Mudroom Built-ins (One Room Challenge) - Week 3

Today I am back with my progress on the One Room Challenge. To refresh your memory, this 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. In my last post, I shared my space and makeover plan.

See how I transformed my mudroom in 6 weeks with the One Room Challenge!

Before we dive into my progress so far, let me step back and give you the background on this space. If you are new here, my hubby and I have spent the last two years completely renovating our basement. This space used to be a dark, narrow hallway and teeny bathroom. This picture was after we ripped out the bathroom, but you can see how small and dark the area was.

We ripped out the bathroom, took up the tile, replaced the door and window, hung drywall, installed luxury vinyl flooring, base molding, and painted the walls/ceiling. This is the last space in our basement to finish and this challenge gives me the push I need to do it! (After 2 years...I am pretty much over this reno!)

OK, now that you are caught up, here is what I have been working on since last time!

I painted the inside of the door a pretty green called Frosted Glass by Deco Art. I was so surprised (and happy!) when my hubby was immediately on board with my color choice!

My hubby drew up the plans with all the measurements. Thank goodness for him, because this is not my strength! I am the one that wants to just start screwing the wood to the wall!

We framed out the closet and bench. Within the closet we will also be adding some shelving and an outlet, so we can have somewhere to plug in our re-chargable batteries that we use for the stick vac and drills.

Our plan for this week is to finish cutting and installing the pieces for the top of the bench and dividers, paint the bench, and drywall the side of the closet. You can follow along in my Instagram stories for real time updates.
