Our Laundry Room Makeover



I am excited to show you our newly updated laundry room! I am especially excited about the new tile floor from our sponsor, Joss and Main. I have been a huge fan of this tile for a while now but was a little nervous to pull the trigger, but now am so glad that I did. I love the impact it has in here and love walking by this room every day (it would be a bit of a stretch to say I love doing laundry - ha!)
I have looked through my before shots over and over and can't find any of the laundry room. I was sure I took at least one so if I finally find it I'll add it to this post. Basically it was the original linoleum floors that once were white but had faded to kind of a creamy brown color, the original dark trim and brownish beige walls. The first thing we did was have the old floor ripped out and the new tile installed and the cabinets moved higher up on the wall (they were very oddly placed quite low). After that I got to work painting. I painted the walls, trim, windows and cabinets. Then we had the counter built and I stained and painted it (all paint and stain color info can be found in the source list).

Once that was all done it was time for the fun part - adding in the finishing touches. I hung some pictures that we had used on our gallery wall in our last house and some baskets and jars we also already had. And then I added a shade from Lowe's to the window to add a little warmth.

There's an older sink over on this side. I love having a sink in here! I'd like to eventually update it with a newer one but for now it's just nice having a sink in our laundry room (especially for soaking flowers and seeded eucalyptus when I get home from Trader Joe's - ha!) ! We hung our ironing board above it so it's nice and easy to grab (the iron is in the cabinets) and then hung a couple more pictures from our old gallery wall.


You can see out into the hallway where we added some headboard wallpaper and hung one of our signs.

















I still need to change out the light fixture in here and the hallway so will share some more pictures once I do that (the ones I am planning on ordering are on back order) but it's nice to have a space feel almost finished!
