How a small and dark laundry room was transformed in two days using materials I already had on hand to create a beautiful and elegant space.
If you had four short weeks or maybe just a weekend, leftover paint and wallpaper, what room would you refresh?
DIY Laundry Room Makeover Reveal
Welcome to the New Year, New Room Refresh Challenge hosted by Casa Watkins Living, where eight bloggers are updating a room in a month. It is the reveal day and I can’t wait to show you how I gave a small-sad laundry room an elegant French-inspired refresh using things I already had.
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?
Here was our laundry room at the beginning of the year.
Not bad. Just nothing special about it. I decided to spend as little money as possible and only use leftover materials I had from other room makeovers to refresh the space.
Easy Laundry Room DIYS
Here is what I accomplished for the challenge. And honestly, I only worked on it for two days out of the month we had.
- Laundry room plans and ideas on a budget
- DIY shelf for behind a top load washer and dryer
- Wallpaper accent wall and paint
And then something astonishing happened. Two days ago, my husband offered to make a wood cover for the wire shelving that fits between the washer and dryer. Y’all, he hasn’t lifted a finger to help me with a room makeover for almost eight years! And I haven’t asked. It’s an agreement we had because he was always busy as an active duty marine and gone often on deployments. But now he has extra time and I think I could get used to it!
Our laundry room looks so much bigger and brighter now! The leftover Milton and King wallpaper I used made such a difference and since it was just two small sections, the installation was a breeze.
As I mentioned last week, I mixed a sample color of blue with the same white on the walls to get the cabinet color. I had leftover pulls for the cabinets and storage cart.
One of my friends on Instagram opened a beautiful print shop and sent me a few of my favorite digital files. I printed them at Walgreens and they look so gorgeous in this space! All three art pieces are from Jefferson Home Print Shop.
I also added a couple of special pieces like a vintage Asian basket and Waterford crystal from a dear friend and a gold box that was my grandmothers.
I’m still waiting for a rug to arrive that I was able to purchase with a gift card. So our foyer rug from Mohawk Home is in the space right now.
The room turned out so lovely! It feels fancy and is much more fun to do laundry now.
