When a Mudroom Needs a Mudroom

Leave a comment

As soon as we bought Providence Acres we added a wall off the carport to creat a Mudroom. We are so happy to have this space. In summer it keeps towels, sunscreen, flip flops, and outside grandchildren toys like bubbles confined. In the winter, coats hang on the hooks. The problem is that we sometimes […]

Creating a Mudroom 


Well, after 6 months, we have 99% completed our mudroom. We started with one large room that at one time was a two car garage.  The room was great, but in a home that is on a dirt road, in the country on 15 acres, in an area that gets a lot of rain, with […]

The Almost Finished Mudroom Bench


I have to wonder, am I ever going to be able to show you a FINISHED project?  I mean one that is completely done with nothing left to do kind of done.  I think as long as we are weekenders that may not happen.  It takes an hour to drive to our closest Home Depot […]

Creating a Ship Lap Wall for the Mudroom


Eight years ago the second owners of Providence Acres, our weekend home, took in the garage of our rambling ranch.  The end result was that there was more room inside the home, space for a dining room and more usable space. See the beam  in the photo above?  That is where the garage wall used […]

Lately all I hear on HGTV right now is “open concept”.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love having a large open family room, dining room and kitchen, but there is something to be said for walls, too.  I like walls so much that I just convinced Mr. Math to put one up at […]

I really like fall. I like the cooler weather- we live in south east Texas which is sometimes like walking on the face of the sun and other times like being in the Amazon jungle- depending on the humidity. I seem to naturally gravitate toward warmer colors. My homes have always had a touch of red in […]

Dresser to Mudroom Bench


My mudroom bench started life as a dresser. I found it on the side of the road waiting for heavy trash pick up. It was a mess! The top was in pieces and two drawers were broken. In spite of the shape that the dresser was in, it was solid wood and had dove tailed […]

Making a Tufted Cushion for the Mudroom Bench

1 Comment

We are making progress on the Mudroom Bench.  No more showing it to you until it is installed!  I had planned on using an outdoor cushion that I bought on clearance but Hubby did not like how it fit the bench and honestly I wanted something a little more swanky.  We have both put in […]
