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!
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
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 √
And of course, I added a few accessories!
- New Lighting √
A $10 vintage chandelier added a little elegance to the space.
Place to feed pets √
And who can forget the pets who use this room the most.
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 √
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?
