Last week I told you about the changes I was going to make to our laundry room for the $100 Room Challenge. Let’s see where we are with the list of things I’d like to accomplish in this mini laundry room makeover.
- Shorten the footboard to fit the closet width. DONE
- Paint the lower cabinets and change the hardware – primed and first coat of paint applied.
- Add a shelf to the back wall to use for folding table and add space for laundry baskets.
- Repaint or decorative stencil – Ordered and received (oh my goodness, it’s adorable!)
My husband and I cut the footboard down and got it back together with the use of our Kreg jig and Dap wood glue (that stuff is AMAZING) and filled the gaps, cracks and any dings with Dap plastic wood filler we already had on hand.
We let it dry over night, then primed and painted it. Obviously, these are “in-process” shots. I’ll show you the finished masterpiece later!
It perfectly fits in the space in front of the litter box, keeping the dogs out while letting the cats in. Perfect!
As for the shelf for the back wall, we have a bunch of pieces of melamine in the garage from when we re-did our kitchen at the old house. I think we will also be adding a few shelves above where the litter box sits at the bottom of the old closet. Seems like a waste of space if we don’t utilize it.
So, that’s where we are right now with the laundry room makeover. Being kind of new at these types of makeovers, I’m always worried about showing too much, too soon. I don’t want to spoil the surprise! 🙂
Check out where the other participants are in their challenge! I’m so inspired by these ladies – it’s amazing what $100 and some imagination can accomplish!
