Turning Lemons Into Lemonade

We had some ceiling damage by our back door due to a leaky roof. Once that was fixed we were left wondering how to fix the ceiling.

My husband didn't want to go through the work of skimming new plaster and repainting so I mentioned covering it with some kind of paneling.

My husband found this great bamboo paneling online and ordered 3 panels right away.

Here is the view of the back door entrance from the kitchen.

And here is our new, AWESOME ceiling!

I love the look of it with the white trim framing it.

My plan now is to add some coat hooks and shoe storage on this left wall.

Here are some of my favorite mudrooms:

  2. What a clever idea with the bambo panels! Also, I love your door.


  3. Where did you order the bamboo from?
