THE MILGROM PROJECT TWO: Remodeling the Mudroom

As you have seen in previous posts, our “laundry room” has been in the process of turning into our MUDROOM! YAY!!!

But it has been

After plugging all the previous laundry water lines and electrical and adding the shiplap to the wall, it was time to remove the wood flooring and add some sweet tile.

I had many people ask me why I was removing wood in this room if I did not have to; and the answer was because I wanted to be able to put snowy and rainy shoes/clothes in here without worrying about warping wood! I have never seen REAL WOOD in a laundry room before! I do not want to know what would have happened to this flooring if the washer had ever leaked! (EEEEEEK!)

Can I just say how thankful I am to have a husband and dad who is willing to help me do all these projects?!Β πŸ˜˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Next up was adding the new tile and expanding the entryway!

Since this space was no longer a laundry room with loud washers and dryers, I added into my design plan to remove the door to the space. We simply removed the door and then took off the casing and door frame. After looking at the entryway with all of them removed, I decide I wanted to also remove a few 2×4’s as well to make the opening even bigger! Once those were taken out, we added new drywall and mudded it all up! I LOVE not having a door to this space because there are so many doors already in this little nook! Now we can come in from the garage and walk STRAIGHT into the mudroom to put away our things and shoes without any doors in our way!

 Just waiting to finish my lockers!!! YAY! 😍😍😍😍


Okay lockers.. I have waited a LONG time for you to arrive at my house.. (8 weeks to be exact.. but who is counting..Β πŸ‘€πŸ™ˆ) You are officially washed off/cleaned out and ready to be painted!!

Now if I can get some good warm weather this week so I can get outside to work on these babies I would forever be grateful!Β πŸ™ŒπŸ»Β Can’t wait for you all to see what I have planned! 😍😍😍😍#oohlahlahdesigns


And just for fun… here is a sneak peak of the lockers!!! One down- four more to go!!Β #oohlahlahdesigns



Wow! Where did August and September go????Β πŸ™ˆΒ I have been one busy woman- but I have been also staying busy with Ooh Lah Lah Designs as well!! Like finishing the master bathroom! And here is a throw back to when we had an orange bathroom on day 1 of moving inΒ πŸ˜‰



Last time we saw the master bathroom, everything was done except for the floor tile.


THIS is what it looked like during demo. That tile was CRAZY thick and man was it messy!!! We are thankful for the help during demo as well as the advice for laying the new tile down!! Although- I believe this is the second time I have run out of either tile or grout right at the endΒ πŸ™ˆΒ So my quick tip: ALWAYS BUY EXTRA PEOPLE!!Β πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜‰

oh.. and we also painted over the last bit of orange paint that was behind the toilet area




I am happy to say that it is finished and we are LOVING IT!
