Built-Ins Idea Book
This image is included in the recently published “All New Built-Ins Idea Book” edited by Joanne Kellar Bouknight and published by Taunton Press. The Shaker inspired built-in provides storage for coats, hats, mittens and boots in a mudroom addition. The finish on the custom made cabinetry is old fashioned milk paint on pine. The color, Buttermilk, picks up the yellow tones of the blue stone floor while the cherry knobs, treads and railing provide contrast. In another mud room below, Shaker style cherry pegs contrast with Bayberry milk paint on salvaged cedar paneling. The pine on the ceiling has a pickled finish.
