Our New Farmhouse Style Back Hall Mud Room Area

I’m so excited to share this project that we’ve been working on with you! I always love when I can share storage-related projects because almost everyone can relate to the need for more storage! We have a big mud room space off of our kitchen, which is the main door that everyone uses for our house, but we realized recently that a mini mudroom in the hall by our back door would make a lot of sense as well, so we went for it!
We actually have a lot of different entrances into our house, but this one is the one leading from the back deck into our master bedroom. This has been a semi-finished space for the last few years, but I found myself lining up out-of-season boots back here, as well as bins of hats, mitten, beach towels, and all that kind of stuff. Since it seemed like such a logical place in our home to have this kind of stuff, I decided just to go with it!
Here’s how the space looked a couple of years ago after we added in the cabinetry along just the one side... If you click over and read the post about that, you’ll also see the before shots from way back when we first moved in here. Scary stuff!
We used the frog tape to keep everything looking really crisp and tidy around all of the trim in this room and also in the all-important spot where the stained wood bench meets with the wall. 
Painting this room was honestly a bit of a marathon so I’m really happy that it turned out so well! Sometimes it can be easy to get kind of sloppy at the end of a long painting session but we ended up with something that’s just as beautiful as it is functional, so I can definitely say that it was all worth it!
