    • Add a Mudroom to Your Entry

      Mud may connote a mess, but a well-designed mudroom is anything but. One unused wall adjacent to the door to the garage became a fun (and functional) mudroom with the addition of bookcases, a wall cabinet, and a new pendant. Two bookcases ($34.99) anchor this makeover. The baseboard wrapping the base creates a custom-built look. For extra storage, divide the bottom units to create cubbies for shoes.

    • From Cabinet to Bench

      A wall cabinet ($93) with new hardware, a shelf cut to fit, and a cushion now makes a comfy spot to take off shoes at the end of the day.

    • Warm Up with Wainscoting

      For extra durability and charm, cover the wall between the bookcases with wainscoting. A shelf and coat hooks above provide the perfect spot to drop your keys and hang your jacket.
