My New Laundry Room Reveal

So as you know I have been working on my laundry room for the past two weeks, And let me tell you there was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that went into this project, But in the end I am so loving how it turned out.. I know it looks a little dark But I assure you that it is not, I ended up having a friend help me install the shelving because I couldn't find any that I liked, These are so much stronger than the wire kind.. The paint is called Zinc (Martha Stewart) I cheated and had Lowe's color match it (Sorry Martha) and the flooring is a high grade peel and stick.The baskets and laundry hamper I bought over the summer at good old Home Good. I hid the heating and cooling system and water heater with a King size sheet hemmed and put up with a tension rod. I am still waiting for the lighting I ordered to come in But in the mean time do you remember what the Laundry Room looked like????


                                                BEFORE




                                  And here is the AFTER















So what do you think? Thank you to all of my girlfriends Hubbies that helped me with all the hard things that I could have never done without your help....

That looks so much better! I love the wall color and the hot and cold faucet pics! And the shelves are definitely going to be something I do in my laundry - so tired of those wire things! Can't wait to see your new lighting too!

Amy Kinser said...

Hey girl!!! I think it looks just great. I LOVE the paint color and that sheet covering up the units back there is just great. Love the stack of gray and white washrags also. Pretty laundry days ahead!!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh my, this looks amazing. What a great place to do your laundry. Everything is so nice and so pretty. The sheet is a fabulous idea. Easy to get to the units if need be and you can also launder the sheet if you need to. I am totally impressed. Hugs, Marty

SavannahGranny said...

Pattie, your makeover is awesome. that paint color is great. I need to think of a place to use that color.
Really loving the artwork, too cool.
Love the look of the sheet. IT really cleaned up the look.
Am I the only one worried about the fabric so close to the heat and water heater? It looks awesome but I want you to be safe. Gas would be a big problem but if you systems are electric I really don't know.
Have a great week.
Blessings, Ginger

Oh Pattie it looks amazing!!
Love the color palette!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That looks FANTASTIC, Pattie! What an inspiration you are with this laundry room. I can't believe this is the same room from the "before". Love, love the curtain you made to hide all the mechanicals. Love the color and your faucet art work. Great hamper; I need one of those and will have to search out a Home Goods in our new state.

Visiting from Met Monday : )

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

Love the colour you used for the paint. Can not believe what a great change adding a curtain made. Clothes pins in the jar makes a great visual. Congratulations on your makeover.

Abby said...

The paint color is just lovely! Great transformation!

DebbieP said...

Fan-tab-u-lous! If I didn't know better, I would think a professional decorator came in to redo that room. :-) You have such great talent and taste. Way to go!

Kristin said...

That color looks great against the light tones of the appliances and the curtain. I LOVE the prints too - did you make those?

Thanks for sharing at Simply Klassic Home!

Sweet Melanie said...

Love the laundry room!!! The curtain is just the perfect way to hide the tank and furnace...great way of doing that! You do such a great job Pattie!

Darcy Wallingford said...

It is good that you still made an effort to keep your laundry room organized. There are some people who do not pay much attention to the laundry room because it is a part of the home which almost no one sees except the owner. Installing a heater is also a wise decision. You can still do laundry at night without feeling any chills!
