Recently as I was blog hopping, I came to a blog posting at Belle Maison covering the most beautiful laundry room decor I have ever seen. It really started the creative juices flowing on a laundry room redo of my own. I found this laundry room redo covered at one of my favorite blogs, House of Turquoise, and knew what my next project was going to be.
Now, I just needed a laundry room to make beautiful!
After a month of moving into a new home, it was finally time to get the party started. My hubby and I are the happy parents of three boys, therefore, I spend a lot of time in my laundry room. I really wanted the space to be a beautiful extension of other parts of the house that for some odd reason, grab all the attention (the family room, our bedroom).
This is what it looked like before the makeover:
I am stuck with the dark oak cabinets, but, it is amazing what just a few, inexpensive details add to the space. First, I installed my front loading washer and dryer. The simple chandelier came from Home Depot and the two black and white rugs I picked up from Target.
The most important addition was painting the walls. I chose Benjamin Moore's Jamaican Aqua.
This color is in the House Beautiful Colors for Your Home book, and has been a popular color for a couple of years. I love this color so much I used it in my closet too. :)
