We’re back with the big reveal of our Modern Mudroom challenge! We wanted to create a space that functioned like a mudroom, but made only with paint. Each child has a “color” and inside that color is their space to hold coats, backpacks, homework, artwork and whatever else they need to grab on their way in or out the door. We painted matching stools for not only seating, but for a little easy shelf space! Check out this film made with Jenner Brown of Lumineux to see how it all went down. (See the “before” here.)
Now you can see what we meant yesterday about the paint being so rich and creamy! The one coat paint + primer made this project so fast, we were worried that the thickness might make removing the tape a mess but the lines were crisp and really perfect! Also, with our love of bright, bold colors, we were really pleased to see that the super-strength pigments in Valspar® Reserve™ delivered rich and vibrant color as we had hoped. Lastly, you can see in the film that this paint has extreme washability. We tested it out with marker and it’s a fact. It handled a good scrubbing that in the past other paints might have lost some pigment or even removed a little bit. This paint it incredibly durable! After the project each of us agreed that we would use this paint again and again, and really that is the true test!
Keep reading to see more pictures of the wall in action! Thanks again to Valspar® Reserve™ for helping us make this idea a reality!

How creative! I’ve been looking for a “mudroom” solution for our apartment, and this is the perfect way to turn the blank wall into a functioning mudroom. Thanks for the idea!

Are the hooks hung into a stud on the wall or can you place them wherever?
