I'm really excited to show you the pretty makeover on our breezeway/mudroom area. Rich did a great job with all that painting. We ran into some bumps along the way, but I'm really happy with the result. Here was the
And here is the
New Bench (painted) I added baskets and placemats for a natural look.:
This wall before (on the left):
The bench with the pillows was a pathetic looking bootshelf from an old closet. It's still pathetic looking, but is covered in paint. The pillows are from Kohls (clearance $12.50/each). The baskets are lined with plastic for storage and were $5.99/each.
Rich painted the wall for a faux built-in look for the wall shelf. He built the shelf out of 3 pieces of lumber and some trim. The hooks were $4.50/each at Home Depot.
We painted the chalkboard and this little stand with the same color as the bench and coat rack. The frames were $4.99/each at a local discount shop and the prints inside were found at my favorite online graphics blog The Graphics Fairy.
We have to repaint the floor. The current paint is not adhering as we hoped. When we repaint, we'll probably do it in the same color as the step. Trial and Error!
