One Room Challenge Laundry Room – Week Six Reveal!

This is a sponsored post


We are finally there, Week Six of the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home , and it’s time for the big reveal! For the last six weeks I have been working ard to complete a full makeover of our laundry room for the One Room Challenge. Every Wednesday for the past five weeks I have been sharing my progress and products but today I’m I’m finally ready to share the finished room. I won’t be the only one sharing,  twenty featured bloggers and over two hundred guest participant will be linking their own room transformations. Lots of inspiration!


But before we get to the details I want to give a big thanks to my One Room Challenge Sponsors who helped make this room possible!

Home Decorators Collection //D. Lawless Hardware // Wagner Spray Tech // Aspect Peel and Stick tiles


Now let’s  remember what the room looked like before, not awful but not at all inspiring.


These were my goals for this makeover:

  • Install countertop over washer dryer
  • Decorative backslash
  • New Paint
  • New Lighting
  • Better use of pantry, possibly mudroom bench
  • Place to feed pets
  • Do something on the floor to cover or replace
  • Do something to make the array of doors more interesting.
  • Make it Fun!

My first thought for this room was to make it colorful and fun because if I’m going to have to do laundry I might as well enjoy being in there.


My two big inspirations were this  removable wallpaper  by Joan Mclemore on Spoonflower


And this Pizzazz Rug from Home Decorators Collection.


So let’s see how I did…

  • New Paint √

That was an easy one. I decided to match the paint in the adjoining bathroom which is a shade or two darker than the paint I used in the kitchen.


  • Better use of pantry, possibly mudroom bench √

This involved some creative construction and some fun accessories.  I can’t get over how fabulous the wallpaper looks in this small space.


but this mud bench just goes to show you a little goes a long way, especially with my  D. Lawless Hardware.


  • Do something to make the array of doors more interesting. √

Nothing a little paint and decorative masking tape can’t handle.


  • Counter top over washer dryer √

Solid core veneered doors made easy work of this project.


  • Decorative Backsplash √

This was such an easy project using Aspect honeycomb peel and stick tiles and a little spray paint.



And of course, I added a few accessories!


  • New Lighting √

A $10 vintage chandelier added a little elegance to the space.

And who can forget the pets who use this room the most.


My vintage radio tuned “cat house” got a new look with the help of my Wagner Spray Tech paint sprayer.


and a simple modification to my mud bench has everyone a designated place to eat. Of course, the one that finishes last gets a lot of attention…



  • Do something on the floor to cover or replace √

I thought about replacing the floor but once I laid down my Pizzazz Rug from Home Decorators Collection I didn’t hate the old floor nearly as much.


Ozzie seems to approve too and he has very discerning taste.


  • Make it Fun! √

I think I got that covered with lots of color, the addition of Cricket by LeighViner, and plenty of quirky vintage finds like my genie lamp and vintage ceramic.

I’d say this makeover was a success and hopefully it will inspire the WHOLE family to do laundry. A girl can hope right?

  38. BOY oh boy did you make it fun, Maggie! Only you could bring so much joy to a laundry room. Love what you did with the closet bench space so much, and all of the pet projects (and pets!!) really brought a smile to my face. I had to turn the monitor away from Jellybeans before she started asking why she doesn’t get to eat inside a radio, too!

I especially love that planter / bowl sitting on the vintage radio – is that thrifted, too? Love it, Maggie!!
