HOLY COW, I’M FINALLY DONE!!! I am so excited to be able to share my finished Spring 2019 One Room Challenge Project with all of you! What a relief! This project definitely took longer than we were expecting it to, but it was so worth it. Let’s take a look below at a few images of where we started.
And some progress shots, of course!
And below is where we are today! I’m SO HAPPY with how the laundry room turned out and it’s already impacted my day-to-day life in such a positive way. Laundry was such a dreaded task before because the washer and dryer were essentially inside the garage and the area was always filthy. It was super gross trying to clean our clothes in such a dusty and dirty atmosphere. I was always behind on laundry because I had no desire to go out in the garage to take care of business, but now it’s easy peasy! So without further ado, let’s check out the finished product!
For those of you who have been following me for awhile or recall my dining room remodel post awhile back, there used to be a door there where the opening into the hallway is now.
I’m absolutely in love with all of the lights Mitzi by Hudson Valley Lighting so graciously gifted me for this project. This is the Avery Semi-flush Mount. It blends so perfectly with the rest of my lighting and décor, yet isn’t too bold. Love it!
Here you get a peak at the wood wall I designed and my husband built. It’s definitely Art Deco-inspired, which is sort of my thing, if ya haven’t noticed! I love the way it works so well with the mural too. When I design a room I like to try to use various elements that mimic each other in shape and form and I feel like I’ve definitely pulled that off here! Below is a closer look at the wall as well as the moulding I designed to frame out the Beige Geometric Shapes Modern Bauhaus Wallpaper Mural I received from Murals Wallpaper.
Here you can see the Mitzi Petra Semi-flush Mount Light I chose to use in here. It’s such a statement piece! And just like the moulding mimics the mural, the light mimics the wood wall my husband built. They look oh so perfect together! I’m obsessed!
Part of the reason we took down the wall that was here previously and replaced it with the wood wall is because I really wanted a sink for cleaning the mud off the kids’ shoes and soaking stained clothes. We didn’t have much space to work with, so we opted not to build a cabinet around the washer and dryer, as was the initial plan; and we also decided to use the wood wall since it would take up less space, as opposed to building a regular wall and having a doorway as we did before. I wanted it to be as open as possible and it turned out just as I imagined! This sink sitch is actually even better than what I could’ve hoped for.
As far as the nitty gritty goes, I chose to use a Kingston Brass faucet because that’s generally what I’ve used for all of my reno projects. They hold up well, they’re affordable, and they’re good-looking. That’s a win, if ya ask me! This particular model is the Concord. The tile is handmade 3×3 squares from Fireclay Tile in Tuolumne Meadows. I love the way the color looks with the mural and the artwork I was gifted by Society 6. Last, but definitely not least, that super rad concrete and brass wall sconce you see there is also from Mitzi. It’s called the Macy Wall Sconce. It’s new to Mitzi and it’s such a stunner.
See how the wood wall lets the light in? In addition to saving space, it really helps to brighten up the sink area. Below is another view of the Bilden Mural and Petra Semi-flushmount Light.
And there you have it! Spring 2019 One Room Challenge is one for the books! I’m so relieved to be done with this project and so happy with how it turned out. True, I didn’t finish it on time, which is perfectly okay. The important thing is that we’ve kept at it and now we have a WAY MORE functional little laundry room. Sure, it’s small, but it’s big on style, just the way I like it.
