I've been blogging about my favorite photos from the year, but I'm so excited that my mud room redo that I updated you on last week is done that I had to blog about it instead and open the blog with this giant run on sentence.
It used to look like this. It wasn't even really a useable room. It was kind of a dungeon.
I'm happy to report that it now looks like this.
The green door leads into a bathroom. Well, at least it will. Currently it leads into a closet of nothingness.
Here are the new steps leading into the kitchen. We raised the floor 3 feet, so now there are only a couple of steps instead of 4 large ones.
The washer and dryer with Craigslist cabinets.
See the white cabinet in the corner? I got it for $10 at a garage sale.
It looks like this now.
The table is from Craigslist. It was maple, but Dad chopped it to the right size, painted the legs black and re-stained the top. The fabric rack is an old magazine rack I had in my office. We took off the back and hung it.
My grandma found this chair at a garage sale, and we recovered it this week.
I still have a bit of organizing to do, but the decor and such are done.
