I am getting so excited to share the completed Lowes Fall Mudroom Makeover project. You can read more about this project HERE. In a nutshell- I am partnering with Lowes to makeover one room for one deserving family that lives near my hometown. The family we selected are so sweet, they have three darling kids all under the age of four with one more on the way and they have a mudroom that needed an update. I got to meet them this weekend. I have been working with them via email to select everything for their mudroom. I just went to their home this past weekend to install everything! We finished late in the night and I plan on going back this weekend to take pictures when there is some light.
This is my design board for their mudroom. Their mudroom also functions as their entry. It is a large mudroom in my opinion, lucky ducks! And they need this space for their three darling kids and hard working parents. I based the room off of the ideas that I found from their Pinterest board. I could tell that they liked pattern and weren’t afraid of wallpaper. I also noticed that they had pined several photos of the same herringbone tile, so I knew that was a go! (I will be linking to all of these items in my reveal post next week!)
These are some tips that I used for designing their new Mudroom. These tips would also work for designing any room.
Step #1- EVALUATE
Evaluate how you use the space. I asked the homeowners what they have in each cubby, drawer and closet. That way I can determine what kind of storage we need. And if some of those items are really in the best place in the home.
Step #2- LISTS
Make a list of what drives you crazy about in the space…and also if there is anything you like about the space.
Step #3- BE HONEST
Be honest with yourself. Do you really put things back where they go neatly? If you don’t take the time to declutter once in awhile or you don’t put things back neatly then you might want a mudroom that has built in lockers that you can just close the doors and not look at the clutter.
Step #4- INSPIRATION
Start gathering ideas. I think the best source for inspiration is on Pinterest or on Magazines. I shared all of our inspiration photos on THIS blog post.
Thankfully had a team of very talented and the hardest working Lowes staff to help execute the projects I had for this mudroom.
Here are the before photos for the homeowners mudroom…
Here is the list of things that were on our To-Do List-
1- New flooring
2- Paint walls in Pure White from Sherwin Williams HGSW4006
3- Cover up the popcorn ceiling with wood planks
4- Paint closet in Naval from Sherwin Williams HGSW3351
5- Wallpaper the statement wall
6- Install new lighting
7- Fun part- put in all the new furniture and accessories!
Here is our Lowe’s team and my husband working on the Mudroom Remodel last weekend and some sneak peeks of the install!
We had the new tile installed the week before we showed up to do the rest of the work. First and one of the most important steps was to lay down the Ram Board.
This is cute Jessica prepping the thin wood boards for the ceiling to cover up the popcorn ceiling. Jessica is the store manager who was my hero on this project! She helped so much. I will be sharing more about the steps we did to cover up the popcorn ceiling on a separate post, stay tuned.
We fit a lot of us in this mudroom- see how great the size is! We got right to painting after the Ram Board was installed. See the sneak peek of the closet- all painted navy…oh I love the finished project!
Next preparing the wallpaper to go on our statement wall.
You can see a glimpse of the wallpaper! We love how it turned out. And you can see Jessica installing the first piece of the wood for the ceiling.
We also had to paint one of the pieces of furniture. Yes, this was a brand new piece. I loved the size and shape for their mudroom. I wasn’t certain the color would work when I ordered it. As soon as I saw it I knew it need a coat of white paint and it would be perfect. You can find this piece HERE (such a good price!) and we painted it in Fundamental White from Sherwin Williams.
