The ugliest room in my home is my laundry room – EASILY. Which is funny, because I spend A LOT of time there.
Between the oogly mint green walls to the short, dated (AND BEIGE) toilet, my laundry room needs lots of work. I just finished doing an amazing stencil project on my entryway walls (see a peek below), then finished the kitchen hallway, so man… I’m tired. But, what better way to be motivated to start (and finish) a project, than by joining in on the One Room Challenge.
The One Room Challenge is a six-week series started and hosted by Linda of Calling it Home, where we transform a room from start to finish and reveal it at the end. Linda invites 20 participants as featured designers to post updates on Wednesdays, but anyone, anywhere, can join in as a guest participant and post their updates on Thursdays. I’ll be a guest participant, so make sure you jump back over here on those days! Plus, in additional to the weekly blog posts, I’ll also be doing a weekly vlog on the laundry room project, sharing behind-the-scenes updates while I’m working on the it.
You’ll see this week’s video below, but make sure you subscribe to my channel.
So… onto the laundry room.
Here’s what it looks like right now…
There’s a lot to do. Ugh! I wanna transform this room from a “utility room with a toilet” to a “luxe bathroom with laundry”. The plan is for the laundry room / bathroom to be glam, eclectic, and layered with accessories and art that reflect my collected style. I’m not sure exactly what paint color I wanna use on the ceiling, but I’m thinking either chartreuse, a deep pink, blue, or black. You’ll see some classic elements, like in the new vanity, some modern elements and also some vintage elements, as I plan to hit the thrift store for some frames for my art prints. I also need to figure out what I wanna do for organizing my cleaning supplies and laundry detergent. I’ll let you know what I decide next week.
Since this is both a laundry room AND a bathroom, I want it to be cute AND cozy, so expect to see little luxurious for guests to enjoy it here, as well.
Here’s my huge task list:
- Scrape the ceiling
- Paint the ceiling a fun color
- Replace chandelier
- Install gray, porcelain floors
- Remove cabinet
- Remove shelf
- Remove utility sink and replace with a bathroom vanity
- Install new mirror
- Do stencil project on walls
- Install a storage system on wall next to washer/dryer
As mentioned in the task list, I’m doing a stencil project on the walls. It’ll be bold and fun. I’ll share more on that next week, but check out the stencil project I did in my entryway:
So good, right? I’ll reveal the entire space (it’s small), next week. As soon as I finally paint the front door. LOL.
So, come back next week to see the exact design I’m going with in my laundry room/bathroom. I’ll also get the new floors installed and scrape the ceiling.
It’s bad, I know, but I’m excited! What would you do in this laundry room/bathroom? Let me know in the comments below!
Till next time,
