Almost 3 years ago (where does the time go?) Dan and I bought the Wilke Farmstead. (also known as super old farm house that needs a TON of work). When we moved in, there were certain areas that had to be redone and painted for the house to even be livable. The previous owners were heavy smokers so almost every room was washed and painted. Except the mudroom. The mudroom caused many moments of frustration with myself and the children over the past 2 1/2 years. It was always dirty and gross and it made me crabby. I so wish I would have taken legit "before" pictures. The pictures I have are after we emptied it out of all the junk that was in it! Last year we acquired some old lockers (for free...I know!! It had been a dream of mine to find some) and they have been sitting in our garage since we got them. We knew we wanted to move them in, but space is limited. So one day, Dan thought he would surprise me and move them into the mudroom. Little did he know what was about to take place!
I had this "awesome" idea in my mind to paint the room in a color pattern. Once I have an idea it's hard to stop it. So rainbow colors it was!
Aside from the paint, carpeting and door, we were able to repurpose everything we had to reorganize the mudroom. (Well, I did buy the bins for the hats and gloves from the dollar store.)
