Drop Zone Makeover with Wallpaper + Paint

Last week I did a fun little makeover on my beloved drop zone and I cannot wait to share how it looks with you guys! I wanted to add a little pop of color to freshen things up for spring and it turned out so darn cute. Plus it only took me about 2 hours total, so it was a super duper easy project. Here’s how it looked before we ever turned it into a drop zone:

When we moved in, this was a little coat closet by the front door. I knew right away I’d want to change it into something with a bit more  personality, especially since we have a mudroom and didn’t necessarily need the extra closet here. I shared the full project in this post, but we removed the door, added shiplap and a bench seat. This is what it looked like after:

This is how it’s looked for the past year and a half or so, but I wanted to spice it up a bit. Here’s what it looks now with wallpaper and a pop of color:


This paint color is called Emerald Green by Magnolia Home. It’s definitely a bit more blue than I was anticipated, but I love how it brightens up this corner. And I have to admit, I’ve been really having fun with more color lately. It’s nice to mix it up!

I’d love to hear what you think of this little drop zone makeover!

    Cute..and do you actually use it? Do you ever bang your head on the shelving when sitting or rising? Or is it more like a shelf for bags?
