One Room Challenge Spring 2017 Reveal: Laundry Room Makeover

Reveal day of the One Room Challenge Spring 2017 is here. This season really made me work for it. My instastories told it all. Let this be a warning to future challenge participants, do not choose a laundry room because you think it'll be small and easy. It could not be further from the truth. Laundry rooms are awkward, clunky and are a Tetris game to paint. The good news is that even with all my missteps (ripping out the drywall, screws falling out of the drill, my hubby and I bickering over weird shelf brackets, wallpaper stuck on delivery, installing a last minute herringbone backsplash myself etc) I still managed to finish on time. My design is bit different than my original plan but I like it none the less. PS, I am still struggling with these photos (I have no natural light - any suggestions are welcomed).

To catch up on my process to date check out my previous posts here:
Week One (Laundry Room Makeover Plans); Week Two (Crazy Demo); Week Three (Repairing Drywall); Week Four (Painting and Counter-tops); Week Five (Wooden Bead Chandelier).


Here are some before pics.





This print will always remind me of the hard work I put into this tiny room (no offense to Napoleon).

  1. Wow! You did an amazing job in here! It looks great especially considering that you had to change your original design plans. I have to say my favourite piece though is the hustle artwork! ;)
