The mudroom makeover.....
For sometime I have been saying to myself "I must do something about this mudroom!" I come in from the garage put my things away and forget about it - finally I have done what I call a mini-update to the mudroom. It was not bad but needed to be better.
I started with the auto themed hat boxes (they really do contain hubby's hats), they worked great in a closet but not so good in the mudroom.
I covered them with vintage wallpaper (from the 40's) and lined them (the bottom too) with vintage newspaper (NY Times, June 1944). I will put a link at the bottom from a previous blog post showing how to do this and links to resources.
Needed to make a sign as the nice artwork I had there was never hung because I knew it was not right for the space. So hubby cut me a board, sanded it a little and I dry brushed it a pale yellow.
Using a stencil and some Annie Sloan paint added a cocoa brown color to the sign.
To hubby's shop (where my small hand sander lives) to "antique" the sign. After wiping off all the sawdust the sign gets a clear coat finish.
After completely drying back into the house to add a couple of metal evergreens.
Finished product - this time of year all we really need is a windbreaker (sometimes) so for now not many coats here but that will change with winter. Also reminded us to go through things and give hats/coats to the Goodwill that we no longer use.
Farmer's Market Sign, will be available soon on BOM
