For starters, I spent much of the weekend looking for a new runner for the mudroom. I searched tons of internet sites and looked in every local store I could think of. I had already checked in Target, however we have four different Targets in our immediate area, so I decided to check a different one...and there it was, the perfect area rug...and it came in a runner!! It had all the right colors, plus it wasn't too light (remember 90% of my guests enter through my side door - go figure) and it wasn't too dark.
The next thing I needed was a bench. I went to Lowe's to buy the materials to make a bench. However, once I gathered everything I needed including the legs, the wood top, the piece to attach the legs, the foam, the batting, the fabric and the nail head trim - it was going to cost close to $100. So I decided to go home and shop my home. That's what I literally did - I walked around my house seeing if there was anything I had that I could either make into a bench or that would work.
here to see where this whole renovation began. I'm thrilled with the outcome. Let me know what you think of all the finishing touches. I always love and appreciate your comments.
