Laundry Room Reveal
Like I said before, this room is REALLY small. It’s 59″ wide and 55″ deep. It’s off a small hallway that leads from our kitchen to the living room, and is closed off with a set of double doors. Right across the hallway from the laundry room is the pantry closet.
Here’s what our laundry room looked like before our renovation. Pretty blah. Boring builders paint, one lonely shelf and flooring from the 90’s. (Which is when we had the house built!)
During our whole house renovation, I shared a post about the laundry room after I painted it. I wasn’t happy with the color then, and was thinking about changing it. It kind of grew on me though, and now I love the green color on the walls. It’s Pittsburgh Paints Fern Glow. Here’s a picture of what the laundry room looked like during the renovation.
You’ll also notice that the on wall above the washer and dryer we added cabinets. You can learn more in my organizing the laundry room post. They were the most expensive thing that we did to the laundry room, even though we opted for very inexpensive cabinets. Well worth it for the added storage space!
Here’s what the laundry room looks like now.
I filled in the space above the washer and dryer with a shelf that I found at our local Habitat For Humanities store.
It has a nice carved front and side edges. It just needed a couple of coats of white paint.
It came with brackets, but I took them off and used L brackets to support the shelf. The shelf is velcroed to the L brackets so that we can easily remove it if we need to.
I love how the shelf hides the ugly outlets.
I made the sign – The Laundry Room Loads Of Fun sign. You can find the decal here. (Affiliate link.) It was very easy to do.
Update – I have written a post about how to make this sign – it’s a step-by-step tutorial that explains how to use vinyl letters to make a sign.
It was hard to get good pictures of this room because it is so small. So, it’s hard to tell in the front view of the room, but I added a picture to each side wall of my grand kids. They make me smile whenever I open the laundry room doors!
We also changed out the flooring to vinyl floor tiles. I decided not to continue the hardwood floors into the laundry room, so we used vinyl floor tiles that complement the wood floors. They’re easy to clean, and I don’t have to worry as much about water damage if the washing machine leaks.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this reveal of our renovated laundry room!
