Ikea mudroom hack: Pax closets, ekby shelf and corbels, gerton desk top, kallax bench seat, and pjas baskets. I wonder if this will fit in the hallway or if it would take away from the entrance? Or in the spare room?
Change the color but like the idea of painted. Better Homes and Gardens - Loyal Blue on built-ins (maybe for furniture instead of accent wall?), Copen Blue on other walls to complement, White trim, Gray Matters on floor (for furniture possibly)
