So, if you remember a few weeks back, we decided to give the laundry room a facelift. (See the original post here!! I wanted to get it done in a day or 2, but life happens (and laundry gets piled to the moon) and so although it took a bit longer than I’d hoped, I’m happy with the results!
Let me remind you of the “before” shot:
And take a look at the “after”:
OK! So here’s what we did:
- we went to Lowe’s home improvement to buy some unfinished cabinets, a metal hanging rod, some peel & stick backsplash tile & a hook rack
- after installing the cabinets & the rod, I painted the cabinets (Valspar Woodlawn Snow) & hung the backsplash, and only had to make a few cuts around the outlets. This was a pretty painless job, but the most time consuming. (I used 32 squares.)
- finished the project by painting the rest of the room (Olympic Stormy Weather) & then hung the hooks.
I will add a cute little “laundry” sign or something, as well as our family calendar & some hangers, but I am excited about the transformation! And all for about $350. Not too shabby.
