for us in regards to extra storage, coat hooks, cubbies for mittens, and spots for our shoes.
It’s so fun to be able to add in small seasonal touches as well. I can’t wait to figure out how I will sprinkle a little bit of Christmas cheer into this space in the coming weeks!
It is really amazing how a smaller scale renovation like this can really transform a space. When we first moved in, this room was kind of just a dark corner that had nothing in it (aside from our broom and vacuum), so I would keep the pocket door closed day and night. The way that these built ins have brightened it up and created such a beautiful focal point, as well as being able to hide the broom and vacuum, has made it so I want to keep the pocket door open at all times! It’s so nice to walk by and catch a glimpse of this room throughout the day.
I hope that you have enjoyed my small space mudroom tour. If you want to know any of my sources, you can always find me on Instagram or Facebook, where I link products through the photos I post. I would love to see you over there either way, so that we can interact!
Hoping that you have a beautiful day, and thanks for stopping by.
