As promised, it's finally time to show you my completed Laundry Room. But first, let's take a look at where we started:
And here's where we are today:
I love this little corner with one of my favorite quotes framed and the fun "My Stache" jar I etched.
This drying rack from Ikea has been used countless times already, and I love the new utility sink and rack above it which holds paper towels, sponges and a finger nail scrub brush for all the paint, stain and dirt I get under my nails when doing projects. Maybe someday we'll upgrade to a fancier laundry tub, but right now, with dozens of dirty projects still ahead of us, I'm glad to have a place to rinse out paint, grout and other messes without worrying about ruining the sink.
After the total mess that was the laundry shoot, I'm so proud of how it, and the shelving turned out.
And how about this sexy rug that I painted?
This is one of my favorite photos of Ry ever, and I thought it would bring a smile to my face whenever I was in there folding insurmountable amounts of laundry. And that watering can? It's from Ikea and started like this:
So I pulled out my trusty can of Rustoleum Night Tide which was left over from this project. Piece of cake.
And here's some more of that great wood counter top from Ikea.
And a shot of the fabric I hung to hide the ugly outlets and plugs.
I even organized the cupboards a bit. By removing all the shelving from this one I have the perfect space for a hamper and a place to store laundry baskets when not in use.
The top cupboards hold towels and extra bedding.
While the bottom holds rag towels, the first aid kit and cleaning supplies.
So there she is. Barely 50 square feet, but a whole lot of work and projects. If every room in this house takes as much work, I'm in for some trouble. For this room, a dream, main floor Laundry Room in my dream house, it was totally worth it.
