Or­di­nary laun­dry room cab­i­nets get a game-chang­ing facelift. Now, they’re a where a fam­ily can stow coats and sit to tie shoes. A set of cab­i­nets in Stephanie Ab­bott’s Hous­ton-area home was in the right spot for a mud­room—at the door to the garage. But with two kids un­der the age of 5, she needed a bet­ter setup for her fam­ily’s grab-and-go rou­tine. “At first I was look­ing at rip­ping out the ex­ist­ing cab­i­nets to build a mud­room from scratch,” Stephanie says. “Then I re­al­ized those cab­i­nets were the per­fect start­ing point.” She re­moved the doors, draw­ers, and coun­ter­top, then spent three days mod­i­fy­ing the cab­i­net frames and build­ing wooden bins.

“I knew this up­date would have a big im­pact on our daily lives,” Stephanie says. “Hav­ing a place to sit down and to store shoes makes life eas­ier.”
