We’ve had insane amounts of rain here in Charlotte, NC during the last couple months. It’s been unseasonably warm for Nov/Dec (70’s!), but too rainy to take advantage of the nice temperatures.

Any good mudroom needs a command center, right?? That’s what we thought, too. Ours is a combination of things from Container Store and Ikea.

Many of the Container Store items were on sale – definitely helped to keep the cost down on this project!
The metal planters (used as pen/pencil holders here) were hung on the wall using pipe clamps and picture hangers. Just clip the picture hanger around the pipe clamp, and nail to the wall. Super simple!
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! 🙂
