Like a lot of homes in the US, our garage door leads straight to our laundry room. That makes it the perfect spot for a DIY laundry and mudroom combo. But our house was built before everyone fell in love with mudrooms. After moving in I spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for DIY mudroom ideas. There are really some huge and beautiful mudrooms out there. But I needed to work our mudroom into a 4 foot

I started by removing the doors and drawers.

Then I removed the counter top from the base cabinet.

I marked a straight line and cut away the wood with my circular saw, jigsaw, and my little dremel (aff) did the close cutting in corners and near the wall.

Coat storage was added to the old pantry cabinet and above the bench. Shoe storage was also added to both areas.
The key to making this new mudroom beautiful is all the trim details and the v-groove panel on the wall.

The bench was reinforced with 3/4"lumber. It's extra sturdy for little feet.

The top cabinet stores hats and gloves and displays cute items. It really finishes off the "hall tree" look on this piece.

    What is a mud room please.

      It’s the room you come into from the outside with your muddy shoes, coats and wet mittens. and hats. Particularly practical in locations where there’s lots of rain and snow.

    Your mud room/laundry room looks larger than my bedroom. And the cabinets looked fine before the changes. (And it's difficult to put a table over a top-loading washer.)
