We completed this project about 2 years ago and it occurred to me that I never put a post together on it… better late than never, right? I’ll try to keep this short and sweet, this project did take some time, but wasn’t overly complicated.
We started with a pretty standard (and ugly) laundry room.
I wanted something that was pretty, but also more functional. The absolute must haves on my list were a countertop over the washer and dryer and a shelf to cover the plumber’s box. We also wanted to do this project budget-friendly, but there were also a few splurges.
Here is an overview of the project:
- remove the open shelves and replace with cabinets (with smaller open shelves in the middle)
- add the countertop and base cabinet with stainless steel sink and pull out garbage can. We made the countertop out of wood and stained with a combination of black and gray stain.
- shiplap on the wall
- replace the florescent light with something more decorative
- Cover the plumber’s box
- add decorative peel and stick tile over the existing
- replace the door with something more aesthetically pleasing. We found this old door at the habitat restore store and refinished it.
- paint the beige walls with Harbor Gray by Benjamin Moore and add decorative accessories
