Our Spring Mudroom Wall Makeover + Home Depot giveaway

Article may have affiliate links. If you make a purchase, I may earn a tiny commission at no extra cost to you. Big thanks for supporting my small business.

Our mudroom wall unit that we created over a year ago has been a blessing in keeping our coats and shoes organized. Unfortunately, our home lacks in closet space so the coats would continually pile up on a chair near our side entrance. This mudroom wall, loaded with coat hooks and a DIY shoe storage box, got a pretty new makeover recently sporting new spring colors compliments of Procter and Gamble and Home Depot. 

Spring mudroom wall makeover #brightideas

Seriously, I love this springy space! A big difference from the pile up of coats from winter.

Good riddance winter!

 Spring mudroom wall makeover #brightideas

I headed to The Home Depot and picked up my cleaning supplies and some new paint. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color to one element in your space. The tangerine color that I added to the lid of the shoe box was just enough color to add a wow factor to the wall.

First, I started by removing all of the winter coats and boots storing them in our basement closet. Once everything was removed I cleaned the shoe storage box out with Mr. Clean with Febreez and bounty paper towels. Nothing better than a clean smelling shoe box! ha.

It’s amazing what a little cleaner, water and elbow grease will do for a space.

After a coat of white paint and tangerine for the top, the shoe box is ready for spring!

Orange is one of my favorite colors and it coordinates with just about every other color (in my mind) so I thought it fitting for this wall space.
