Mudrooms to Die For

Four unfinished pine modules were combined to create this efficient mudroom unit. To get the look, sand, prep and stain each unit. When fully dry, arrange the three larger modules vertically along your wall and lay the shorter module in front across the floor. Top it off with a soft, colorful cushion for a comfortable shoe-changing station. Shown here: Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner and Minwax PolyShades® in Classic Oak. | Photo: Courtesy of Minwax

Cape Remodel: Small Fixes, Lots More Function

To make this beachy fixture, find a piece of driftwood that’s a few feet long. Use a hand saw to cut off a third of the wood lengthwise so it lies flat against the wall. You’ll need four hook screws; drill a pilot hole into the bottom of the wood for each, then screw them in. Finish by mounting the piece to the wall’s studs with deck screws. |
