Coastal Mudroom Makeover

Coastal Mudroom Makeover

Our latest project in our Nashville home was our mudroom.

Let’s take a look at how it looked before…



This is how the mudroom looked when we bought the house.  It had great bones, but was a little too farmhouse for us.

We knew that we wanted to change the light fixture and paint the cabinetry, but our designer, Lara Cella suggested also painting the shiplap and that made a world of difference.

We positively love the brick herringbone flooring.  I mean, all the heart eyes!

So here’s how it turned out…



Really the only thing that stayed the same was the flooring.  And the door paint color.

We repainted all of the trim work and shiplap “Pure White” from Sherwin Williams.

The built-in cabinetry, which serves for storage of all sorts of things, we repainted “Nightfall” by Benjamin Moore.



The light fixture is a show stopper.  It’s a beautiful coastal glam addition to the entryway with a touch flat gold.

As for the hardware, we got rid of all of the rubbed bronze pieces and replaced them all with some gorgeous gold pieces I found online.  Matt and I were both pleasantly surprised with how high quality knobs and hooks were. 

It’s always scary buying items online that you can’t physically see the quality with your own eyeballs in person.

All hardware is linked below.  I’m so happy I went with these affordable options as opposed to the knobs I found at Restoration Hardware.



Another small change that made a big impact was the addition of relaxed Roman shades.  The linens added a small amount of softness to the space that also helped to tie in the linen shade on the light fixture.

I had these shades lying around because they were ordered for my studio but were sent in the wrong length.  Since they will never be closed, I figured why not use them instead of trashing them since they were the same window width and I’m so glad we installed them.



I love the way the mudroom turned out!

What do you think about the final product?  Leave a comment below and let me know!

The only thing left on our to-do list is a carpet runner on the stairs.  I myself have slipped and fell going up those stairs so I know firsthand how badly they need some grip on them.

Do y’all want to see which carpet runner we go with?  If so, I’ll keep you updated!

    It turned out beautiful guys! I absolutely love the color of the cabinets. Painting the shiplap white was a good call. Everything pops so nicely. I love it!
