The Start: $100 Room Challenge: what room to do?!

The mudroom, such a wonderful concept. A room that everyone can put all of that stuff that they were. A place to store muddy boots and hats. mittens and everything else that comes with living in a climate that actually does have 4 seasons. Unfortunately, I am not one of those lucky people that have a mudroom. Where I live homes are older and mudrooms were not popular back in the 70’s or 80’s. So we ended up making our own mudroom out of an area that we already had. Enter the kitchen closet.

Mudroom closet

When we bought this house, “no closet space”  is one thing I didn’t say. There were closets everywhere! So when I suggested to my hubby that we rip out this closet in our kitchen, he happily agreed. So that is what we did. Out with the doors and in with the bench.


Since we did that 6 years ago, our tastes (and family size) has changed. We are no longer a family of 3, we are now a family of 4 and our children are older and both in school. So what better time does the $100 Room Challenge hosted by Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry (if you haven’t checked her blog out, you must do so now! It is amazing!) come into effect but September (which is our back to school month). Not only does it fall perfectly with that but being a challenge to only spend $100 is perfect because we are on a tight budget after spending 3 weeks in Florida.

So follow along with me as I change our Mini Mudroom, and see how far $100 really goes. Also, remember to go and check out all the other wonderful folks doing this challenge with me, I am sure there will be a lot of beautiful spaces to see!!So check out the link below.

  1. I so know what you mean about no mud room. I also don’t have tons of closets either. We have large closets in our bedrooms, but not any extra ones. =( I can’t wait to see what you do!!

  2. What a great use of that closet space! I can’t wait to see how you update it. We gave up a mudroom when we moved to our current house, so I feel your pain!
