Stuff Room

I talked yesterday about finally hanging the bulletin board and today I'm excited to share with you the mudroom evolution!  

It's certainly one of those rooms that will evolve with time, but I am excited to have a space to hide/organize all the junk that accumulates like snowpants, car seats,  school papers. and miscellaneous "stuff".  I should just call it the Stuff Room.

This room has already served many purposes.  It held all my hardware and light fixtures for about 6 months.  When the weather got colder, I used this room to paint my doors in.  And now it's the place we toss stuff at the end of the day just so we don't have to look at it. I still keep my paint and brushes in here just because I am too lazy to walk ALL THE WAY TO THE BASEMENT (which is about 9 steps away from the mudroom) when I want to paint.

A drawer just for cards. Wow. 

I spray painted the old phone plate.  Why not?

This is the light fixture from Restore with some spray paint.  I think I kept Rustoleum in business this year.  

Genevieve likes having her own horse calendar to keep track of popcorn & movie nights and other important events. 

I still have quite a bit of sanding, priming and painting to do, but admittedly this isn't high on my list. I am just happy to have the bulletin board and hooks up so that we can have a little more order around here.  



  1. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn't show up.
    Grrrr... well I'm not writing all that over again.
    Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!
