DIY Basement Mudroom (One Room Challenge) - Week 1

I am so excited to be joining in the One Room Challenge as a Guest Participant for the first time! If you have not heard of this, it is a twice a year blogger event hosted by Linda at Calling It Home that consists of a 6-week challenge where 20 featured designers and hundreds of design bloggers get to showcase a room makeover that they’ve completed in just 6 weeks.

Follow along with me on the One Room Challenge as I transform my mudroom space in 6 weeks.

I have been following along for a couple of years now, but have not been able to dedicate 6 weeks to any room due to being consumed with the basement renovation. This time I plan on showing you how I transform an empty basement entry into a functional mudroom space.

Each Wednesday, you can follow along with 20 featured designers as they complete a room transformation.  On Thursdays, there over 200 participants that link up with their own makeovers. Make sure you follow along and be inspired by all the dramatic transformations over at Calling It Home.

This is the space as it stands now...pretty empty.  At least I have a blank canvas to start with!

Here's my plan for the mudroom:

  • Build a built-in bench and locker space to hang dog leashes, coats, and sports equipment, along with cubbies to store rain boots, sneakers, and work boots
  • Add hooks and baskets for more organization 
  • Build a small broom closet for a swiffer, broom, and stick vacuum 
  • Paint the door
  • Add trim to the door and windows
  • Add a rug and baskets
