Tackle It Tuesday Meme


Well, we didn't exactly completely tackle it, but Joe made some great progress on our new mudroom (where our washer/dryer used to be, we are turning it into a mud room).


Peeling off the awful pink/flowery wallpaper the previous owners put up (I'm not a fan of pink or flowery!)...


Joe had to redo/redirect the ducting, since the vent was going to be *in* the closet if he left it the way it was, so he redid it so that the ducting would come out of the front of the new closet at the bottom, and he built a sub-floor to accomodate it...




Drywall going up and wiring run for switch and light...


We are on our way! We'll be putting in this closet and a bench next to it and shelves above the bench. Should make it SO much easier for getting everyone out the door in the mornings and having everything we need right by the door. I can't wait!

Great tackle! That is going to be a really useful space when it is all done. I did my "mudroom" (we call ours a breezeway) this weekend and it feels great:-)

Now that is a tackle project! I definitely agree with you on the wallpaper!

The people who owned our house before us put up horrendous border and paint. (and we still haven't got rid of it all, it's been 5 years!)

Great tackle!

Nice tackle! I love home improvement projects! We have an enclosed porch in the front of the house where I have shelves for our shoes and racks for coats and umbrellas and what not. It's great! Takes a lot less time to get out the door when we know where our shoes and coats are. Plus, the organization is so much neater (I hated when we had shoes piles by the front door).

Thanks for stopping by my blog recently. Always nice to make new bloggy friends!
