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.

I am jealous, I wish I had a mudroom. The bench looks great!

Someday I dream of having a mudroom like that! Or a mudroom at all, really. Looks fab, you guys!

K has some sweet skills in wood working. I am impressed and happy he likes to make sawdust too.

Looking awesome!
One of these years we'll get our shelves built in the mudroom too...
