May I take your coat?

The mudroom is mostly finished!
Here's the before shot, to refresh your memory:

And here's the much improved, filled with conveniences, now with storage, after photos:

Jeff finished the bench this morning, and if you look closely, you will notice how out-of-level the floor is. The bench is 100% level, the floor slopes about 1.5 inches.

The walls were painted Sherwin William Shagreen and trim was painted with (leftover) Benjamin Moore Decorator's White.

The hooks came from Lowes and the cabinets are the Expedit and the bookshelves are the Besta from Ikea.

We aren't sure if we'll add another bench, or just put some spare chairs to use in the other space.
I want to add a clothes hanger for drying mittens and snowsuits, a mirror, and a key-holder, but for now, its usable and lit!

Looks fantastic! I'm jealous of all that wonderful space. Did Jeff do all the trim on the windows? I love the look of the hook rows.

Wow! The mudroom is amazing. So large and spacious. Amazing

Thanks for the nice comments! This space has made a huge difference in reducing the clutter in the rest of the house.
