Custom for ORC! Week FOUR

Welcome back to ORC!  If you are new to our challenge and want to start at the beginning, click HERE and you can see what we've been up to!

Now here's what's going on ...

These wonderful New England Colonial Homes that were built in the 60's and 70's ... that we love ... have  low ceilings and NO mudrooms.

This brings on a big DUMP of things when kids, husbands ... and yes, even me!  ... walk in the door.

For our Keeping Room we wanted to address this clutter thing with some personality, function and BEAUTY!

Our Custom ... portable ... MUDROOM!!

Okay ... I know the baskets are ASKEW!!  They USE this piece every minute of the day ... so please, no judging!!

And the Ceiling ... remember the inspiration rooms ?  I wanted to paint these beams so badly ... so did SHE ... we sampled a few ... we got stopped by her husband.  I hate to admit this ... but HE was RIGHT!!!

So ... I have to say the past couple of weeks have been a little boring and we put together the neutral basics of this new room ... well stay tuned PLEASE ... because next week ... We Bring on the BLING baby!
