I’m definitely not done with the laundry room yet but I’ve made some progress and it could still be a few weeks until I finish up so I wanted to post some updates.
Here are some lovely before shots of the laundry room at its worst. There was a weird laundry room sign outlined in white paint and an ugly shelf that was too tall even for Danny (and we know he doesn’t spend any time in here). It’s a pretty small room, but I’m glad to have it! The mini blinds were dirty and gross and the walls were all patchy and plain. Now here it is after some paint and a few updates! I painted the walls and I LOVE the color. The blue/gray is gorgeous and I might have to use it somewhere else now too! Even Dan likes it and he’s not a fan of blue.
I took down the weird vinyl and added my own cute saying I found online.
I also took down the huge shelf and patched and cleaned up the walls. I was just going to do some sort of tie up curtain, but I found these amazing grasscloth (I think?) roman shades on sale at Lowes. Holy smokes I am so happy about them. This one was regularly $56 and I got it for $6.25! I’m not kidding! I about died with joy. Dan hung them for me and I love them! The texture is awesome and I loved throwing away the gross mini blinds. Since they were pretty long for the window, I put some hooks on the top inside of the window and made some loops and glued them on the inside of the shades so I can hook them up when I want the window open more. It’s hard to explain but because the shades were extra long, they didn’t pull open all the way. But this works great for me! Now I still need to get some unfinished double oak cabinets from Lowes and paint them white and put beadboard wall paper on the doors kinda like this: I’ll probably paint the inside of the cabinets a lighter shade of the blue wall color just because I like it. :) The double cabinets will go above the washer here:
Kinda like this:
Then I just need to get some organization for an ironing board and brooms/mops. We’re going to Disneyland next week (jealous anyone?) so it will probably be a few weeks until it’s totally finished. But I still love it like this for now!
