One of my least favorite household tasks, hands down, is doing laundry. I absolutely hate what seems to be endless cycles of sorting, washing, and folding. In an attempt to make this daunting chore a bit more enjoyable, I decided to completely makeover the space.
Here is a photo of what the room looked like when we first moved in:
It was dark, it was drab, and it was down right depressing.
Well, not anymore! Here’s how the space looks now:
HUUUGGGEEEE difference! I absolutely love the transformation!
The first thing that definitely had to go was the dingy beige. I knew that I wanted to brighten up the space and since I am obsessed with blue (the color I’ve chosen for the majority of our house), that’s the initial direction my mind went in.
However, Mr. H quickly vetoed this color choice and expressed that he thought a pop of color would be fun. So we picked a more daring color on the wheel- yellow!
I’m actually glad we went in this direction! Totally not something I would have typically done.
Once we had the color selection down, we still wanted to have some more fun with the space. I’d been toying with the idea of painting stripes and decided that this was the perfect room for this project.
Once the stripes were up, we got our washer and dryer out of storage and added a few accessories.
Here’s another look at the final room:
I think I may actually be inspired to start my spring cleaning and put this space to use!
What do you think of the transformation? I’d love to here from you!!
Don’t forget to check back in on Monday for our first challenge!!!
