The final week of the One Room Challenge is here and that means our laundry room is complete! Almost. Haha. All the big changes are done but I still want to make a cushion for the shoe bench and I have some touch up paint on the ceiling to do and to add the main door back that I painted white back on this room. But other than that, we are done and it feels soooo good. The majority of this post is going to be a lot of pictures of the before and afters to give you a sense of where we started and how far we came to get to this laundry room reveal.

The picture below is what it looked like before I started the paint. We had painted trim and add the wainscotting and some decor but other than that the floors, cabinets and florescent light had remained the same.

Looking at the before and after pictures is a little crazy for me because I know that Justin and I put in a lot of sweat equity to transform this room but it just amazes me where we started and what it looks like now!

The closet that has the water heater and other storage had brown closet doors that I just added some trim to and then painted white to match the rest of the trim.

I gave the brown shoe bench in the laundry room a makeover as well. It had blue and brown cushions that I donated and then I gave it a makeover with grey paint and raw wood trim glued to the insets (full tutorial on this coming soon). And now I want to make a long cushion to go on the seat.

These framed embroidery designs are from my Grandmother, I believe she or my Great-Grandmother did these and this was something special I was able to add. I love the vintage look of them and being someone who has done cross-stitch I know how long these type of pieces can take to complete.

I used two of my own cross-stitch prints as decor in this room as well. They are both laundry room themed so I thought they fit well

I was very excited to purchase a Ruggable rug for this project. These rugs are machine washable!! I have been wanting one for awhile and figured this was the perfect time to get one, it has a Velcro like backing that you peel the rug off of when you want to wash it. This is a perfect addition to this laundry room/mud room since we have the exterior door that is used a lot.

I love how clean this room works. I did have to get real life for y’all and show you the room after I had styled the room and taken photos. I brought in everything that would normally live in this room like my craft cart where I do all my Etsy shop stuff, the cat litter box also lives in here permanently. There are usually shoes are usually on the floor. The countertop usually has my craft stuff and there is usually a laundry basket on top of the dryer.

I wanted to show that although it looks super spotless and clean that is not what the room looks like during our day to day life. But it is so much better than it was, I love it and I am glad that we are done!

  1. Wow, it looks so great Amy! I recently completed a laundry room makeover too but it’s not up on the blog yet. I love that you used your family heirloom cross stitch pieces along with those you have done. I cannot do cross stitch, I am WAY too impatient and want to shred it after just a few stitches! haha!
