Before and After Mudroom

This is the mudroom coming from my driveway.  This past year, for my birthday, we repainted and added new overhead cabinets for additional storage.  Before there was a shelf with baskets but it still stayed a  little messy.  Now the mess can be hidden behind cabinet doors.  The cabinets were unfinished open stock from Home Depot.  They were painted white and cabinets knobs were installed that were ordered from ebay.  (Just a little tip, I changed out all my cabinet knobs and pulls last year and saved a bundle by ordering them from ebay.  Before ordering make sure you look at the dimensions of the knobs and check different vendors.)  We had to change out the light to a flush mount since the first light was in the way when you needed to get in the cabinets.  The seat was switched out so it could be stained and match the banquette seats in my breakfast area which can be seen from here. 

This is the before pic....

and now the after.  Brighter with more storage!
