White and Wild: The Power of Paint

Often times we are inspired by a room and know just what we want from it.

Other times…we feel lost and confused. And when looking at this – maybe hopeless.

For those of you who can’t decipher this room. It is a pantry/secondary kitchen/laundry room. In modern language we call this the most enviable Mud Room a busy family could hope for. I have learned that when I lack inspiration the place to start is adding simplicity via a clean slate. It doesn’t get any cleaner than white, so I headed in to the trenches and came out wearing white paint and a smile!

Obviously, there is much left to do including removing the stovepipe, painting the drawers, painting inside the cabinets

(Oh wait, this isn’t the place for my to do list) -- but sometimes by putting the cart before the horse you get that darned horse to move!

Notice even the countertop was victim to my primer/paint combo

White does a make a world of difference in freshening the place up! That is going to be a great mudroom! Also, if that is your actual butt in the pic up top, I am totally defeated and jealous, lol!!!
