Entryway Mud Closet: Part 2

Yesterday we finished the mud closet! If you missed the Part 1 post, it will you give you a little background to this project. Like I mentioned in Part 1, my parents came in town for my birthday yesterday and we finished the mud closet with them!

Before they got here, Gabe did a few final preparations.... he removed the door and hardware and patched it all up...

Once my parents got here, we unloaded some things that Mom and I had ordered from Ballard Designs... that is where we got the benches for the closet...
