Laundry Room Redo

We’ve been in our home for just under one year and we’ve finally decided to get going on some project I’ve been wanting to do! Believe it or not, my faux fireplace project is still on the boards {wood is all cut, has been for months, and is just sitting in our garage waiting for assembly! I’ve just been dragging my feet on the last steps to complete that project}. I decided to focus on our sad laundry room in the meantime. I know it doesn’t seem like the most obvious room to start with, but it is the smallest, so I thought I would be able to tackle it fairly quickly.

It all started with an inspiration image. I found this gorgeous laundry room while perusing Pinterest one day, and just fell in love. This was the push I needed to get into gear and get started.

After finding my inspiration image, I set to work to put together a Laundry Room Design Inspiration Board to get the feel I was looking for in the room. The color scheme will be mint, black, and cream. I’m eventually hoping to remove the wire shelf and install some cream cabinets similar to inspiration image. In addition, I have my sights set on doing a DIY shiplap board wall opposite the machines, also similar to the inspiration image, but both the shiplap wall and the cabinets probably won’t happen until the summer rolls around and I have a bit more time on my hands. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to see how this all comes together!

Last week, hubby and I went to Home Depot… I swear, we’ve been here or Lowes almost every weekend since we’ve moved! Before we moved into our home, I think we went maybe once or twice… the entire time we’ve been together! We purchased the paint that I’ve had taped up to the wall for what seems like forever. We decided upon Behr Venetian Pearl, which is a gorgeous mint hue. Obviously, not like the inspiration image, but I thought, if I’m going to go through the trouble to paint, I want it to be different enough from our current creamy yellow builder-grade interior paint that can be found throughout our house to make it worth my while. I set to work and phase 1 of my Laundry Room redo project is complete! The color is gorgeous, a lot brighter than I had anticipated, but I’m loving it {And bonus! It matches my fave mini Coach purse perfectly! It’s apparent after this happy accident that I definitely have a mild obsession with this color}!

I sadly didn’t get a “before” picture, but nothing has changed except the color, so it’s not too big of a deal in retrospect. So, that’s about it for now! I’ll keep you posted as this room takes shape over the next few months!
