Yay! Reveal day is here! The extended 8-week timeline of the challenge this round has made this last few weeks a breeze for me. When I did my bedroom in the fall, I was stressed and scrambling. This round, I was done a week ago! I have no clue how this happened. I am a huge procrastinator. I guess I’ll take it though!
I had two pain points in the laundry room before. The first being that it offered absolutely no storage. In a home that only has one non-bedroom closet, I felt like I could definitely utilize this remodel to provide more storage solutions. The other pain point was just that it was a little boring. I added the patterned tile several years ago and the door was already a fun color, but the room still felt a little… boring and blank.
The board and batten is perfect along this long wall. This room is super narrow – it’s basically just a walkway with a nook for the machines – so a feature wall works great. It adds interest without taking up any space.
And of course since I wanted more space, I added some stock cabinets from Home Depot that I painted with my nifty paint sprayer. I couldn’t find a linen cabinet that I liked, so I figured why not build one! This is what happened and I’ve gotta say, it has my heart.
The countertops and washer/dryer ledge are made from plywood, as are the shelves. I like that the shelves provide an opportunity for a little happy moment in an otherwise very functional room.
And of course I needed somewhere to hand clothes that can’t be machine dried, so this rod (left over from my closet project) worked wonderfully.
The hardware I chose is simple and I think it adds just the right amount of elegance.
This light fixture pick was a last minute change – I had planned to do a basket light, but I fell in love with this guy’s shape played off the floor tile.
The hexagon backsplash was the final touch and holy cow did it pull the room together! I used peel and stick tiles (I’ll write up a tutorial soon) and while they definitely aren’t perfect, they sure are quick and easy! And they still look bomb.
I wonder if you noticed… the door is a different color! I changed it ever so slightly. I actually ended up mixing my own color by using Benjamin Moore Windy Skies and adding a touch of my cabinet color (Benjamin Moore Providence Blue) until it was just the right light blue to play off the cabinet color beautifully.
I hope you’ve enjoyed following along the process of redoing this laundry room! It has been so much fun and what used to be a very boring room now totally rocks! Don’t forget to head over to the One Room Challenge page to see all the other stunning reveal posts 🙂
