Laundry Room Inspiration

When we moved into our house in the fall of 2012, none of the walls were painted. The builder wanted to charge a few thousand dollars to paint the interior walls and ceilings. Rob & I were convinced it would be no big deal to do the painting ourselves. We might have underestimated the amount of work that was ahead of us. More than a year later, we still have a few rooms left to paint.

Originally a makeover for the laundry room was pretty low on our home project to-do list. It wasn’t until Rob installed the garage door opener a few weeks ago that it got bumped way up that list. We have to walk through the laundry room to get to the garage and now every morning I walk through that drab, vanilla colored room and think “this room needs color!”

This should be a quick and easy makeover. The room is small and it’s a utilitarian space so no tchotchkes allowed. Instead I’ll focus on adding color to the room through paint and framed art. To keep the room neat and tidy, I plan to add storage bins and hang cabinets. I’ve put together a board that includes the inspiration photos, colors, art and DIY projects that I’ll use to bring the room together.

    Does that mean Rob won’t be doing laundry in the “Lady like Laundry Room?” He He, just kidding. Really cute.

      Lol Dee! You know Robbie, he’s a good sport about it. The rest of the house is pretty masculine, so I had to go girly in the laundry room! #christina

    Those glass jars might add something nice to my laundry area in the garage….

      Let me know if you want me to make you a couple. I just got a Silhouette machine – so I can cut out vinyl letters now! #christina
