In my new house I have a mudroom, well technically it’s a mud-hallway, but I love it. We had our builder make the closets smaller so that we would have room to build in some lockers. We searched online for inspiration and this is the sketch we came up with.
It’s a rough sketch, but you get the idea. Luckily, my handy father in law stepped in to make the lockers for us (which was so nice!) He came and installed them a few weeks ago.
Tyson loved watching the workers! We also signed our names on the wall behind the lockers. If anyone removes the lockers later (I’m not sure why they would!) they will find our autographs, along with the year.
After the lockers were installed, I needed to paint them and find some hooks. Here is how they looked before and after paint and hooks.
I even found some perfect baskets at Target to go in the cubbies.
I’ve thought about adding a cushion or some vinyl to make them more cute, what do you think? Do they need more or just leave them the way they are?
I just love how they turned out! They are going to be so helpful in keeping all the backpacks and jackets off the floor. I’m especially excited to use them when school starts.
If you want a full tutorial on some mudroom storage, I saw a great one at A Charming Nest.
