Home Improvement #3/ Closet to mudroom bench

This use to be a closet as you can see from the next pictures.  I saw this idea on House of Smith's and loved it.  We were so sick of the closet doors getting in the way and I've always wanted a mud room bench so this was the perfect solution.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  I also love how it's kind of part of the kitchen so the kids will sometimes hang out on it and read while I'm cooking dinner.  So grateful for an amazing husband that is so handy and can pretty much make whatever I find a picture of.
The process of rebuilding

The girls slept on it one night and had a lot of fun.
Hay would hang out in the bottom part and watch movies on the computer.
The finished product....I love it!  I love the plank boards we put on the walls.  And of course I love white, turquoise and gray. 

 Each kid has a basket to put all their paper work in so whenever I find something laying around I put it in there.  They now know to look there if they are in need of something.  It's been great!
 I love the baskets to hold all the odds and ends.  
I bought the baskets at Michaels when they had them 40% off.  I got the hooks at home depot.  We just painted the whole thing white which I love!

Home Improvement #2

We changed the color of our 1/2 bath.  I liked the red but I LOVE the gray blue color.  So much more calming!!
