Mudroom - before

I had a request to show photos of my mudroom before it was a mudroom.   I searched back about 7 years and found a few photos of before, during and after.

Our current family room was once a garage.  One of the previous owners turned the garage in to a family room and added a separate garage that was attached to the house by an open air breezeway.
Below are two separate views of the breezeway from Sweet Pea's 3rd birthday party....

 Looking towards the driveway....


Standing on the driveway side and looking through the breezeway to the deck beyond....


Starting to close it in.....looking towards the new driveway side....


Same view through the breezeway to the deck beyond again....



The new wall of custom cubbies....cabinets above, shelves, beadboard backing, and drawer below.  We purchased them in paint grade wood and painted them ourselves a deep army green.  They are always a mess but I can't imagine what we would do with our "stuff" without them!

Nearly 7 years later I added additional built ins to better use the space....this is the beginnings of a bar....


Standing in the family room and looking out to the mudroom - this is my desk built at bar height to allow for a view out the window.  The door to the right of the desk leads to the garage.  Shelves were built around the window....


Closer view...


Getting closer...


You get the idea of the bar....we still had to install the wine fridge....


Any questions about our mudroom?


Had to include a few cute pics I discovered from her 3rd birthday...


Who's Medusa in the background.... good thing the cuties are in the foreground....
