We absolutely love tables made from slabs – especially when the live edge is left intact. Something about the modern + natural combination is so beautiful. All the clean, sharp lines intrinsic in modern design coupled with the rawness and beauty of wood slabs is just stunning.
When we moved into the new house, our mudroom consisted of 4 walls, a tile floor and a ceiling. That’s about it. Since we had about 734 projects that took priority over finishing this space, we quickly hacked together an old Ikea bookcase and turned it into a wardrobe-of-sorts. It served it’s purpose – had a place to hang coats, had shelves for baskets… but it was clearly a “hack” and we were ready for something a little more legit. I don’t have any ‘before’ pictures because when I gave Susan the green light for this project she started demolition quicker than I’ve ever seen her!
We made large wardrobe boxes out of plywood that we salvaged from our kitchen pantry remodel. Added some rods, a few baskets and some stools. NOW we have a legitimate mudroom! 🙂
Prior to this remodel, there was so much unusable space in our kitchen pantry! The built-in shelves that our builder installed did not maximize the space at all. We can’t really claim this as a DIY project because all we did was demolition the old pantry, and install the new one. But we’re still proud of the results! 😉 We purchased this pantry at Container Store. Man, we can get into some serious trouble at that store! Love it! Check out the before and after pics – we’re so happy with how it turned out! And, we have a TON more storage space.
