I’m so excited to be finally share our completed Mudroom with you today! It’s been a long time coming for this mudroom organization project which we actually started in February. You can see the original build here but this is what it looked like when we started…YIKES.

No where to go but up, right? First things first, we needed more light so in goes the window. It was harder than we thought it would be but so worth it.
Now for the organization. I wanted each of us to have our own space so we built cubbies.
For organizing our “stuff” I picked up some baskets to put on the shelves we planned on adding and crates to go on the bottom of the cubbies at Michaels. The baskets will, hopefully, make it easier to find hats/gloves etc. and the crates corral our shoes. The crates were unfinished when I got them and I wanted them to be darker so I stained them with Minwax stain in Early American.
The bottom of each crate is a bit rough and I worried they may scratch the cubbie so I added self adhesive chair pads to the bottoms.
Now that the organization part is done, it’s time for the fun part. What’s a farmhouse mudroom without a few farmhouse touches?
I picked up the empty window frame in someones garbage. I’m not above dumpster (or side of the road) diving. The poultry farm sign is not a sign at all but was a pleasant surprise when we pulled out the bottom of an old dresser to replace it. The dried hydrangeas are from my neighbors yard and the shoe form is just fun.
I am SO in love with this egg crate basket. It’s definitely not something you see everyday. We picked it up at the Warrensburg Garage sale back in October and it goes so well in our home. The cutting board someone gave me at different garage sale. It was broken and dirty but cleaned up nice. The pitcher I got at Marshalls years ago but you can find a similar one here. You can never have too many white pitchers. 🙂
The stain on the crates matches the baskets and the wood flooring we used for the background. The larger spaces underneath the shelves that the baskets sit on are perfect for big school backpacks.
The chalkboard on the right I picked up at a garage sale and the little gray stool underneath it is a previous project you can see here. The EXIT arrow is from Hobby Lobby and while it’s not part of the mudroom organization, it’s quirky and unique and i love the personality it adds to the space. The paisley rug is from Target.
It’s hard to see the sign above the doorway on the left but you can see it better in this picture above. It’s actually the side of an old crate.
I LOVE the way everything turned out! I think it will help us stay organized as long as I can get everyone to put their stuff where it goes. One can only hope.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me share my final mudroom organization project!
