One Room Challenge REVEAL / the laundry room

Reveal day is here! Redoing our laundry room for the One Room Challenge has been such a fun experience for me. Its been great to have the push to finally finish the room and the accountability that we only had 6 short weeks! If you are just catching up, this post has the introduction to the space and before photos, this post has the design plan,  this post has sheetrock and paint up, this post has details on the DIY shelves and lighting, and this post has our DIY dutch door and electical panel cover. And now that everyone is caught up, lets get to the reveal!
I am so grateful for my sweet and talented friend Sophie Brendle Photography who captured this space for me. What would us bloggers do without talented photographers? It seriously takes a village. 



We've come a long way, do you remember these befores? See more before photos here. I never thought I would be so excited to see 4 walls. #adulting


The DIY Dutch door turned out so well and now because the laundry room is so pretty I leave the top open most of the time. An added benefit is that I notice more that my laundry is ready to move over so I actually might finish laundry before dinner some days. Maybe not but its still pretty to look at now. It also is the best place to put up our golden retriever when people come over. More details on the dutch door here. I painted it Benjamin Moore onyx to match the other doors in the house. 
The walls in the laundry room are Benjamin Moore Brewster Grey. I hung two of these ikea rails on the wall to hang out clothes that don't need to go in the dryer (and have already used them a lot) with two vintage ship paintings above. The Ikea rails were $10 a piece verses the $25 a piece for the original towels bars I was looking at. Our DIY pantry shelves are next to the rails and I'm so excited to actually have a space for all my food so its not shoved in the upper cabinets in the kitchen! 

On the other side of the room live the washer and dryer with an Ikea butcher block counter-top (last year when we bought our kitchen counter-tops we bought an extra 6' length knowing we would do the laundry room eventually). The plug in sconces are so pretty for $30 a piece (details here) and the DIY electrical panel is one of my favorite things in the space! And we hung the butcher block higher than it needed to be over our washer and dryer as the new washers are typically taller then the ones we have and we didn't want to have to redo the butcher block when ours need to be replaced.


I put a couple of glass vases on top of the butcher block to hold laundry essentials and to catch the lint that I inevitably clean and then let sit in a pile on top of the dryer until it annoys me. 
I really love everything about this room, it was so fun to have a vision and bring it fully to completion in 6 weeks. I'll be back next week with a budget breakdown and source list for the space, (hint: we spent less than $1000 to do this entire room including finishing the walls, lighting, shelving, countertops and every trim piece and accessory). 

Thanks so much to Linda for hosting and make sure you check out all the other room reveals over at One Room Challenge, there are so many good ones!
