If you came here today expecting the big reveal of the mudroom makeover, I’m sorry to disappoint you.
Originally, today was supposed to be reveal day. But most of us gals had delays in receiving products for our spaces, so we’ve pushed the reveal back to next Tuesday. I’m still waiting on two things to arrive I need myself for this makeover.

This past week has seen some decent progress though!
Walls Painted and Prepped for Wallpaper
All the walls going solid white and the portion of walls where molding will be have been painted a crisp white, specifically Bit of Sugar by Behr. I used a semi-gloss finish in their Marquee paint. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because I’ve used this white countless times. It’s my go-to, true crisp white. The semi-gloss finish will hold up to any rough and tumbleness that finds it way through this part of the house as well.
While you can’t really tell, the upper half of the walls, which will get clothed in this beautiful wallpaper, have also been prepped using this wallpaper primer. I cannot wait to get that paper up!
Trim and Moldings Partially Installed
Wait for it….
I’m putting lattice on the walls.
I’ve went rogue, ya’ll. This was not part of the original plan. Originally, I had planned on putting a traditional board and batten style wall treatment along part of the walls. However, the more I thought about it, the more I felt like that was too farmhouse feeling and just didn’t go with the feel of the rest of my design plans – see those here. And then the more I kept thinking about it, the more lattice walls kept coming to mind. I have oohed and ahhed over interior lattice walls (like these) for quite a while now. And so I figured “Why not?! Let’s just do it!” And I did. And I love it so far. Are you team lattice? 😬
As you can tell, the rest of the flooring has also been installed – read more about it here – and the hubs came home after working at the farm Sunday and took it upon himself to knock out all my baseboard in this space, which was a huge help to me.
The old door in here was just a hollow core, run-of-the-mill basic door. It needed to be switched out years ago when we first moved in as it was a huge energy loss (in terms of heat and air) for our house. Dollars literally going straight out the door. Of course, we just never got around to it until now. We still have to add a threshold and some weatherstripping to really lock that heat and air inside, but I’m so happy to finally have this little part of the project crossed off the list and it was only about a $125 fix! The door also got a nice coat of Bit of Sugar.
I’ll be going full-force in here over the next week to get it all done! Follow me on Instagram for updates!
