You can go straight through the mudroom and out onto the deck. If you turn right, you can go through a door to the garage and if you turn left, you enter the house.
This is the first few years.

This was the other side of the room. The door to the house is on your left. The patio door on the right.
|We bought this hutch at our second hand store. I stripped it and painted it.|
I wanted a large bench in this room and couldn't find anything. So we bought a king-sized headboard and footboard and Mark made a bench. It was originally stained a light color and I stained right over the original finish and made it more closely match our other furniture.
|The door to the garage is on your left. You can see the closet door that's next to front door on your right.|
It was this way for about 8 years. And then I got tired of it. I was really in love with blue and white and was collecting plates and vases, etc. and decided to repaint this room.

You may have noticed that the word 'finished' was in quotes. That's because I'm going to repaint. It's been a hard decision because it took me SO long to finish and I really do like it but...now it doesn't match. It's been this way for only a year and a half.
After many paint swatches and painting a piece of plywood over and over again, tormenting my family with, "What do you think?", I have decide on Sherwin Williams' Interesting Aqua. The can is sitting in the room ready for me to start. I think I can do it. What do you think?
Oh! And I found plans for a big 'side board' that has now been added onto the list of things to build. ana-white rustic-x-kitchen island I think I'd like to put it in here in place of the bench. We will edit it to be appropriate for this room but I love the x's. This is my inspiration picture.
I think I have all the things in this picture and no place to put them - except the 'chia' head and I don't want him - her? I debated for quite a while whether to paint my walls like this. I think it's gorgeous but I can't spend another 3 months stenciling. I'm hoping my stencil pattern will show through my new aqua paint and I won't lose it completely!
Have a great day full of joy!
