Inside our front door was an ugly closet with mirrored folding doors that screamed like a tortured cat whenever we attempted to open them. As a result, we never used the closet.
So, with a little help from the Rehab Store (Habitat for Humanity used building supply store) and about $150, we turned it into a mudroom.
The cabinet is a $15 upper kitchen cabinet with the doors removed, nail holes filled, and some trim added before painting with water-based enamel.
Making the cushion for the seat was a challenge thanks to all the corners but we managed it complete with a velcro strip along the back so the cover can be removed. It took about two weeks of evenings and weekends to find all the goodies and put it all together but I think it turned out well.
