    Love it. At present I am painting my bathroom that has plank cedar. It has made such an amazing difference. Who says wood painted doesn’t look good(besides your husband) Mr. wood-grain. Your laundry room looks amazing. I still need to make a cover for my ironing board. Your ideas are wonderful. Keep them coming!!!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Elsie! I’m loving the way it turned out too. Your planks will turn out fabulous, I have no doubt!
      That husband of mine… I think I’ll keep him though! πŸ™‚
      Thank you for the sweet comment!

    Your laundry room is gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to do white planked walls somewhere in my home and this has inspired me to quit procrastinating and get it done. I love how light and bright it’s made the room!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Tricia! I love the way it looks & how it’s brightened everything up too!
      You will absolutely love yours! πŸ™‚

    This is just beautiful! It is amazing at what some planks can do!

  9. Rhonda says:

    Wow! Now, THAT is a laundry room. I love it all – the planking, the ticking stripe, the crates. Gorgeous!

  10. This is so great. I want to do a plank wall in my half bath, but haven’t gotten up the nerve to go for it yet. I think it would look so cool. I love the laundry room!!
    I would love it if you shared at my first blog party ever, Weekend Beautiful.

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much, Shawna! I’m happy you love it! You should absolutely do a plank wall…. they’re beyond lovely!
      Thanks so much for the invite to your party. I’ll stop by to link up! πŸ™‚

  11. Shayna this is just so beautiful! great work and I bet it’s a big load [pun] off your mind to have this room done. can I ask you how you dealt with the power outlet? did you use an extender to pull it forward so it rests on the plank? For the last year I’ve been stalking my house trying to decide which room to plank and they all have light switches/power outlets to contend with.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful project!

  12. Margo says:

    I love the plank wall. Do you actually have a tutorial for it? Or can you tell me what type of wood you used?
    Thanks and Have a Blessed Day.

  13. Cecilia says:

    Beautiful transformation. It looks great! I am working on mine and hope it turns out half as well. πŸ™‚
    Hugs, Cecilia

  15. Jamie says:

    Amazing job….this is a laundry room that would be a pleasure to be in! I’m loving the wood crates underneath your washer and dryer….I’ve never seen this before but it is such a great way to be able to sort your dirty laundry and keep it out of sight….I may have to use this idea!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much for the super sweet comment, Jamie! I am loving it too— and the crates work fabulously! πŸ™‚

  16. LOVE this! I am planning a laundry room makeover and needed a little more inspiration and this fit the bill!

  17. Deb-IL says:

    Wow. Double wow. Got here from Inspiration for Decoration and just added you to my reader list. I’m looking forward to back tracking through your projects to catch up. Wow. Did I already say that?

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much for the super sweet comment, Deb! I’m so happy you found me! Welcome to the WGC! πŸ™‚

  18. Shayna, your laundry room looks AMAZING! I hear ya on the builder’s sloppy work. We have a lot of that in our home (along with previous owner sloppy work!), but it feels so great to get it all cleaned up, doesn’t it? That wall just sets off the whole room, and those wood storage bins are super cute! Simply White looks great on the planked walls. I’d love to feature this on my paint color blog, Involving Color. Let me know if you’re interested!

      THANK YOU so very much for the super sweet comment, Jena! πŸ™‚
      I would be happy for you to share it and feature it on your blog. The paint color on the planks is Super White by Benjamin Moore and the rest of the room is Halo by Benjamin Moore. Love them both! πŸ™‚

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much for the super sweet comment, Carissa! I’m so happy to have you following along! Welcome to the WGC! πŸ™‚

  21. Cristy says:

    I love the plank look. It’s s so beautiful. We are adding vertical planks in a small bathroom this weekend. I’m curious what paint you used from Benjamin Moore? I know the color but I’m wondering if it’s oil based and what sheen you used. I definitely don’t want to look glossy and yours is exactly the look I’m trying to achieve. Appriciate the help.

    Could you tell me the dimensions of your laundry room? Im working on a new build with a very similar layout for the washer and dryer but I am concerned that my space may be too narrow.

    Thank you!!!

    PS: Love the plank wall! May have to work that in too πŸ™‚

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Heather! Our laundry room is 10 foot long x 44″ wide. However, where the washer, dryer and cabinets are “built into” the wall, it is 73″ wide. With them built in, everything is still 44″ wide, making everything flush. Our laundry room isn’t really wide, but I’ve honestly never had a problem with it. I hope that makes sense… πŸ˜€

    Love the look of this, truly beautiful. A little late to comment, but would love to hear how this is holding up for you. Wanting to do this as a kitchen backsplash and trying to decide what material to use-do you think this plywood would hold up? I’ve also seen people use wood wall planks that fit together (with a somewhat beveled or “v” spacing) but I’m more interested in true spacing. Any other advice?

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Anne! Thank you so much! I do think the material of this planking would hold up as a kitchen backsplash. I wouldn’t have any worries about using it. The tongue and groove is another great option, but I think the planking would be easier to clean. I hope that helps! πŸ™‚

  25. […] like the other plank walls we’ve done in the house, see here, here and here, we used 4 x 8 sheets of 1/4″ flooring underlayment. We used our table saw and […]
