Over the past six weeks we have been working on renovating our laundry room through the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home and House Beautiful, to create a space that it more efficient and aesthetically pleasing. We have moved plumbing, added molding, painted every surface of this room and I am happy to say that the work is finally complet! Hooray!! I cannot WAIT to show you all our modern farmhouse laundry room reveal! It is GORGEOUS! But before I do that, let’s take a look back.
Yikes! I cannot believe I lived with it like that for nearly 2 years! You can check out each step of our progress over the past 5 weeks below.
You may remember I shared this inspiration board in my post from week 1. I wanted the room to be light, airy and neutral with lots of varying textures, and I believe I accomplished just that!
I am absolutely IN LOVE with how the room turned out! It has been a total transformation! Not only is the room more aesthetically pleasing, but it is so much more functional. We are using the room more efficiently, maximizing every inch of this small space! I love having a counter top to fold clothes and set my laundry baskets on as I work. And let’s not forget the hanging bar which will allow me to take clothes directly out of the dryer and put them straight on the hangers!
We decided to use a 3/4″ steel pipe and flanges for our hanging bar to give it a modern industrial feel. Then I spray painted them black to tie in with the cabinet hardware and my sign.
I love the way these clothespins look in the glass jars, they are the perfect laundry room jar filler! They may look old and worn, but they are actually brand new (**hint** I stained them using coffee, more info on that coming soon!).
Every room needs a pop of greenery, so I grabbed one of my MANY faux potted plants I have around the house and brought it in here along with a glass spray bottle of my favorite Dr. Bronner’s cleaning solution and a black wire basket.
If you missed my tutorial on how I DIYed the Laundry Co. sign you won’t want to miss it, it includes a free SVG stencil cut file for you to make your own!
This room has definitely become one of my favorite rooms in my home (I never thought I would say that about a laundry room, EVER)! Having an efficient space to get our clothes clean is a huge blessing that allows me to get the chore done more quickly so I can do more of the things that I love. I hope you all have enjoyed following along on this journey!
