Surprise laundry room makeover

So you saw on Friday that I’ve started making over our laundry room. As I said, this project kind of snuck up on me. Yeah the laundry room was on my Home Goals 2014 list, but I wasn’t exactly sure when I was going to tackle it. Fall was always in my mind.

But then the stars aligned last weekend.

My thought process went something like this:

“Dad’s here today. He can help me get the table saw running and cut the strips to trim out the cabinets.”

“Dad brought his air compressor. Maybe he’ll leave it with me so I can attach the strips to the cabinets.”

“I have the Advance paint out for the bookshelves and a good stash of foam rollers. I might as well paint the cabinets at the same time.”

So my go-with-the-flow non-project plan for September has resulted in the biggest project of the year.

That’s absolutely okay with me. Here’s the before picture. I think you can probably see why I’m so excited to have this makeover started. Functional? Absolutely yes. Pretty. Not so much.

I feel good about the possibility of having the makeover done before the end of the year, thereby meeting one of my home goals for the year. I feel even better about the possibility of the makeover matching the picture in my head. It’s not just going to be pretty. It’s gonna be puuuuuuurty.

Here’s some of my inspiration for the laundry room.

I’m not doing one of my formal project plans. At least not yet. I’m sticking with my September plan of going with the flow. So, I’ll be back with an update when I’m back.

Do you have a pretty laundry room? What’s on your dream laundry room wish list? Do you have any suggestions for what I should do to my laundry room?
