January's main focus has been the mudroom. Specifically, it's been adding storage to this oft used space. We added hooks to the walls for coats, put an old dresser against the wall for hat, mitten, and shoe storage, and made do for three seasons of snow, mud, and sawdust. The room was constantly overflowing with boots, shoes, coats, and gear.
So we went to Pinterest for some ideas on storage units, morphed a few of them together, and came up with a plan. Chris got to building and here's where we are at the moment.
Chris built the unit in the workshop and then disassembled it for painting. That also allowed us to more easily move it into the mudroom. There was a brief moment where we considered repurposing it...

This is just one side of the mudroom. The other side will have a boot bench that follows the corner as well as hook storage above. No deep cupboard though. Once that's complete we'll take another look at the upper cabinets and see how we want to tie the two sides together.
