My project for this week was mixing things up in the mudroom.
My goal was to give it a little more character....to make it feel more like a room.
I wrote this post a while ago about the secrets of a great mudroom.
I wanted to give my mudroom a personality of it's own by adding a shelf and moving things around.
This was what was on the wall when I started.
Just a simple collage...of photos and Amy Butler paper in frames.
My 'project' manager this week was my Dad.
After I picked up a shelf and brackets at Ikea...he was my main man.
It was great fun working on a little project with my Dad.
He was the 'big cheese'....I played the hand-over-the-tool girl.
Now that we live 3000 km apart...we don't get a ton of 'hang out' time.
So it was nice to do this together....I miss my Dad! I used to see him almost every day.
So here is the 'BEFORE':
In less than an hour, we had the shelf hung.
I love theses new brackets from Ikea with the circle graphic.
It adds a touch of modern fun and interest.
Then I did the fun part~ accessorizing!
I used things I already had~ cost: $0.00
I re-used the frames I already had with the Amy Butler paper.
I re-used the clock.
I added some old family books.
The blue glass bottle was a cast-off given to my by a friend.
Here is the 'AFTER':
And here is the third wall of the mudroom.

Here is the 'BEFORE' for that wall:
Here's the 'AFTER':
Now my mudroom has a bit more style.
I am really happy with this little vignette...and I can change it out whenever I feel the need to refresh.
