First, let me remind you what it looked like before.
Basically, it was one big hot mess. And this is what it looks like today...
There is still a good bit that I want to do before it will actually be finished but we have definitely made progress. I'll start from the top and tell you what we've done and what we still want to do.
First thing we did was take down the horrible wire shelves and patch all the holes in the wall and there were a lot of holes! I'm not sure why, but the people who lived here before us were a bit excessive with nailing stuff in the wall. Once everything was patched, we painted the room a beautiful gray and installed some cabinets. The cabinets were some cheap ones from Lowe's that we painted white and then added knobs.
We are planning to add crown molding to the top very soon. We are going to do it ourselves but first have to get an outlet hooked up for the compresser. I also want to
get make some wood bins or buy some baskets to go on top of the shelves.
We added a shelf above the washer and dryer and I am in love with the way it turned out. I bought the jars from Target and used my Cricut to add vinyl to them.
I still have to touch up the paint under the cabinets (I'm a bit of a sloppy painter) and I'm going to buy another jar to put stain remover in. I'm going to look for a basket to keep my dryer sheets in and also want to find a sign to hang on the wall.
We put down new floors as well and added new baseboards.
I need something to put on this wall but haven't thought of what I want to go there yet. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. You can't see it but I also want to add a different light.
I've been trying to "Go Green" this year and have been experimenting with homemade laundry detergent and stain fighters. I'm going to post about those very soon and will hopefully be posting soon about our finished room!
