When the spouse is away, the wife…will convert a closet into a mudroom.
It took Imgur user BUMilksteak being out of township for the weekend for his wife and her mother to realize that the empty closet by their entranceway wasn’t particularly inviting. In a few simple steps, they magically transformed the space into a mudroom, complete with a seating area where they could take off their boots and awesome shelving units they could use to store them!
This is what the closet looked like before. As you can see, it was about as welcome as a prison cell.
BUMilksteak‘s spouse and her mommy picked out this cute design for the pillows and cushions.
With a few committees, they created this bench that would subsequently double as a storage unit.
For the top of the bench, a painted piece of plywood did the trick!
The inventive dames removed everything from the closet and added some simple paneling. That change totally transformed the space!
After that, they added some overhead shelving.
Then they placed the cushion on the top of the bench along with some matching fling pillows.
Now all of their shoes have a home!
Pretty impressive, right? It’s such a great way to maximize space.
Before I wrote such articles, I didn’t even know what a mudroom was, but I have to have one after seeing this project! What space-saving tricks have you used in your home?
