After finishing our kitchen renovations, we had a lot of paint and supplies left over. Thank goodness because we still had a lot of rooms to finish! The main room that has been bugging me was the mud room. This room is the first room you see when you enter the house, it is also the stairway to the basement. I wanted a functional room that didn’t look crowded and cluttered and the first chore on the list was to get rid of the orange wood trim and put some color on the walls to give it a clean, fresh look.
I am so proud to say that I brought this room to life for FREE! Using all of the paint left over from the kitchen reno, I mixed and matched to get the exact color that I was looking for. It is amazing what paint can do to a room! Watch the transformation 🙂
Since the Holidays are coming up, I am pushing to get this project done. I am not sure if I can finish the whole room for the cost of….free, but I think it will be close.
To Do List
- Build a bench and coat hanger (on wall beside french door)
- Change hanging light (or maybe just upcycle this one)
- Put up red curtains
- Start working downwards and pull up carpet and pull off wall paneling….that is another job all together!
