If you are just catching up, we are redoing our laundry room in 6 short weeks as part of Linda (from Calling it Home) Guest Participant's One Room Challenge. Head to this post for an introduction of the laundry room, including before shots of the room with the open instead of a wall we lived with for a year. Last week's update includes a detailed floor plan, see that post here.
- I've been collecting lots of little pretties for the room and I'm so impatient to get styling. I got the ship wood prints from a local antique store, the basket is from Home Goods and the antique washer board which I can't wait to hang on the wall is from a local antique store that is housed in an old prison. The amber vase is from the Target Dollar aisle and the marble obelisk I'm obsessed with is a lucky score from tjmaxx #colddeadfingers. The hooks were a favorite find of mine- I was seriously considering shelling out $18 a piece for these hooks from Anthropologie when I found these from Hobby Lobby for $5 each. They seriously look identical.
-We went from this...
I still can't believe it!
-The color is brewster grey from Benjamin Moore- its the color of our old master bedroom and its one of my favorite colors eva.
- The light got hung! We did the same ones we DIY'd in our kitchen (this post has the info about the DIY- and lots of before pictures of the kitchen too!) I did have a little bit of a freakout moment about the lighting because the flush mount is filtered and doesn't give out a ton of light. I wanted filtered because the ceilings are so low I felt like exposed bright bulbs would be too harsh. Sooo we ordered a couple sconces for the walls which I had been wanting in here anyhow so #winwin.
- This is a peek at one of my favorite DIY's in progress- I'll report back once its finished!
-So this next week is all about shelving and countertops. Luke has been working on cutting out the butcher block and we got the boards for the shelves so hopefully I'll have a good progress report next week. Also I've been posting details and the progress of a lot of our projects on instagram and insta stories so feel free to follow along (acreativedayblog).
