One of the easiest and most rewarding room makeovers is a laundry room! Doing laundry is a never ending chore that requires a lot of time spent in your laundry room. Does it NEED to look nice? Not at all! But it makes the tedium that is doing laundry a little less dull :)
When we moved into our house, our laundry room was a very typical basic set up. Washer, dryer, cabinet and shelves, all in a very boring white color.
Before we could start, we had to pull EVERYTHING out! Paul enlisted the help of his best friend Drew and they got to work taking down the shelves and cabinet. Finally, we pulled out the appliances.
Once that was done, the first thing needed was some color! We picked out a green paint that was full of pizzaz and gave it a couple of coats. Already, the room seemed happier :)
Next, I applied a wall decal that I ordered from Etsy. I am a really big fan of wall decals! As with anything, it is definitely possible to go overboard with them, but this seemed like a perfect place for one. We centered it in the room and attached it to the wall.
Then everything had to go back. Paul and Drew got back to work putting the shelves and cabinet back up on the walls. We dragged the appliances back in and then we were almost done.
One of my favorite things about it was that it had several levels of wire racks above the washer and dryer. To spruce up the look of storage, I decided we needed baskets! The three largest baskets I actually re-purposed from another area of our home. Then, I went to Joann's Fabric and bought several smaller baskets. I also got a few cute patterned photo boxes to set on top of the cabinet.
I am SO happy with how this room makeover turned out. It was fast, inexpensive and made a HUGE difference! And let me tell you, laundry seems a little less dull when you are working in a room that is so bright and happy! Does your laundry room make you happy?
See you soon!
