Kick off your boots & stay a while…

filed under

Pink tile, green carpet, the wrong kind of wood paneled walls – just to paint a quick picture of how ugly this room used to be.  As a breezeway this room really didn’t serve a purpose, and a mudroom entry is A MUST for a Minnesota winter.

My sketch quickly turned into this.  I am amazed.

 In love with the ceiling.
These cast-iron hooks are from a local gift shop… Made by Creative Co-Op  

 The stain used for everything is Minwax – Dark Walnut  (it has been used for several projects around the house, including the screen door & bar – pictured below.)

    Seriously, this room is gorgeous! Also, could there possibly be any more cute pairs of boots in one place?!

    Amazing work. I have very little wood in my house, basically just the bannister. But, if I did, this is the way I would go. Your photos are very inspirational.

    This is such a great space! I stumbled across your blog from Farmhouse 5540 and I like what I see. I have one suggestion though- It would be a lot better if you used a larger font. It would be so much easier to read!

    It is really appreciated work! To be very honest it can sometimes get really difficult to know which pair of boots is good and long lasting. We present day humans are spoilt for choices. There is an old saying that sometimes too many choices can just be as harmful as very less choices. best boots for women
