Can we just take a minute and remember the nastiness before?
Dark cabinets, dark doors, to-do projects piled everywhere, a floor that needed to be cleaned:
Remember this steal of a basket from the Hob Lob clearance? I use it for odd socks. And of course, you remember the lamp from a yardsale with some fabric.
The green balls were from a yard sale and I was going to use them for Christmas, but why not in the laundry room? The tin holding them is the Southern Living one I found at a yard sale as well...
I used the beadboard wallpaper on my cabinets! Love, love them. My husband kept going back in and saying, wow, they look so good! I'll do another post on how I did them, but Rhoda was my inspiration for these, and the paint color on the walls, which is Behr Grasscloth. Thank you, Rhoda! The new knobs are from Hob Lob, 50% off. ($3 each)
I used an old fashioned candy container from a yard sale ($2) and filled it with color safe bleach powder I use to soak stained clothes in. Since the shelves are on wheels, I hot glued it to the top to stay put.
I painted the door black and used the reverse side of the comforter for a new-sew window treatment. Just hung it up with a few upholstery tacks ala Nester style, and that was it:
And you've seen the little work area across from the washer/dryer:
Thanks for coming in and thank you for choosing the green for me!
I really love it, and I figure if you can't have fun in the laundry room with paint, where in the world can you?? :)
P.S. If you have any questions, ask in the comments and I'll try to answer them in a follow up post~
