Easter/Spring Decor...

Happy Easter!
A few days late!
It's been a rough month, everyone took a turn getting sick! 
Luckily, they were all feeling good for Easter.
I love how bright and cheerful Spring decor makes our house feel! 
Today I'm sharing our Spring/Easter decor.
BEWARE: There are a lot of bunnies!
I know they aren't what Easter is all about, but they sure make our house look cute!
Our Entryway...
  Living Room...
I added a spring wreath to my shelf...
Cute bunny with carrots...
 Family Room...
I placed a bunny for each of my kids in front of a grass container...
 Our Kitchen...
I found these cute bunny clips at Target and just hung them with twine to make a garland.
 Not too bad for a dollar!
Here is our island...
 I found this adorable bunny years ago at TJ Maxx.  
I also added some colorful eggs to the tray.
I actually borrowed these flowers from my daughter's room... You can see her room HERE.
 They are so bright and springy!
It's been snowing here in Utah the last few days!   
When I look out the window, it feels a little more like Christmas!  
Our weather changes so quickly, by tomorrow it will probably be sunny and warm again.

Inspiring Mudrooms and a {REVEAL}

Our "mudroom" is pretty small and it's also our laundry room.
It is located just off the garage, so it is a dumping ground for everything.
For years, I've had this hall tree and it worked great to hang backpacks and hold shoes...
With six of us in our family, it didn't hold enough.
There were always extra coats and shoes all over the place.  For a while, I dreamed of adding on to the room to create a space like the ones on my Pinterest Board.  

Here are of few of my favorites...

It just wasn't in the budget to break out the wall an add on.
So, I was pondering some ways we could add enough lockers for each of us in such a small space.
I FINALLY figured it out!
 The room is small, but it does have high ceilings.
 I decided to maximize the space and found that the Ikea Pax System would work.
  We purchased a corner one and added another single Pax wardrobe to each side.

Then we added one more single Pax to the other side of the washing machine.

It worked!
EVERYONE in our family now has a locker... and there is also another cupboard for cleaning supplies!
My favorite part...
There are doors to hide all of the junk!
We chose the Bergsbo doors from Ikea.
We put one shelf to divide each cupboard into two sections.
 I added a basket for shoes and we put hooks on each side.
There is a hook for a backpack and one for a coat.
My husband added a block of wood and then drilled the hooks. Now it can hold the heavier backpacks without damaging the cabinet.
 It's still a small room, but we were able to maximize the space to work for us.
We painted the walls Sherwin Williams "Sea Salt".  It's hard to get a good picture, but It really brightened the room!
I'm always amazed at how paint can completely transform a room.
I still can't believe we figured out a way for each of us to have a locker in such a small space!
