MINI MUDROOM REVEAL

I hope you haven't tired of seeing this mudroom by now because here is the final reveal!  I am so excited to be finished this space (for now). 

We completed our art by making an "N" for Nalle's House!  Just kidding.  "N" also happens to be our family name initial. I used the same oak veneer as the floating bench.  To tie into our colour scheme I painted the edges in a turquoise colour.  The plates are Marimekko purchased from Crate and Barrel last summer (I am now short a couple place settings). :)  I also put my Aalto vase up there with the handprint hearts I made with the boys (you can read about them here).

Here are a couple of pictures of the light fixture.  It was a lucky Habitat for Humanity Restore find.  I love the colour and graphic look of it.

Here is a look at some of the storage in this space.  The shelf holds the embellished West Elm baskets (you can read about them here).  On one sidewall we hung some wire baskets purchased from HomeSense.  I made my own labels for each one with my boys' names (I erased Little Pilot and Co-Pilot's real names for privacy).

Here is a close-up of the space as well as the coat knob hooks I made (you can read about them here).  The bag hanging from them was a baby shower gift made from Marimekko fabric by my sister's friend (you can view her bags here).

Here is the floating bench we made (see the tutorial here).  I made the pillow cover from leftover outdoor fabric from Little Pilot's highchair slipcover.  I love that it is an outdoor fabric because in the summer I can easily take it out to the deck.  Nalle also got a new set of bowls and a food storage tin (both purchased from Superstore).  I was also able to snag the rug from HomeSense for only $15!


Now for the fun part...The "before" and "after".

I hope you've enjoyed watching us transform this little nook in our house.  I know I have had a lot of fun. :)   You might wonder how I have had time to work on all these projects having two little pilots to care for (4 mos & 28 mos).  Well, God had blessed us with a great mom/mummu who helped a lot with my pilots and even with some of the projects too.  She is truly a selfless lady and I just wanted to let her know that she is appreciated.

  1. I love your little mudroom, it's so cute, but totally functional. I meant to comment on the West Elm baskets yesterday, but missed it....I think the stitching totally made them! I've been eyeing that dog food bucket at Superstore for quite some time now - you may have just convinced me to finally go and buy it. What a happy space. Hopefully it won't be winter too much longer so that you can have flip flops on that rug instead of muddy boots.

    1. Thanks Jenny. Mummu made the muumi mitts last year based on a sweater pattern. Mummu knit Co-pilot a muumi sleep sack for Christmas that I think you'll like. :)

  4. I adore your mudroom :) I can't believe you found that light fixture at the Restore--it's wonderful! And seeing your boys makes me nostalgic for when my first two were little...they were nearly exactly 2 years apart, too.

  13. Where did the wire basket hanger come from? I think that's a great organizing piece.

  14. Love it, just discovered your blog via Iheart Organizing and have now subscribed.
    Would you be so kind as to tell me the name and/or designer of the fabric you used for the pillow? I'd love to use it on some chairs I am currently refinishing.

    1. Hi Autumn! I'm so glad you found my blog. The fabric on the pillow is indoor/outdoor fabric I bought about a year ago. The selvage says it's by Bryant Industries BRYANTGUARD. Hopefully it's still available!

  15. Beautiful! I have pillows out of that same outdoor fabric, use them both indoors and out. LOVE your rug too, where did you get that! Great use of a small space. We are just finishing up our laundry/mud room. It is great to have your functional spaces be so pretty too:) Great job!

    1. Hi Krista! I love that fabric too. I also made a slipcover for my son's high chair from it and it washes so well. The rug was purchased from HomeSense in Canada (similar to HomeGoods).

  17. First time commenter, I love this makeover! The room looks so fresh and bright. It's nice that you have all that natural light. :) I love the pops of blue in here too - the rug is so cute! Those cute plates are a great touch.
