One of our employees, Jaimie Kenney, completed this project in one day from start to finish. Jaimie was looking to add extra storage to her mudroom hallway but didn’t have the room to put the traditional mudroom locker storage. This project cost under $300 with all materials, hooks, paint and yellow baskets for the top.


What you’ll need:

  • 1: 1/8″ x 4′ x 8′ bead board
  • 4: 1″ x 2″ x 8′ pine boards
  • 6: 1″ x 6″ x 8′ pine boards
  • finish nailer
  • semi-gloss white paint
  • white paintable caulk

Step 1: Identify where your studs are. Jaimie put masking tape on the floor to remind herself where they are. Then she found the center of the wall and attached the bead board to the studs using a finish nailer.

Step 7: Sand any rough edges and paint 2 coats of the white semi-gloss paint, let it dry, then caulk all seams to fill in the cracks. Then paint additional coats of paint as needed for desired look.
