Mud Room? Maybe a Mud Patch

I was going to call this a Mud Room Makeover… but as you can see this is more like a Mud Patch. This is the entry way from the garage to the house. This was never really completed as all the baseboard in the house was changed to a 7” baseboard, but this little patch of floor seemed to get overlooked…um….. for 3 years.
So here it is. The best thing about this little landing is the beautiful oil painting done by my father years ago. This lovely will find another place in the hallway upstairs.
No baseboard, blahhhhhhhhh.

  1. It was worth the wait. I'll bet that every time you walk through there you go AHHHHH! It is lovely.

  2. They do tend to run away when we voice these things out loud, don't they? : ) I think it looks great. I have a little area that you come in from our garage to, but it is like a four corners state type thing. To the left is our kitchen, to the right the laundry room and straight ahead is our home gym and a french door to the yard. It's pretty clear here since there is always foot traffic going somewhere in this area.

  3. Oh so beautiful!! I love how it totally changes the look of your little hall. We did a board and batten in our entranceway and I'll tell ya, that treatment has changed my life! :) I think my husband must be with yours because he's seemed to have disappeared too!

    Your new mudnook is so very pretty!! I just love it!

  6. Such a perfect solution for that area. Looks beautiful!!!

  7. This looks so nice. Thanks for sharing it.

  8. The landing looks gorgeous. What a perfect solution for that area!

  9. Oh how pretty. Be still my heart. When you find him, tell your hubby to pat himself on the back. What I want to know...did he have that deer in the headlights look when you said that??

  10. What a transformation. I don't blame you for wanting more of it...hurry and do it so I can see it. Find that husband of yours and get started. :)

  11. I hope he comes back, because seriously that is gorgeous and would look fabulous all over the house! It really is a wonderful transformation!

  12. Excellent transformation Lisa! You are so amazing at DIY stuff! I wish my husband and I had that level of talent!!

    Looks great!!


  13. Hi Lisa,
    I just stumbled across your beautiful blog...And am so happy I did! I love, love, love how your mud room turned out, it's absolutely fabulous. Oooo! I can't wait to look around your blog some more. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

    Hugs and Smiles,
    ♥Ana~A Petite Cottage

  14. I love calling it the mud "nook," too. So cute!

    It looks wonderful; get ready to keep that white paint of my summer jobs to paint the scuffs on my white wainscoting.


  15. Beautiful. I love the sophisticated yet warm look it had. Jealous!

  16. Love your mud room.
    Hope you don't mind, I'm going to show your post to Mr.vintagesouthern. I would like to (I mean like for him to) do something like it at the end of our upstairs hallway.
    Thanks for sharing.

  25. Perfect -- thank you for sharing, Lisa!

  26. Ah Lisa ~ too funny! After the kitchen I suspected he headed for the hills... Love your "patch" ~ it looks wonderful and really gives the space some character.

  27. I love that you made the rails wide enough to hold the large hooks. It looks so good!

  28. What a transformation!!! I always LOVE board and batten! You guys did a great job... I'm putting you in the Spotlight on Saturday at the POPP.

  29. It's amazing how much architectural woodwork and paint can add to a space. I would love to see the process if you have pix. Jane F

  30. Wow what a great job!!! I love it now!

  31. I am floored, it is amazing how you can transform anything! That's a pretty scarf, too :)

  32. Hi Lisa, How are you? Sorry I have not made my way over here it seems for awhile we have not seen your Mud room, don't see no mud. It looks so organized and nice to have those hooks in there...they come in handy for back packs and towels...and as shown scarfs and hats. Looks great!

  33. WOW!!! What a difference that makes, sweetpea. Very dramatic. Nice to meet you. Just perusing some blogs tonight and found you.

  34. Aww, I love it! Nice job! Lezlee
