Laundry Room Turned Mudroom

I was inspired by all the mudroom pictures I am seeing on Houzz. I had moved my laundry room upstairs off my master closet and with a door coming in from the backyard this area was the perfect spot for a mudroom since I have 2 boys who are very messy! My first challenge was removing the laundry shoot that was in the corner. I think whomever built it intended on it being there forever! I took a whole day to tear out. My biggest surprise while working on this project was the unevenness of our floors and ceiling. You don't know how things slope slightly until you are building built in floor to ceiling cabinets and shelves. It really took a lot of measuring and remeasuring because each built in was a slightly different measurement. When I was completely finished with both sides of the room I was so excited I wanted everyone to see it. It is exactly what I wanted and has been an asset for our family since its completion. People who see it do not believe how amazing it is and always assume it was built by a contractor. It makes me very proud to say I did this and proves that anyone can design/build something if they set their mind to it!
