We were in desperate need of some functional storage in our laundry/mud room. I had been searching for a long while for a solution and almost built another mud room configuration from this site until I saw the 'Smiling Mud Room'. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for! This is the first thing my husband has ever built and I think he did an awesome job. We had to change a few things to fit our room and taste and there are still a few things that need to be finished (hooks, trim pieces and painting). It took him about 20 hrs total to get this far.

Thanks! I wanted to be able to reach the shelves without a step stool and I am not very tall. I agree it would have looked better if they went to the ceiling but functionality won out over style.

Wow, this is really impressive -- and encouraging to know it was the first thing your husband built. Thanks for sharing!
