I'm supposed to be putting together TWO different art projects for 100 kids (I'm the creative lead of our Church's 1 week sleepover camp). Sooooo….instead of preparing craft kits, I….redecorated my mudroom!
Whenever I'm under pressure, I paint! Its my way of releasing stress. My husband wouldn't let me near a can of paint, so I had to do a makeshift decorating! I just rejigged my small shelves in my mudroom.
Here are a couple of 'before' photos:
The west wall (makes it sounder bigger, right?).
The south wall. Instead of a great clog collection, it was just a mess! I always wanted to do something great with those clogs, but…it just stayed a mess.
Ok, the south wall isn't changing… Not that its great, its just that its…good enough…for now!
So, as I was a bit stressed and wasn't allowed to touch a can of paint. I had to 'redecorate'. Since I have those narrow shelves above the wainscotting on the west and north walls, I can only put small items. So got rid of the LOVE letters, and messy clogs and just put as many of my vintage Crown jars as I could fit.
West wall 'After'.
South wall 'After'.
Better, huh? It just looks cleaner I think.
By the way, does anyone have any ideas for decorating with a swiss wooden shoe collection? I just collect the small souvenir kind. Please let me know, I love them and am looking for something to do with them! Thanks!
