Painting The Laundry Room And Installing Cabinets

The last time I shared a laundry room update, we had just installed the new black slate tile, and the room was officially ready for paint and cabinets! You may remember from when I introduced the house, but the original laundry room was actually just a little section in the garage. There wasn’t a room, […]

New Walls In The Laundry Room

In order to make the downstairs bedroom into the new laundry room, we had to separate the space from the previous closet by adding a wall. We also needed to have a way to bring plumbing and electric into the room without tearing into the existing walls and causing additional dry wall repair.  Because we […]

Demo’ing The Laundry Room

With the design plan in place, it’s officially time to start talking about demo’ing the laundry room. There are three rooms in the house that we’re trying to have done in time to move in by the end of the month… Yes, I said the end of the month, as in January. We may be […]

The Laundry Room Design Plan

If you remember the first tour I shared of The Willow House, downstairs there was a teeny, tiny bedroom with it’s own walk in closet. Big enough for just about a twin sized bed, it was another room that didn’t really make sense. And why the smallest room in the house was the one with […]

Laundry Room Cabinet Hardware

Cabinet hardware makes a huge difference for cabinetry. Not only is it functional, but it’s also a great way to identify and create a style. We recently installed cabinet hardware in our laundry room, and I am completely amazed at how much it has changed the room, and how much more expensive the cabinets look! […]

Laundry Room Sign

I’m still working on the laundry room, bit by bit, but since we completed all the large projects (see here, here & here), I’m focusing more of my time and attention on the details. Much like this one: I wanted to add a farmhouse/ vintage-y vibe to the room, so I made my own sign…. […]

Laundry Room Plank Wall

We get to check another big item off of our laundry room to- do list today: the plank wall! I’ve wanted this to be done for sooo long. And just like every project we’ve done in the laundry room, this isn’t just for looks. It has a very serious role: hiding our builders sloppy work. […]

DIY Laundry Room Crates

Our laundry room is now one project closer to being done! Yes! Last weekend Anthony had a spare second, so I begged him to do a project for me. Turns out, he might not be immune to my begging after all. Either that, or he was sick of hearing me talk about laundry room crates. […]

Hanging Ironing Board Rack

I’m all about making my life easier. And my ironing board situation was doing anything but that. Every time I needed to iron, I would have to pull it out of the very back of our guest bedroom closet and move it to the kitchen, which is just about in the middle from the laundry […]

DIY Laundry Room Side Table- Pottery Barn Style

Remember a while back when I showed you the perfect side table for our laundry room? No? It’s been awhile…. Well shortly after I proclaimed my whole hearted love for the thing, I talked my welder hubby into making my own version with its own unique dimensions. For starters, our laundry room is long and […]

Built in Washer & Dryer Surround {Laundry Room Update}

My hubby and I love DIY, but our latest project just about ended it for us! Like, we almost threw in the towel. Gave it up. Turned our heads and never looked back. Walked away. Not because we couldn’t do it- never that {We are DIY’ers, hear us roar!}, but seeing how messed up and […]

New Laundry Room Paint

Remember when I told you that I wanted to get started fixing up our laundry room? If you’ve forgotten, I really can’t blame you. It seems like I talked about it forever ago. But just because I haven’t been blogging about it doesn’t mean that we haven’t been busy scheming up new ways to improve […]

Laundry Room Console Table

I’ve been bitten. By the furniture bug, that it. The laundry room is getting ready for a complete makeover. Remember? We talked about this. I shared everything that’s  been brutally bugging me since we moved in. Happy times. Anyways, I was cruising around the great www and I ran into a lovely console table that […]

The Laundry Room Saga…

The laundry room…. sigh…. one of the only rooms that did not turn out the way I had hoped. We’ve only lived in our new house for about 6 months, but for 6 months I have hated the way the laundry room turned out. We were in such a rush to move into our house, […]
