Laundry Room Make-over... Part 1

So, my neighbor Bonnie painted her laundry room canteloupe...and I LOVE it. She said, "If you have to do laundry, you might as well do it in a fun place" 

I couldn't agree more, and mine is most definitely not fun. 

You can't tell from this picture, but the stock color of our house is this interesting shade of urine yellow (of a very hydrated person, of course). Needless to say, my laundry room is not fun. 

Nor is it very efficient- Doug and I put this shelf in there that we got out of a different room in the house and it has been a tremendous help, previously all our stuff sat on top of the washing machine. Put there is still a lot of a stuff that I feel a utility room should house... (light bulbs, for instance).

Step one of the makeover, paint! I love it.

I'm still going to do some more work on it- like maybe cabinets? And some red baskets on my shelf?

Doug loved it by the way.  And he thought I did a much better job rolling than the last time I up and painted a room...that is definitely what I am most proud of, he liked my rolling!


  1. Too cute! You know you got a good one when he can appreciate your rolling. The color looks great with your washer and dryer.

  2. I am loving the color!! Good for you for taking on that project!

  3. I love it! What is that color? I need to paint our laundry "room" too (it's not big enough to call a room... but whatever).

  4. Yes, I must say I have ne'r been paid a nicer compliment that "good rolling, buddy"

    Britney- I'll totally come help you with painting- if you turn the music up REAL loud, it's pretty therapeutic.

    Britt, it's "Atta boy blue" a Disney color from home depot.

  5. I like it! And, I feel like your shelf is even more organized as a result.

  6. I am OBSESSED! I must have this paint color in my house someday. And what about those high-high roller washer/dryers! Sweeeettt!!!
