I know it’s Labor Day weekend and everyone is probably off doing fun things, but I’m just too excited to wait any longer to share an update on our mudroom makeover!! Remember when I mentioned wanting to tackle this room in my list of dream projects I shared here?! Well it’s finally happening! First we had a light-tube installed to bring in natural light (this room was SO dark with no windows) and then we just had the wall removed this past week!! I’m blown away at the difference this made and I can’t wait for you to see. OK, here’s how it looked before the light-tube was installed:
Very dark and sad, right?! No bueno. Here’s how it looked after the light-tube:
Sooooo much brighter!! That light-tube is amazing. We found a local skylight company that was able to install this for us and I’m SO happy we did. It made a huge difference in here. It’s literally just a large tube that goes through the roof, into the ceiling here, and reflects the sunlight. SOOOO snazzy.
Next up it was my dream to remove the section of wall separating the mudroom/laundry room from the adjacent hallway. The was a big undertaking, but we got it done! Here’s how it looked before:
You can see how this section of wall really blocked off the space. No bueno again. Here’s how it looks now:
Ta-da!!!! SO crazy right? I can’t get over how much bigger this whole room looks and feels. Obviously we have to fix the floor and re-paint this wall, but holy smokes I LOVE IT.
We also had to get an electrician to move that light switch over before the wall could be removed (you can see it on the left there), but it was 100000% worth it. I’m so happy with how this turned out and I cannot wait to get going on the next steps of this project. We’ll be installing cabinets over the washer/dryer, doing new tile, and adding new light fixtures. Can’t wait to update you again soooooon!! xoxo
