First, we painted the mudroom the darker of the two shades of green we have elsewhere in the house:
Then my Mister installed the supports for the bench:
Then he installed the bench seat:
Next he placed the verticals:
Then he put in the supports for the shelf, and the shelf:
And finally, he put in the cross pieces that will hold hooks for coats and backpacks:
He'll have to go back and fill the nail holes and repaint, and we have to find some hooks I like, then we'll have somewhere to put all the coats that are currently piled up on the bench. The brown thing is a little shelf/cubby thing we bought at ikea. After we had all the white stuff up I didn't want to put this back up- maybe we'll have to paint it- but it's great for holding car keys and cell phones and stuff like that.
