Room Renovation: Laundry Room Week 6
Can yall believe it?! Its finally reveal week for our laundry room renovation, and I can’t wait to show you how it all turned out! If you are joining us now for the first time, we are participating in our first One Room Challenge! This is an amazing opportunity for fellow bloggers to come together & take on a room renovation in only 6 weeks. Better Homes & Gardens is sponsoring the Challenge & there are so many talented bloggers taking on room renovations! Its the week we finally get to see everyone’s wonderful designs come to life!
For our very first One Room Challenge, we decided to take on a space I dread spending any time in. I’m not totally sure if this renovation was a clever way for Justin to get me to do more laundry or what, but I am in love love love with the finished product!
Let’s take a peek at the before laundry room so you can get an idea of where we started.
Basically, it was pretty boring with not a lot of functional storage space. I hated that cabinet it was so awkward for the space & actually made the room look smaller. I also had nowhere to hang clothes that needed to air dry & the door took up a lot of the small space because it didn’t lay flush against the wall when it was open. The whole room was just very blah & that’s why I procrastinated doing any of the laundry ( that’s my story & I’m sticking to it).
Now on to the big reveal, I know yall can’t wait, & I am so excited to share it with you!
I am so happy with this room it has everything I could want in a laundry room.
Justin just installed these beautiful barn doors yesterday! They are perfect because they save me space in the room & the rustic handles match my rustic DIY shelving.
I’m this “new” rolling carts biggest fan. It fits perfectly between the washer & dryer & hides all my cleaning supplies. The best part is I didn’t have to buy it! I just took an old bookcase, painted it, added casters & a handle. Easy peasy & so functional!
These DIY industrial shelves are amazing! They were super easy to make (check out how here). They add the modern farmhouse flair I wanted & are great for storage.
This is probably one of my favorite projects from the remodel. I originally wanted a sign from Amazon that I fell in love with, but the sliding barn doors cost a tad more than I originally planned & if we were gonna stay in budget I had to DIY some things. You can check out my DIY wooden sign & how to make your own for under $10 here!
This DIY ladder drying rack is another cost saver & super functional! I like to keep a basket of hangers for the items that can’t just drape over the ladder. It was very easy to make, check it all out in week 4.
I think the shiplap walls add lots of flair to the room & really make it feel taller & larger. We used plywood so that saved us a ton of money, check it out in week 2! The shiplap is painted Sherwin Williams Slate Tile & used Sherwin Williams White Duck for the other three walls.
That’s a wrap! Our first official One Room Challenge is complete (check out our practice run office renovation)! I am so happy with the results I think we will have clean clothes much more often which Justin will be thrilled about. We stayed pretty close to budget too so that’s a win for everyone.
Heres a break down of the entire project cost:
- Shiplap- $41
- DIY Wooden Sign- $10
- Drying Rack Ladder- $10
- Paint- $48
- Sliding Barn Doors- $400
- DIY Industrial Shelves approx $35
I only went over budget by $44 so I am thrilled! I am so happy to have been able to participate in the One Room Challenge & I can’t wait for the Spring challenge. Want a hint on what room we will be taking on next……
That’s right yall we are adding a little one to our tribe & we couldn’t be happier!
