Mudroom remodel

New to woodworking, but wanted to share the results of my first project. The original owner of our home had separated the triangular shaped mudroom into an entry and closet. The closet ended up being triangular while the entry / walkway was square in shape. This made for a completely unusable closet – which I hated from the day we moved in. I decided to remove the closet wall and build a locker system. This is my first furniture project – I spent the last two years building my workshop and trying to master some generic skills.

Let me know your thoughts…..

Welcome to LJ, wow this looks great. You have to be proud of the result. What type of wood did you use, and what is the finish? I like the change, larger entry way and got storage with the cabinets above. Did you make the doors? Is the finish like an oil stain? I also like the design of this with the corbels separating the space on the bench. Yeah looks great well done.

way to set something up to fit the space. I would have loved to do something like this, but our house just doesn’t have space for a mudroom area

Great job! I like your design. Very unique. Custom built ins are a great way to personalize your house, and up the resale value!
