|The mudroom with damask stencil|
But after thinking and thinking and thinking about it, I painted over my stencil job and made the room 'Interesting Aqua' by Sherwin Williams. It's lovely and I really like the color but it's looking a little 'plain' after all the pattern. I'll finish the decorating and decide if it needs a stenciled pattern over the paint - lol.
We've also had a bench in this room that my husband made out of king-sized head board and foot board 10 years ago. We have loved it but lately I've wanted to have a big 'buffet' at the front door.
When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas this year I requested he make me a table for this spot. And he did! In two days!
On Thanksgiving Day, while I was fixing our dinner and waiting for company to arrive, he was out in our garage sawing away. Then two days later, on Saturday, he brought all the pieces into the mudroom and Matt helped him put it together.

|We used a Kreg Jig to make pocket holes to screw the table together.|

|added the bottom shelf|
|then turned it upside down and attached the top|
We found the plans on ana-white.com The plans were actually for a kitchen island and if we ever move I'm hoping that's what we can use it for.
In the meantime, I still have to finish the skirt on my slip cover! Right? :)
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for! God is good all the time.
Love and blessings!
