Farmhouse Mud Room



Remember "Bess" before?

The drawers were too damaged to salvage


Updated Mud Room (a farmhouse must have!)



All we did was add a shelf and paint the inside (sorry, no picture). The outside needed a little cleaning and some "new" old knobs. My mother-in-law made the cute skirt from an old piece of bark clothe.


I took the old window coverings (vintage tablecloth) from the dining room and put them here in the mud room.

Now the room seems a little more inviting, since this is where almost everyone enters our home.

  1. "Bess" looks really good, and what a nice update you made to the mud room. It is true - living in the country side this is definitely where most people enter the house.

  8. Hi!
    Just found your blog from the link party at Miss Mustard Seed's. Love your project; especially the use of the vintage fabric. I'd like to know more about the cork wreath above the cabinet. Looks really interesting. After reading your blog for a bit; I realize we are kindred spirits. I'm a new follower!

  11. Perfect solution! It looks great! And I love your wall color. It looks real close to my living room and dining room color. Everything looks good on it, doesn't it?
