This is what my hubby has been working on these past 2 weekends. We almost have the mudroom the way we've always planned it to be.
He built the benches first and then added the bead board and trim. Each section will get a double coat hook and the dividing boards between will get another hook down lower for things such as backpacks, my purse and the like. I'm hunting for wire baskets that fit to corral the shoes to go under the bench.
Either way we go, we are excited to almost have this project complete and this room a lot more functional.
