Morning Friends. It has been awhile since I've posted about the house. Ever since we got the house in the dry things have been going at a snails pace. As expected. We knew the detail of the inside would take longer, so there hasn't been much to update as of late.
I decided to go ahead and share some inspiration for different rooms in our home. I think it will be fun to compare the end results and see how close I came.
Okay, so the mudroom. We will use the mudroom entrance as our main way of coming in and out of the house. It is more than just a laundry room but not a huge over sized mudroom.
//One// We built a pantry in our mudroom, but decided that we had enough room in our kitchen to add a pantry, so we are converting it into a bench. I like the open cubbies on top and bottom for shoes, baskets, etc. The more storage the better. Love that there is room for hooks for backpacks and coats too!
//Two// I love this neutral folding hamper. It will be a great catch all to put in the corner for clothes that are waiting to be separated.
//Three// Now this is something that we already have. It is a laundry sink from Aquatic. It is a multipurpose laundry sink and it operates on an air bath system. I will be able to use it for everyday use and be able to wash my dedicates in it with the air bubbles built in. I am super excited about this little addition to our mudroom.
//Four// I bought this painting a few months ago from Hobby Lobby and I wanted the color scheme to incorporate the light blue from the hydrangeas. I will certainly find a spot for this to hang as well.
//Five// I love for things to have their place. Since our mudroom will house most, if not all of our cleaning supplies this is a great piece to keep our everyday cleaning items organized and within an arms reach, and I like the easy option of being able to carry it from room to room.
//Six// I love the character that these hooks can bring to any room. Since we have hooks in our bench to house hats and coats, I figured this would be used as a drying area to hand clothes on. I may hang some aprons on them as well.
//Seven// While looking through pictures, thank you Pinterest, I loved the look at these shelves over the washer/dryer. It will be nice to have a lot of shelving for storage of laundry and cleaning items. I don't prefer floating cabinets so I like how these actually sit on the counter top. I like the different texture the wood panels give behind the cabinets, too.
How beautiful is that wood counter top? In a perfect world I would love for us to have a piece of black walnut to balance off from our dark wood flooring. I really feels like it makes the white cabinets pop too.
Right now our front loader washer/dryer are stacked, but we will be putting both on the floor and I like the idea of the pull our drawers in between the two. I may use it to house laundry baskets, or may use them for more storage.
