Where are we now?

It's been a little over a month with our home remodeling project and it's not quite done, but we're so close.

I'll let you see for yourself. Today's tour will focus on the creation of our mudroom.

Now you see a closet...


Now you don't...


Bye bye former laundry room

Hello bench

Hello cupboards

Hello white paint

Hello yellow paint

Hello slate floor


Hello closet door (which is already filled with my vacuum, ironing board, tv trays and cleaning supplies). Now, we just need a few hooks, cupboard doors and a few baskets for storing shoes and winter gear. I find myself peeking from the kitchen into my mudroom every chance I can get. I just can't stop smiling at it. My new mudroom almost makes me want winter to hang around alittle bit longer...just kidding.


In a few days, I'm hoping the cupboard doors will arrive and can be installed so that we can show off Emma's bedroom and the new half bath/laundry room. Emma's windowseat is just the perfect spot to curl up with a good book.

I have big plans for decorating the new half bathroom/laundry room with all kinds of vintage beach items. I can't wait to put closure on this home remodeling project. Thanks for taking our mudroom tour.

Holy cow! Your mudroom turned out fabulous! I especially love the white paint! We are having someone come in and build us two cubbies in our mud area. I can't wait!

Wow! What a difference a month makes! I can't wait until we are finished with everything in our house. . .which may still be a few years down the road.

Everything looks beautiful, and I can't wait to see the rest of the improvements. Emma looks right at home on her new window seat!

Many hugs,
Cindy

That is such an amazing transformation! Gosh, that looks so great! I would be smiling too.

Fingers crossed that the doors come and the project will be completed before the weekend!!

Tell Emma that Halley LOVES the color of her room :)
