You're Name is Mud!

So as you can imagine, I've been busy lately. Who hasn't right? With the holidays coming up and the weather changing I never know which way is up. Do I wear a sweater or tank top today? Is Thanksgiving seriously next week?

Anyway, I wanted to share a few pics of my little mud room redo. Nothing big, but I was pleased with the results.

This is what it looked like before:


Pretty normal mud room I guess. Because the room leads to the garage and connects to the laundry room, a lot of random mess gets caught up in here {as you can clearly see}

In our old apartment we used this Ikea stand for all of the TV "equipment" You know, the DVR, DVD player, XBox etc. All things I don't really care about, but they couldn't just sit on the floor.

Because I keep it real, here it is in it's place in the corner. Dust and all:


I know right?

I have zero use for it as a stand currently. But thought it might be the perfect height for a place to sit. So, with a few knobs from Hobby Lobby, it came back to life. Oh hell, I'll just show you the after pics.







Monograms, hello?!

The pillows, window treatments and seat cushion were all sewn by moi. It made for a fun sewing adventure! Most of the stuff on the walls was created by yours truly.

Not bad for a 'lil 'ole mud room huh?

Love love love it! I so wish we had a mudroom - our laundry area is super tiny. :-(

Looks great! So much more stylish and functional as a seat.

Well, that has to be just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. I LOVE your pillows, the stand makes so much sense as a seat, and I love how you styled the walls! I may have to move in . . .
