Today I wanted to share with you some before and after photos of my recently updated laundry room!
Here’s a before photo of the other side:
I could NOT be happier! (And I couldn’t have done it without the help of my dad, who listens to me explain my ideas, and then, with much talent and skill, makes it a reality. Thank you, dad!)
Here’s the scoop on everything we did…
The first thing I wanted to do was paint the room. Decisions, decisions. I knew I wanted a beadboard wall, so I leaned the board against the wall with paint samples around it to see what I wanted. We sampled SW Believable Buff, SW Kilem Beige, MS Spun Sugar, MS Forest Lichen, Valspar Frappe, MS Toasted Marshmallow and a few others.
The winner? Martha Stewart’s Toasted Marshmallow (color matched using Behr paint). It’s the one to the right of the blue swatch.
Here’s the biggest wall in the room, freshly painted. LOVE this color. (And, the following photo a pretty good representation of the new paint color. Toasted marshmallow is a gorgeous neutral khaki color. The wall color used to be the same as the ceiling, so you can see the difference best in this photo, too.)
I found the wall art at Hobby Lobby.
The other side of the room got a major overhaul with new cabinets. (Custom cabinets with beadboard fronts that my dad made!)
Here they are completed. I went with dark hardware and hinges to match the hooks on the other side of the room.
(p.s. I LOVE the new small shelf over the washer/dryer which keeps everyday items off the tops off of them!)
A few other small details to finish off the space like my new recyclable trash bag keeper that I made:
Now my new bag keeper hangs on the wall and out of the way, but easily accessible, as we seem to grab these a lot:
I spend a LOT of time in this room, and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
