10. DIY Mudroom Bench with Hooks and Open Shelves
If you don’t have enough space for a mudroom, try crafting a DIY bench at the awkward corner behind your front door. It would surely do in a pinch. Well, actually, you can purchase this bench in many “IKEA like stores” if you’re not up for any woodwork challenge anytime soon.
To make this bench, you’re going to need 3/4” MDF sheets, 4 pine corbels, pine boards which are cut into strips of 17 inches, 10 inches, and 3.5 inches, MDF crown moldings, nail filler, wood glue, and screws. More about that in description area.
Since you will build three open shelves underneath the bench, you need to get wire baskets first before assembling the pieces because the shelves have to be 2 or 3 inches bigger than the baskets. So, measure the length, width, and height of the baskets, and apply it to the boards.
You can paint the bench and the wainscoting paneling the color of your choice if you want. But here is my advice, paint it the same hues as your trims and baseboards. It will bring harmony to your mudroom.
9.Small Hall Tree Bench
Living in a small space is not a dead end. Cheer up! You can still do something with your home to make it look organized and clean. Let’s begin with the entryway.
This small hall tree bench would fit your entryway beautifully and keep your wet coats and jackets organized.
To make this bench, you’re going need to make the sides of the bench first. And to do this, you need to cut four 2×8 pieces into 17″ each. Add two pocket holes to two of those four pieces. Then, join the one with pocket holes with the one that doesn’t have any to form one piece of sides of the bench. Repeat these steps for the other piece.
For the bottom and top pieces, your direction is almost the same with the previous one except the length of the cut.
They must be 9” longer than the first side. Then, assemble the pieces using wood glue and screws.
Once the bench is done, you can now assemble the pieces of tree hall frame and backing to bench top, and add shelf and corbels. Last, here comes the most exciting part – the finishing. For a more rustic look, if that’s your thing, you can stain and coat it with polyurethane.
But if you want to have something chic, paint it with same color you use for your baseboards and doors.
8. Multifunctional Entryway Nook
Who says a mudroom isn’t a wonderful place to hang out? This mudroom for instance. It is not only functional, it also makes a pretty good hideaway.
Just like any other mudroom before it, it features some hooks that you can use to hang your bag and scarf, two drawers that you can use to store your shoes, and wicker baskets for other miscellaneous items.
What makes this bench unique is the ultimate comfort provided by the cushions, soft seat, and beautiful star hanging on the wall. Lastly, the bench is quite spacious. Your little princess can play dolls with her friend and you can read your favorite horror novel comfortably there too.
7.Creative Mudroom Idea on A Budget
Longing for a fantastic mudroom that you can proud of, but you’re on a tight budget? Well, watch this! Let’s see if you can gather these things. You’re going to need some buckets, a ladder, a used window, and a cabinet door.
Attach the buckets to the ladder by drilling two holes on each basket and screw them on. Then, attach the used window that has been painted previously (if you want) to the wall to beef your mudroom up. And for the cabinet door, who would have guessed a single cabinet door can turn to be a reliable key holder by adding some hooks?
6. DIY Farmhouse Bench
You’ve got some hooks and you’ve also got a shelf? But where’s the bench? Okay, you’ve got new homework.
Here are the things you need:
(2) 2x4x8 (For the apron)
(2) 2x6x8 (For top)
(4) Osborne Wood Country Bench Legs (hard maple)
DeWalt Plate Joining No. 10 Biscuits
and a link inside description area.
To assemble the pieces, you need to cut biscuit slots on the edges of each of the 2×6 pieces that have been cut into the lengths of 41 inches previously. Once all the biscuit slots have been cut, begin assemble the pieces using wood glue to make the bench top. Then, make the bench apron, and – finally – add the curvy bench legs.
5. One Mudroom for All
Do you often find your kids’ stuff are mixed up in your mudroom? Here is my advice. Make four compartments on the backing plate and Hang a wire basket on each compartment along with two hooks. Because everyone is going to use these compartments, attach a label on each compartment so your kids will recognize their stuff easily.
You might also want to add three pieces of wood that divide the space underneath the bench into 4 compartments. This idea will minimize the clutter.
4. Drop Spot in A Super Awkward Space
A three-feet empty wall space? What can we do with this super awkward corner? Because even a small bench won’t fit.
Good news, you can still gobble up this space by making a new drop spot. You only need to make a wooden panelling that holds the hooks, corbels, and shelf in place, and you’re good to go.
It’s eminently simple, but works like a charm. Find more detail in description area. What I am just telling you is merely a preview.
3. Mudroom with Chalkboard Finish
Are your kids always bickering about their school supplies? Well, that always happens. And it will be happening tomorrow if you don’t end this now.
One of the cool ideas to overcome this problem is by adding chalkboard finish to your mudroom. Divide the paneling into two or three areas. Add one or two hooks on each area, and add the chalkboard. The chalkboards work as a label as well. You can write your kids’ name on the board and you can also use it as a message board.
To sweeten your mudroom up, hang or put a huge photo of your kids on the shelf. And if it is possible, apply a chalkboard finish to the side-wall “if any” so you can write broadcast messages for all your kids to notice. I am pretty sure they won’t miss it.
2. Hall Tree Bench with an Abundance of Storage Space
The key of keeping things tidy and organized is the amount of the storage space you have. The more space you have to store things, the better, just like this blue hall tree bench.
You can find lots of open shelves under and over the bench. They can be used to store various kinds of different things at once and for more storage space, you can also use a large space on the shelves to store bags or wicker baskets.
1. Rustic Drop Spot
If you are not confident with your carpentry skills, you can use some old wooden crates and turn them into some gorgeous open shelves where you can store your shoes, boots, or even books.
Drive nails to the wall to attach two pieces of wood used to hold hooks in place and that’s pretty much it.
To jazz it up a bit, show your favorite photos off by hanging them on the wood plank and enjoy your new corner storage.
Those are 10 awesome mudrooms make over ideas that you can proud of.
Some of them are easy to make while some others are quite complicated. You have my apology for that and that’s why you should not miss a link inside description area.
3 Creative and Clever Bed Designs

3 Creative bed design ideas for a small bedroom2
00:00:04,760 --> 00:00:08,320
1.Ceiling Storage For Bed3
00:00:08,320 --> 00:00:10,840
Most are familiar with the Murphy bed,4
00:00:10,840 --> 00:00:12,370
which allows users to fold it against the wall when5
00:00:12,370 --> 00:00:14,540
it is not in use.6
00:00:14,540 --> 00:00:17,200
While this most definitely saves space,7
00:00:17,200 --> 00:00:19,420
having your bed on the ceiling will give you the8
00:00:19,420 --> 00:00:22,200
maximum amount of square footage of your room.9
00:00:23,540 --> 00:00:26,380
Though its origins are from a French manufacturer,10
00:00:26,380 --> 00:00:28,740
the idea in place is essentially a pulley11
00:00:28,740 --> 00:00:30,820
system for the mattress and frame.12
00:00:32,000 --> 00:00:34,560
Do not be intimidated by the notion,13
00:00:34,560 --> 00:00:37,680
as installation isn't nearly as complicated as it sounds,14
00:00:38,060 --> 00:00:41,260
with Ikea now dipping its toes into this forum.15
00:00:41,860 --> 00:00:42,800
00:00:43,340 --> 00:00:45,340
If you decide this route is for you,17
00:00:45,340 --> 00:00:47,900
use a preexisting frame by BedUp18
00:00:47,900 --> 00:00:49,800
(or a similar competitor)19
00:00:49,800 --> 00:00:51,860
that raises and lowers the mattress20
00:00:51,860 --> 00:00:53,920
but still gives you the freedom to determine21
00:00:53,920 --> 00:00:55,520
00:00:56,020 --> 00:00:59,320
2. Compact Living Style Storage Bed23
00:00:59,320 --> 00:01:01,080
by Yesul Jang24
00:01:01,080 --> 00:01:03,860
Graduate Yesul Jang was the original mind25
00:01:03,860 --> 00:01:05,720
behind the millennial bed that is raised to26
00:01:05,720 --> 00:01:08,680
waist level so items like dorm room accessories27
00:01:08,680 --> 00:01:10,760
can all fit underneath,28
00:01:10,760 --> 00:01:11,960
as sort of a makeshift29
00:01:11,960 --> 00:01:13,880
bunk bed of practicality.30
00:01:14,460 --> 00:01:15,600
00:01:15,600 --> 00:01:17,760
a fabric curtain can cover your belongings32
00:01:17,760 --> 00:01:18,740
so that they are not in view at33
00:01:18,740 --> 00:01:20,120
00:01:20,120 --> 00:01:22,420
In using such a curtain, they are cheap35
00:01:22,420 --> 00:01:25,100
and quick to replace if they incur damage.36
00:01:25,940 --> 00:01:28,900
Because statistically sleeping space and storage37
00:01:28,900 --> 00:01:30,900
take up the most real estate in a dwelling,38
00:01:31,280 --> 00:01:33,640
it is a natural blend to pair them in the39
00:01:33,640 --> 00:01:35,300
same square footage.40
00:01:36,020 --> 00:01:39,820
3. A DIY Hidden Roll Out Bed41
00:01:39,820 --> 00:01:42,560
Rearranging furniture is enough to give anyone42
00:01:42,560 --> 00:01:44,980
a headache, and never is this more true than43
00:01:45,160 --> 00:01:47,460
00:01:47,460 --> 00:01:50,340
Their cumbersome size and stature will45
00:01:50,340 --> 00:01:52,180
make you tear your hair out,46
00:01:52,180 --> 00:01:54,520
but fresh ideas have come to fruition47
00:01:54,520 --> 00:01:56,160
on how to make hiding them48
00:01:56,160 --> 00:01:58,020
00:01:58,020 --> 00:02:00,780
One such solution is an accordion style panel50
00:02:00,780 --> 00:02:02,770
of wooden strips that are each connected by51
00:02:02,770 --> 00:02:05,060
hinges on both ends.52
00:02:05,060 --> 00:02:07,800
In essence, the platform folds into a drawer,53
00:02:07,800 --> 00:02:10,600
with one piece of wood folding on top of another54
00:02:10,760 --> 00:02:13,040
as if you are stacking them.55
00:02:13,040 --> 00:02:14,980
When the drawer is pulled out,56
00:02:14,980 --> 00:02:16,820
the wooden frame of the bed pulls flat,57
00:02:16,820 --> 00:02:18,280
with the hinges flush.58
00:02:18,280 --> 00:02:20,700
making a level surface for the mattress.

1. A DIY Scandinavian Style Nightstand.4
00:00:10,380 --> 00:00:12,640
If your goal is to bring more neutral colors5
00:00:12,640 --> 00:00:13,960
into the flow of your room,6
00:00:13,960 --> 00:00:15,000

try a Scandinavian style nightstand.8
00:00:18,180 --> 00:00:21,420
Using 10 pieces of unfinished, non-stained wood,9
00:00:21,420 --> 00:00:23,980
a beautiful and simple creation can10
00:00:23,980 --> 00:00:26,100
be brought to life.11
00:00:26,100 --> 00:00:29,760
The wood components include a top sized appropriately12
00:00:29,760 --> 00:00:34,940
at 14" by 18," along with a bottom 13.25"13
00:00:34,940 --> 00:00:36,560
00:00:36,560 --> 00:00:38,520
With a front and back measuring15
00:00:38,520 --> 00:00:41,220
6.75" X 16.5"16
00:00:41,220 --> 00:00:43,210
the dimensions will create a desk looking17
00:00:43,210 --> 00:00:47,820
nightstand that has the ideal width for one drawer.18
00:00:47,840 --> 00:00:50,220
The length houses a lamp and clock19
00:00:50,220 --> 00:00:53,260
without looking cluttered or distracting.20
00:00:53,640 --> 00:00:57,540
2. Moebe Large Shelving System21
00:00:57,540 --> 00:00:59,940
If you do not have the skills and patience22
00:00:59,940 --> 00:01:02,000
with a set of tools, and would prefer to keep23
00:01:02,000 --> 00:01:04,360
your large living areas organized,24
00:01:04,360 --> 00:01:07,040
the Moebe large shelving format is prudent.25
00:01:07,760 --> 00:01:10,200
Capable of taking up an entire wall,26
00:01:10,200 --> 00:01:12,200
the system utilizes wooden wedges27
00:01:12,200 --> 00:01:13,460
to keep shelves from28
00:01:13,460 --> 00:01:14,980
00:01:14,980 --> 00:01:17,400
Rounded steel uprights connect to the shelves30
00:01:17,400 --> 00:01:20,140
in seconds by being placed through the pre-drilled31
00:01:20,140 --> 00:01:21,360
00:01:21,360 --> 00:01:24,140
Black stained ash wood and oiled oak33
00:01:24,140 --> 00:01:28,280
offer two diverse palettes to blend in to any setting.34
00:01:29,000 --> 00:01:31,980
The Moebe approach is the most painless experience35
00:01:31,980 --> 00:01:34,860
possible start to finish to consolidate messy36
00:01:34,900 --> 00:01:38,260
rooms fluidly without brackets, glues37
00:01:38,260 --> 00:01:41,060
and other frustrating elements that slow you down.38
00:01:41,980 --> 00:01:47,070
3. Flexible Shelving System from Benjamin Hubert39
00:01:47,070 --> 00:01:49,280
Differing from the Moebe shelving system is40
00:01:49,280 --> 00:01:52,420
the Benjamin Hubert inspired flexible alternative41
00:01:52,440 --> 00:01:54,540
known as 'Shift.'42
00:01:54,540 --> 00:01:57,220
The idea behind its foundation is derived43
00:01:57,220 --> 00:01:59,700
from retail outlets, who are in frequent need44
00:01:59,700 --> 00:02:02,060
of swapping out their displays.45
00:02:02,060 --> 00:02:04,180
The genius of the setup is that magnetic46
00:02:04,180 --> 00:02:07,440
panels are mounted to the wall, with shelves having47
00:02:07,440 --> 00:02:10,960
the capability to be moved at the drop of a hat.48
00:02:12,060 --> 00:02:14,280
This process can be done at home, by lining49
00:02:14,280 --> 00:02:16,820
each shelf with a magnet on the bracket that50
00:02:16,820 --> 00:02:19,540
will hold it in place on the panels.51
00:02:19,540 --> 00:02:22,040
With both the base and shelf boards connecting52
00:02:22,040 --> 00:02:24,880
by these magnets, changing the style and appearance53
00:02:24,880 --> 00:02:27,510
of the furniture can be accomplished in seconds.54
