If you’re looking for your sign to do a home project, here it is! I took a few days and transformed my dark mudroom into a bright plant room.
My mudroom is the last room in my house that hadn’t been completed. It was different from every room and ended up a mess.
Since I’ve started collecting plants, I knew I wanted the majority of their home to be in there. It gets a ton of light and is really has no other purpose than housing Max’s kennel and my pets food.
Either way, the dark walls and unkept look of the room was bumming me out.
So, I changed it.
It took me about three days (toddlers) and a can of white paint to brighten up this space.
Like everything with home ownership, the rooms not complete. I want to add shelving, hang more pictures, and utilize more hanging plants.
It takes time though!
Right now, I’m focusing on all the positives features that I LOVE. I seriously keep looking in there and just smile.
This is what I get to see whenever I’m in my kitchen. I love all the brightness in this room. The back wall needs some art hanging up, but planning on adding shelving there.
It’d also look so cute with Christmas lights.
When summer is over, this space will have way more plants. The vast majority of my plants are outside enjoying the summer humidity.
For now, I get to showcase some of my favorite vintage pieces.
They make the room feel so much more homey and show my quirkiness too. I’ve loved finding some of these rattan baskets and shelves!
I mean, who doesn’t love a little rattan?
When my hanging plants come inside, there will be so many different types of vintage plant hangers. I can’t wait to see them all together. Maybe I’ll have to find more too. Just kidding… maybe?
When I realize I was committing to painting and redoing this room, I bought myself a sign for a little motivation.
A room I can showcase my love for both plants and true crime… just perfection. This piece will definitely be hanging where I can see it whenever I want.
Honestly, I’m excited for the room to get fuller, but summer can stay for a while longer.
My other inspiration to get this room done is Max. He needed an updated space too since this is where he has to stay some times.
Of course, it needed to be cute.
The organization of Max and the cats’ food is everything. I love that they have a place.
All of their treats and food have their own containers. Max’s treats are from a cleaned candle jar, which I’ll share how I did soon. Fun fact, big Crossroads Candles fit long dog treats.
Mila even approves of this space and treat container. She can easily climb up there and spoil her favorite dog.
This little space transformation was so needed.
Being a homeowner is a lot of work, but with a little time and paint, our whole house feels lighter and more complete. This feeling is what makes everything worth it!
What do you think of my mudroom turned plant room? Are you working on any home projects?
