Hello friends! Welcome back in 2012. Between my kiddos and my husband being home, there wasn't much priority on blogging, but I'm back and ready to share the laundry room before and after pictures.
The cabinets were painted in Gunmetal 1602 by BM. I am crazy for this color.
Can't get enough.
This little makeover started with the ugly fluorescent light that needed to be changed.
But when my hubby went to install the new light the wiring was a mess and there was a huge hole of crumbling drywall. :-( Cue the electrician and drywall guy. Not what you want to pay for in the midst of present buying. BUT, not it's done correctly and we don't have to worry.
Ta Da! Hole patched.
New light. Everyone needs a little fancy in their life.
I move my framed watercolor of Charlevoix, MI to the coat area. I kept it slightly too high to leave room for an imaginary galvanized steal container I'm envisioning for the top of the shelf. Know of any good Etsy stores for that? I also bought the basket from Target that I've wanted for over a year now. It's perfect to hold all our winter gear. Long term we will build some sort of locker area/bench on this wall, but for now it works.
Now for the full before and after shots. As always, I wish you could see the room in person because it looks so much better in person.
I'd still like to add a woven shade to the door window, and a fun, framed print on the
wall to the right of the door. I'll keep you posted.
Here is the view with the light on. I like the shadows!
Thank you for checking out my laundry room makeover! Let me tell you...I'm going to do a lot more laundry in 2012 just because I actually enjoy being in the room.
Happy New Year!
