This blows my mind. Too awesome, too cute, and too fabulous.
Can you send your dad over to my house? I live close by so it wouldn't be too hard 😉 Seriously, so lucky and it looks gorgeous!! Can't wait to see the finished project!
Beautiful job! I love the wall treatment that you decided on! Can't wait to see the rest.
So excited to see it Shelley! It will be fabulous 🙂
Looks so good!! What a amazing transformation. I love how the space now works for your house looking forward to seeing more.
Love it so far! You guys never stop, and I'm jealous…wish I was that motivated to finish things. I have craft and remodel ADD. Ha.
I can't wait to see it!
Very FUN! I've been waiting for the next installment.
WOW! I"m definitely pinning this under 'future home'. WE are in the process of getting bids for our new home so this little nook is a MUST HAVE in the mud room. Love this! Can you just come to Nashville and give me lots of ideas for my new home?!?!?!! HA!
I can't wait! It's going to be awesome!!!
The horizontal beadboard is pure freakin' genius!!!!!!!
this looks SO great! I can't wait to see the finished look! Awesome. 🙂
I seriously have entry envy….looks AMAZING so far!
ahhhhhhhhhh (that was me…singing!) oh my word – I love it already! the sideways planks, the color, the shelving…oooh can't wait to see it all pulled together! but you're not BUSY or anything – so we'll just have to be patient! oh & cute pet fly you showed off! 🙂
Wow! I can't wait to see it all finished!
I love all the pictures and how you followed it like this! I love this it's incredible. So congrats and good job! I think I might tell my custom home builder to include a closet like this.. 😉
That is looking so beautiful! Love all of your gray and white – and that shelving looks so functional and gorgeous 🙂 Where did you get the mirror? on the right of that bottom picture? It looks so good on the gray wall 🙂
Oh Wow! That is gorgeous. Now have I got a nook? 🙂 Jude.x
WOW!!!! I wish I had someone handy to help me with all the crazy ideas I come up with!! I can't wait to see it finished!
Wow LOVE it!! This would actually be a good idea for our front entryway closet… haha…just a question what gray paint did you use? I am currently looking for a nice gray for my living room!
No offense, but I'm really glad I'm not your neighbor. I would be so jealous of all the fun stuff you do to your house all the time, and envious that I will NEVER be able to do something so cool! Can't wait to see it finished 🙂
Oh my goodness this is GORGEOUS!!!! I'm sure you are going to give the whole break down of supplies….but,I don't think I can wait!!!! 🙂
What and where did you get your beadboard? AND what about that gray paint????!!! Love it! Thanks
LOVE IT!!!! So creative!! I have a coat closet right by my front door!! Hummmm…I think you have just given me some inspiration! You're the BEST!!
Looks great! I can't wait to see the finished product!
so fabulous. i can't wait to see the final result.
I totally let out those same squeals of project happiness too. You are so lucky to have some awesome dad and hubby. I love how it is all turning out. Can't wait to see the finished product.
Wow, I can't wait to see it all come together. Just curious how long ago did ya'll start this project.
I love it so far! I used that same Dwell fabric for a headboard I made last year. I love it and it holds up well, you won't be disappointed. Can't wait to see the end result!
looks gReat so far! can't wait until the final details! tfs!
I love it Shelly! And it is great inspiration for me because I want to do something similar in our new house! We have to close in the front room to make an office for my hubby and I want to steal some of the space to make a mudroom like nook! Thanks for the ideas!
oh my! this is so amazing!! i love love love love it!!!!
wow what a difference already, looking good girl!!
I really like what you're doing. I live in Florida and they don't have coat closets. I now wish I had one.
Wow, I love it so far!!! Can't wait to the finished product!!
I am in LOVE!!! I so wish I had a closet space like that near my front door.. I've been trying to get creative and think of how I could incorporate a spot like this is my house especially since I don't have a mudroom 🙁 Loving how you installed the bead board horizontal instead of vertical! I would have my whole house wood plank walls if I could! Can't wait to see it totally decked out with decorative accents in the HouseofSmiths kind of way!!! LOVE IT!

Wow! This is awesome, can't wait to see it all pulled together. You have inspired me to start a few projects…what's sheen of paint do you usually use? Semi-gloss, flat, glossy? What's your "go-to" sheen for paint?
Fabulous! So functional and so pretty. Excited to see it all decorated!
Oh Shelley it looks absolutely stunning! Did you use the whole space that was the cupboard before, or is there still another cupboard space next to your nook? I love that you used the beadboard sideways, it has such a sweet vintage look done that way. Can't wait to see it finished!
Excited to see it, your such an inspiration!
Shelley, I adore your style! If you ever get board of your house, you can come on down to provo, and give me some tips! 😉
Looks so good! Love having handy men around to make projects come to life! I am excited to see the finished project..I know it is going to be fantastic as is everything you do!
WOW! I am loving this!!! Can not wait to see the finished project!
Bead board sideways?! Genius!!!
I cannot wait to see the finished closet. Your blog has given me the inspiration I have needed to tackle my house and make it mine. Thank you!!
Love it! I've always wanted a nook…now I really want one!
I love how it's coming together. Truly beautiful!
Looking forward to the big reveal!
Incredible transformation, I've enjoyed the progress views along with your notes.
Our home has next to no storage space, you've given me some great ideas, thank you.
OOHHH!!! SUPER DUPER excited!!!! It is looking LOVELY.. Can't wait to see the Finished Product…. 🙂
Love it! Great work. We did a mud room and door casings (trim) too! Hope you check it out on acharmingnest.com.
Gorgeous!! Can't wait to see it completely finished!!
I can finally exhale! I've been holding my breath anxiously awaiting to see this . . . and it is so worth the wait! It's beautiful!
Your Man is the MAN!! Looks amazing!! Can't wait to see all the fabulous touches you add!! Even your pet fly knows how great it is!! LoL!
It looks so great, even without all the decorative stuff! Can you tell me what color your grey paint is?
This is looking great! I love that you turned the beadboard on its side to make it look like paneling. It looks so charming and really fits well with the style of the rest of your house.
OMG, Shelley I can already tell it's going to look so great! Love how you can take something that most people have, but wouldn't think of utilizing to it's fullest…and making it beautiful and functionaly. Can't wait for the final reveal. justhadabrightidea.blogspot.com
This looks amazing! Can't wait to see the finished product. Where did you purchase the fabric? I looked on line and didn't see it. I would like to buy a little!
Genius! Can't wait to see the finished product. Gotta go, looking for a closet to transform! 🙂
WOW!! And everything they ↑ said!! I can't wait to see it finished. 🙂
Freaking amazing! Really. I'm blown away. And turning the board on it's side??…so genius! We are going to do beadboard in our 1/2 bath and now I just may be turning it on its side. Woo hoo!
you guys are awesome!!
Wow! I can't wait for the final reveal! This is amazing. Now I wish I had an entryway closet I could dismantle and do this to. LOVING IT!
just wondering if your Dad is available this weekend…I would love some built in storage in one of our rooms:) I Love the way everything is coming together!! The beadboard set in on its side is awesome!
Oh I am loving this!! I can't wait to see the final product!
Loving your choices–especially the beadboard horizontal. Your home is more modern and it goes perfectly. Sometimes, we have to let those hubbies help with the decorating and Carson's gray is wonderful. Can't wait to see it done!
WOW What a transformation! Goodness me! I have been trying to figure out a 'drop' spot at my house, hopefully my hubs will be on board with the ideas I have about it. Wish it could be as big and nice as yours geez. You never cease to inspire!!
Can't wait for the finish!
Oh wow! Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!
Looking awesome!! And yeah, your Dad is totally rad! Can't wait to see it all done! *high fives*
YOu know, every SINGLE time I come to your blog my husband curses under his breath at the TO TO list forming in my head…. THANKS for the inspiration! You two rock!
Oh my LANTA! Seriously?! I LOVE this. Way to attack that space!
This is going to look awesome AND be super functional…the perfect storm! I love the idea of flipping the beadboard onto it's side.
Awesome project! I can't wait for the big reveal! Glad I'm a subscriber 🙂
It's looking great. I can't wait to see the finished entry nook. Of course it will be amazing!
Wow! That looks amazing!!! I bet the cushion is going to be spectacular, too 🙂

I've been waiting for this post and can't wait for the final product!! Great job 🙂
Oh.my.word. I am so excited to see the finished product! You are amazing, LOVE love love your design taste. This is one of my faves so far and I haven't even seen part 3, lol. 🙂
WOW!!! Love it!!! so awesome!!!
someone may have already asked this, but what color is the gray in the nook? i just had a bout of gray paint mishaps! i am on #3!!! errr…lighting and such….anyhow, love your house. i need a dad who lives closer and a husband with more time. really, how does your husband have the time to do so many projects? mine is lucky to be home before the kids go to sleep…..such is life. can't WAIT to see the reveal! LOVE!
I love this project! I choose that same fabric to use in my daughter's room! I loooove the texture of it! Great Job!
Just like everyone else- so curious about the wire baskets, fabric choices, mirror, etc. Swooning over the style. Just beautiful!
Just like everyone else- wondering where did you get the wire baskets, the fabric, (even the white one under the grey circles), the mirror, etc. Swooning over the style. Just beautiful!
my husband will surely want to strangle me, but i am wanting to do this to our awkward entryway closet now. you, miss, are a trouble-maker!! 😉 it really is amazing..
I LOVE it! I need to know the color of gray you used in the closet! Do you mind sharing? If you mentioned it, I think I missed it. (reading with kids doesn't always work…haha)
I have started this project, but I have run into a bump in the road. I have the grid made out for the bench and screwed in the wall but the front part will fall down if someone sits on it. How do I get the front part to stay up?
Where can I get a picture of your finished project. I want to show my husband?
The Lady with an idea.

Awesome. such a smarter use of space. I love it, but I also really love that wallpaper that you didn't end up using. Where can I find some?
This is beautiful! I'm hoping you can answer a question. I am trying to duplicate the top molding. You say it consists of only three pieces1. Flat molding turned (found that) 2. Wide board (found) 3. Brick molding. We can not find brick molding that looks like this. The brick molding we find is the same as you used in your board and batten for your bathroom. Can you tell me where you found this other brick molding?
Would that "small piece of trim turned on its side" be "lattice" molding? I love the way the molding looks. When we moved into our house-a Levitt cape so already I'm behind the 8 ball- there were ugly clamshell moldings every where and flush luan doors (except for 1 original wood 2 panel which we modeled all the other doors after). We changed it to colonial casing but I want something different than the Pro-pack moldings that you see in every other house and this is what I am looking for and I am trying to replicate it.
Is the small molding called Lattice molding? HD has it in 3 widths and it looks to be the same.
Hi Shelley! Your nook looks fabulous! I stumbled upon your blog on Pinterest, of course! Could you tell me the hight of the bottom AND top shelf please? I plan on transforming a closet in our laundry room to give it more of a mudroom look and function, and yours is exactly what I imagined! Thanks!
