Last week I was desperate for a little art on the wall so I pulled a few framed pieces for the mudroom. The mudroom is painted Benjamin Moore’s Moonshine with an Edgecomb Gray ceiling.
The mudroom entry turns left onto a hall into the kitchen and right into the front of the house.
Basically the area, small entry and hallway, is pale grey with 2 blue hanging pendants.
The mudroom pendants: one at the exterior door and one at the door to the basement.
I was trying to hide this electric access panel on the right wall.
The access panel on the mudroom wall hides a hole about the size of a dime under which is an electric junction box.
I started by hanging these two framed Irish postcards which hid the panel perfectly.
The access panel is under the top frame.
After searching for the storage box with mirror hangers in it I chose the 4 simplest ones to hang my vintage mirror tray.
I chose the mirror holder on the left for its simple style.
My vintage etched mirror tray.
Unfortunately after poking 6 holes in the wall (2 were in the wrong spot) I thought the proportion of this mirror too small and visually lightweight for the slate look frames beside it.
I like the frames but the mirror is just not right.
I still wanted a mirror so I picked one that I possibly slated for the master bathroom.
I hung this antique mirror so the bottom edge was at the same level as the bottom of the pictures.
On the wall opposite the door I hung a happy red and yellow flower painting which accidentally ties into the colors in the postcards.
This painting is the first view upon entering from the side porch.
I think this room also needs a proper bench which I’m planning to build and some sort of shelf or narrow console under the flower painting.
A view from the kitchen hall.
I also need a long runner for the hall and the closet doors need to be stained or painted.
And all the trim needs to be painted.
I’m enjoying the new mudroom but photographing it is challenging.
Do you mix up your color scheme with pops of bright colors? Or are you a pastel lover like Charlie?
