Living Vintage


















With two bulldogs and plenty of snowy boots, I've always wanted to have a mudroom! This one designed by Kim Whitley-Gaynor of Living Vintage would be a dream to have! You would have thought the space had been around forever, but Kim and her husband Mark just recently added the new room to their home! As devotees of everything vintage, they used reclaimed lumber from their very first old home salvage project to cover most of the material costs. I am in love with the old beadboard ceiling. Can you believe sanding it revealed that lovely blue paint underneath?! Looks beautiful with the walls (painted Topsail from Sherwin-Williams)! Tons more to read about this inspiring space as well as lots more 'before' photos, so head over here next!

The colourful side of reclaimed wood! Great idea to use, it rather than toss it.
Couldn't help but notice the floor vent in the kitchen in the most awkward placement. I'd be jamming my toe on it daily {and cursing at hubby to move it}.
