Thank You, Maryann!

I have FINALLY finished the wall in our new mudroom!!

Quick backstory: Last May, we tore down the garage and put on an addition of a mudroom/laundry room on the main floor off the new garage. Additionally, we built a large bedroom for the boys above the garage. I am in LOVE with the mudroom. Prior to this, ALL of the boots, shoes, coats, backpacks etc would be piled on the floor next to the door out to the garage. Now, it's all hung and organized in the mudroom. But, we had this bare wall that I wasn't sure what to do with.

I searched high and low for a console table that was small enough and finally found one for $5 at a yard sale. However, it was hot pink and wood colored. No, I'm not kidding. I gave it a make over pronto...using Rustoleum Colonial Red in a spray can. I so miss spray paint season...

The wall above the table sat bare for a very long time. But, thanks to Maryann at Domestically Speaking, I can finally complete it! I won her latest giveaway for a Burlap Beauty! I had a tough time deciding between her Welcome sign and her Laundry sign, but I am so happy I chose the Welcome sign. I flanked it with a pair of wall hangings from Target (a splurge...but they were perfect for the space), and here you have it! The ottoman underneath the table holds mittens and hats.

Close-up of Maryann's work...sorry it's crooked. I actually hung it straight, but can't seem to take a picture straight. But I'm working on better lighting in pictures...is it any better?

I love how it all came together! Thanks, Maryann!
