If you have been wondering how to refresh your laundry room?! You have come to the right place! I had so much fun sharing the progress with everyone on Instagram this morning. You can catch the highlight here.
We have been in our home for 4.5 years and one of the first things I did after I gave birth to Liam was take down anything in our home that was an eye sore. The cabinets in our laundry room was one! The other thing that I did, was take out the door that opened into the laundry room. (Or should we call it a hallway with a washer and dryer.) This “room” leads to the garage and the door to the garage also opened inward. SUPER fun to try and get into the house with a baby on your hip, diaper bag and a bag of groceries.
I know you are dying to see that before.. so here it is!
The previous owners painted the cupboard mint green, while leaving the walls and floor tan. Not only were these cupboards horrific, the average person could not reach anything inside of them without a step latter. Plus being a minimalist, there wasn’t much in there anyway!
Let’s Refresh my Laundry Room!
Such a transformation painted with Swiss Coffee and we said sayonara to that cupboard.
This is what our Laundry Room looked like for 3 years. We hang a lot of our clothes (use to cloth diaper) so having a portable drying rack and an additional drying rack were both essential. Our laundry room worked for us, it was great, it was functional, easy to keep clean. But after being home so much in 2020, I decided I want to do something FUN! We enjoyed using the removable wall paper so much for Blake’s room, that I was dying to find another space in the house to design.
I truly can not get enough of this peel and stick wall paper from Rocky Mountain Decals. If you watched my stories on Instagram you saw how easy it was to instal! I did 365 degrees of wall paper and IT. IS. SEAMLESS.
The Laundry Room Refresh Details:
On the three walls around the washer and dryer, I used 6 feet of wall paper, and painted the bottom portion. Partly to save $$$ but also time! I ended up painting the base boards too and it really made for a dramatic touch. This is the barn door I lived without for three years, it is from Costco for about $280 I have seen in for two years in a row now in their wear house only during spring and early summer.
This wooden wall mount from Amazon is less than $60, I used a hard wax to stain it! I used the same hard wax when I made these shelves. These white baskets are from Ikea, there are also some similar ones from target, here.
I highly, HIGHLY, recommend that you refresh you laundry room and I highly, HIGHLY recommend that you incorporate Rocky Mountain Decals, they have SOOO many beautifully designed decals and wall paper!
