Thanks for joining me in the Spring 2020 edition of the One Room Challenge with Better Homes and Gardens! I have been making over my laundry room, and to recap you can see Week 1 here with the horrifying Before pictures (trust me, you’ll want to see it!) and my design plan. Week 2 was finding inspiration, clearing out the space, and finding an unwanted surprise. In Week 3, I started laying the peel and stick tile. In Week 4, I showed how to lay peel and stick tile. In Week 5-6, you can see some fabulous wall treatments for under $1!!! Finally, it’s Week 7, and I thought I’d recap and go over all the details. My laundry room isn’t quite finished yet, but it’s almost there!
Let’s start at the very beginning. It’s quite horrifying to see, but this was basically the condition of our laundry room for about 17 years. It became quite the little junk room, and we barely had enough room to move. I’m not sure why it took me so long to get to it, it was just one of those things I didn’t think about much, and when company would come over, we’d just shut the door.
You can see by the paint swatches, that I did at one time think about painting it, but never got around to it. The good thing about being in quarantine was that it gave me time to get to a lot of projects around the house, and think of new ones.
It all started with this sign. I bought the sign at Kirklands last summer with the idea that someday I would re-do the laundry room. The sign set the tone for a black and white theme. After I bought the sign, I found this great bar rack at Micheals. It was originally white, but I spray painted it black when I started the makeover. I wish they still carried it, but it’s discontinued.
While on the topic of spray paint, spray paint was the key element to the details of this laundry room makeover. In keeping with the theme of this Spring’s One Room Challenge to use what you have (which is pretty much always my theme!), I spray painted so many things that I already had this matte black, and I can’t believe how good they look!
I ordered this 2 pack of penny jars, and sprayed the lids the flat black.
I already had 3 of these chrome wire baskets, and you guessed it-they got sprayed as well.
These Slinga brackets from IKEA got a good coat of matte black as well. We took the shelves down from my son’s room years ago. Shelves and brackets are like gold, never ever get rid of them! They can always be painted for a fresh look!
And the piece de resistance of the details of this laundry room makeover is the flooring!
This beautiful peel and stick tile is by Wall Pops, and you can find it at JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, wallpops.com and on Amazon.
Stay tuned next week for the final reveal! I have a few more touches to add, and I’ll break down the budget, but you won’t believe how budget friendly this laundry room makeover was! I hope you enjoyed the details of this laundry room makeover! Be sure to check out the other entries to the Spring 2020 One Room Challenge with Better Homes and Gardens here!
