I’m so excited to be joining this round of the One Room Challenge! Basically you have six weeks to complete one room makeover – start to finish. We’ll link up our progress every Thursday until the final reveal on May 8th. You can read all of the details here. And don’t forget to stop by the link party to see all of the other bloggers participating!
My laundry room is perfect for this challenge. It’s the only room in the house that hasn’t been painted yet. Actually, I haven’t done anything to the room except add a washer and dryer…and make a mess!
As with my last couple room makeovers, I put together a mood board to help myself focus on what I want the completed laundry room to look like. Source list at bottom of post.
The first big project is going to be repairing the drywall. The previous owners cut a dog/cat door opening between the laundry room and garage and we’ve never fully repaired it. My boyfriend hung a new piece of drywall, but Ringo chewed through it as a puppy and we never fixed/finished patching the wall.
Of course I’m planning to paint - I’m thinking a nice light blue color for the walls and fresh white on the trim. I’d like to replace the shelf with cabinets, but we’ll see…I also want to build a countertop across the top of the washer and dryer. The rest of the projects on my to-do are relatively small, so I think this is definitely doable!
Let’s take a look at the to-do list:
Paint Trim and Door
Add Pulls to Cabinets
Install New Light Fixture
Update Light Switches to White
Add Wood Countertop
Install Ironing Board Hanger
Add Accessories/Final Touches
Light Fixture – Cabinets – Laundry or Naked Vinyl – Paint Color – Cabinet Knobs – Safety Pin Art – Laundry Cart
