As you are aware, my house, adorned with its brass doorknobs and other various demon fixtures of the 90's, was lacking any sense of style. One of the most depressing rooms to me was always the laundry room. I am lucky enough to have a
tiny laundry room, period. I am pretty darn lucky to have a laundry room on the first floor, which is where our master bedroom is located. Last but not least, I am SUPER lucky to have a laundry room located in such a place that visitors could mistake it as the powder room. NOT.
1. less white
2. less oak
3. less space above cabinets
4. less white
4. less white
You get the picture : )
So...after visiting the miniature Lowe's that I
stack on the basement steps happily organized in the basement, I settled on the appropriate paint colors and the taping/measuring torture fun started. There's something you should know about me, I'm a closet "eyeballer." Yes, it's a very technical term. I was diagnosed at a young age. Luckily, it's treatable. Medication ranges from liquid nails to paintable latex caulk. Thank God there is a cure! Seriously, thank you, Jesus. Luckily, it usually works out in my favor...tee hee. Love you, Justin.
So once I got started
eyeballing meticulously measuring the stripes, it was easy peasy!
(notice the old parquet in the foyer/hallway - more to come on that soon)
FOUR! (DISCLAIMER: I have yet to finish the fourth and final stripe. I know, I'm horrible. I'm the worst kind of horrible, I'm an eyeballin' project hopper. Gah.
After my stripes were
unfinished finished, I glanced at my list and saw that I mentioned something about less oak....Hm, I can't remember why I would write such a thing like that. Then it hit me...it hit me hard.
And the big picture...complete with tiffany blue jar to hold
love notes from your husband reminding you why you wash his underwear dog biscuits.
That's all folks.
Let's see that before one more time.
Yeah, I think I'll keep her....
I was inspired by many of the beautiful laundry rooms out there in Blogland, but are you aware there are still many a laundry room suffering from uglyitis? Do what you can to help by posting your laundry room redo today! You never know when you'll inspire someone : )
All of the paint for this project was on hand. I spent a couple of dollars on the milk glass and blue jar at a consignment shop. The new hardware was on sale for pennies, PENNIES, I tell you.
