Laundry Room

After reading this post from {Remodelaholic.com} I was inspired to re-do my laundry room. The Rodden Family made over their laundry room and I thought it looked great. I never thought to organize and paint it before seeing this post. So thanks for the idea! Love it!

After: (yay!)

Before: (hot mess)


Took down the old shelves and painted it a light blue/gray...

Thank goodness my husband is handy and can put up this shelving (it came white which saved us a step)...


Scrapbook paper I turned into a stencil - The Rodden Family used wrapping paper, which I might go back and try. It's the holiday's y'all and I'm tired... one thing at a time!

The after - very subtle...
The mess my paper stencil made...


The hard work and mess on my hands! Don't wear your wedding rings while painting! I'm a dummy! (and yes those are my real nails, they do grow ridiculously fast)

YAY! I love that I can have Granny's silver out to see and the other girly things my husband doesn't want out!


Linky Parties! Check them out! :)

  27. It looks very pretty! Anything to make the chore of laundry nicer- I hate laundry! We bought a new washer/dryer and I was thrilled for about a week, then it went back to being a chore. I'd love to make my laundry room bright and organized like this one day. (I'm following you now and looking forward to reading more- visited from Debbies : )

  33. Love your laundry room makeover. I wish I could be inspired to make mine over. Yours looks fantastic.

  34. That is too pretty to be a laundry room. I love it. My teeny, tiny laundry room could use a lot of help. I have front loaders and they are so big, they take up the entire space. I can barely reach into the cabinets above them. This gives me a couple ideas to make a couple changes. Great job.

  35. Beautiful transformation. It is the perfect place to display your pretty silver.

    Thanks for linking up to the Roomspiration party.
