There was one room in my house that you never saw, or at least I hoped no one ever saw...my laundry room. Surprisingly, it was the ONLY room in our entire house that had never seen another paint color than the original the builder did 7 years ago. I know, ME! The one who paints and repaints walls constantly had a blank canvas and an undecorated room. Every time I mentioned to my husband that I needed to clean up the laundry room, he would say "Why? No one sees it why spend the time and money on it?". Well, I see it! So, while doing laundry last week I decided that was about to change. I needed a calm and relaxing environment even if no one benefits from it but me.
Here is the boring and realistic BEFORE:
My biggest complaint was lack of storage and use of space. These wire shelves...weren't cutting it. I would get so frustrated when items would fall through the slits and land behind my washer and dryer. I really wanted some custom built-ins that held a lot; yet, could conceal items to make it look a little bit more appealing. However, I didn't want to PAY for custom built-ins...so I decided to customize and build my own!
Here is the finished AFTER:
This was really hard to photograph due to the angle of the room and doorway, but here is a glimpse of the inside with the cabinet doors open:
I LOVE how they turned out and am very excited to fill up all these cupboards!
I painted the room Valspar's Notre Dame, a very soft gray.
