Mud Room Reveal
The house we ended up buying wasn’t my favorite one overall. We toured dozens of homes and each home had some positives and some negatives. J fell in love with this house instantly. But it took me looking at the home multiple times to decide to put in an offer. There was one room in this house that cinched the decision for me. That room was the mud room, which is why I’m SO excited for the mud room reveal!
I always wanted to be the kind of people who took our shoes off in our home, but it never seemed that practical. We had to bring in groceries and whatever else from the car. (Full disclosure none of the houses we looked at had a garage which I know would’ve eliminated the problem as well. But THIS home has a backdoor that leads directly to the mud room and the path from the carport went directly to the back door. This one feature sold me on the entire home.
Then we actually moved in. And well the mud room fell further and further down our priorities list. The first priority was fixing the dryer vent which had been literally stuffed into the AC unit. It was bad. So we just needed to be able to do laundry. It didn’t matter if it was pretty. So it wasn’t. I’m going to show you the before pictures. Just a regular small room with a washer and dryer. Not only was there no organization to speak of but it wasn’t cute! Plus because it’s where we unloaded the car there was stuff just everywhere! Not only that but also there was nowhere to actually fold the laundry. Which resulted in a never-ending pile of laundry on the couch. I knew I wanted a counter on top of the washer and dryer to fold laundry! Now without further ado the mud room reveal!
