Basement Mudroom Reveal (One Room Challenge) - Week 7

Yay! We made it to the reveal! I cannot tell you how good it makes me feel to have this space done, since it was the last area in our basement to finish. And, I have to say, it turned out pretty fantastic! If you are just joining me, I am a guest participant in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda at Calling It Home and this week all of the participants are showing off their finished spaces.

See how I transformed a dark basement entry way into a beautiful bright mudroom in just a few weeks.
This was my first One Room Challenge and I decided to start small and tackle our empty basement entry and turn it into a mudroom area. Here is where we started; we basically had to build from scratch.

After 7 weeks, we now have a beautiful and functional mudroom at our basement entry!

We had already installed the new vinyl plank flooring from Lumber Liquidators and painted the walls a light gray from BEHR. I painted the door a lovely Frosted Glass shade from Deco Art.

We built the bench and storage closet using 2x4's and scrap wood we had on hand. The closet got painted to match the walls and the bench was painted a darker shade in BEHR's Gotham Gray. We added a large Steel Bar Pull and self-closing hinges from D. Lawless Hardware to finish off the closet.

I made a coat rack out of a piece of leftover base molding and five 3-Prong Satin Nickel coat hooks from D. Lawless Hardware.

My hubby DIY'ed the bench cushion using 4 airplane seat cushions and leather he got for a steal from an auction. (He works for an aerospace company and they occasionally get rid of excess supplies) I hope to have a tutorial up soon for this project.

I painted a large wooden "H" the same color as the door and picked up a couple of rugs from Hobby Lobby for $30. I found the baskets for $12 each at TJ Maxx and I like that they have a lid to hide our old shoes.
