J’s Laundry/Mudroom- update

I can’t believe it’s already been two and a half months since I started on the mudroom project at my son and daughter-in-law’s house. What I thought would take just 2 long weekends is still not done.

Being away for 3 straight weekends puts a damper on project time too.  This was the first time I was able to get some work done on J and Yurah’s laundry/mudroom in over a month.

The weather here has been unbelievably beautiful, which makes me jumpy with “spring fever”. I’m feeling the lure of a million other things…yard work, spring cleaning, golf, putting up the gazebo, starting a furniture project. curb shopping….my project A.D.D. is in full swing. 

Honestly, it’s taking every last bit of self control I have to keep from starting something new.

I simply MUST get this done before I can start anything else.


Thank goodness J was home and ready to work with me this weekend!


Can you believe not one picture got taken until we were wrapping things up last night? 

Of course by then it was dark outside and the flash was necessary.  (Sorry about the glare.) 

It’s tough to take pictures of such a small space esp. where semi-gloss paint was used.


Both J and Yurah worked hard, wielding the paintbrushes like pros. They were still painting when I went home last night.


It’s so very close to being done.

Next weekend the floor is going in.

After that comes cabinet doors, shelves, a few finish trim pieces and a new light fixture.

I can’t wait!

  10. Looks great, and your not kidding about the semi gloss paint, gloss paint is even worse. I still can't get a decent picture of my front door.
