{DIY} Craigslist TV Stand to Custom Mudroom


Hotel living is starting to wear on me. While there are many nice things associated to not having to maintain a home, I miss having a home, and I really miss having a childproofed home! Anyway, while I wait for moving day I am keeping myself busy by planning for my new home. Read on for my latest big idea...

I have always dreamed of having mudrooms like these...



Not the most practical thing to want as a military wife since we are moving every 3 years. Our new house doesn't have a mudroom either, but I came up with a brilliant idea of how to give it one. Since this is a rental I can't build in a mudroom, but what if I made a portable one? One that can go with me to all my houses too! Best. Idea. Ever! All I am going to need is a cheap, old entertainment center...

I have already been trolling the Anchorage craigslist. I found these listed for $30 and really either would fit the bill for my modifications...


My hubby is really supportive and very innovative himself, but sometimes he needs some help understanding my vision. When I saw the "she's lost her marbles" look on his face, I didn't want to lose him or my readers on this one so I made up an illustration...

See the possibilities? Wouldn't it be grand? The best part is that I could let myself fall in love with it because it would be moving with me! So, let's just hope the lady emails me back! ;)

I have couple other projects in the works and I'll be sharing them soon! What have you guys been up to? Any new year's projects?
