As week 3 of this month’s $100 Room Challenge comes to close, I have been busy wrapping up all the projects for the laundry room makeover. I’m so glad that Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry invited me to participate, because it’s one of my favorite makeovers to date! It’s looking so much better, even without the last bits finished. I can’t wait to show it to you next week… but for now, let’s see where we stand in the list of things I wanted to accomplish.
- Shorten the footboard to fit the closet width. DONE
- Paint the lower cabinets and change the hardware – DONE.
- Add a shelf to the back wall to use for folding table and add space for laundry baskets. DONE
- Repaint or decorative stencil – DONE
In addition to all those projects, I painted the door leading out to the garage. It was previously navy, but I wasn’t loving it in there, so it got a fresh coat of black satin. I love how the black lower cabinets and the door work together now.
I found the leash holder at the thrift store for $1.00 and found the ironing board and iron holder on Amazon here. When I bought it, it was $8.95, but prices could change. (affiliate link)
We also cut a few extra shelves for the closet to give us some more storage space for things like paper towels and garbage bags, etc. We used the melamine boards we used at the old house for all the shelves, and 1×2’s we had in the scrap pile for the supports. You can see the top of the kitty litter protector we made out of an old footboard at the bottom… still have to give it one last coat of paint.
I had planned on changing the hardware on the cabinets, but the size wasn’t available in the kind I wanted. Kind of a bummer, but the old ones look a little better now that the cabinets are black – at least that’s what I’m telling myself 🙂
I did finish the stencil on the one wall, but I’m waiting to show you til next week. It looks so much better in here already!!
Don’t forget to check out the progress of all my buddies! I can’t wait til all the final reveals next week!!
