It’s been a long time coming….
After nearly 9 years of going up and down the basement stairs of my home to do the household laundry I FINALLY have the laundry mudroom of my dreams!
Are you ready to see the BEFORE????
The before was actually an covered small outdoor patio directly off of our porte-cochere.
Our contractor closed off the walls so we could convert the small patio into our laundry mudroom.
We never used the small patio space so it made sense to close it off and utilize it.
Why did it take nine long years to finally move my laundry room from the basement?
Well, all it took was me slipping and falling down the basement stairs one day with a pile of laundry
in my arms for my husband to say “Oh S*#@!!!. I best we do something NOW to fix this situation. 😉
The results turned our better than I could have ever imagined!
Our door from the garage to the mudroom.
I commissioned the lovely and super talented Debi Coules to hand paint my Hayslip Cottage sign.
She did a gorgeous job! I absolutely love it!
I knew from the very beginning that I wanted pale mint green walls with black and white tile floors.
The paint is called “Mint Fizz” by Behr paint.
I have storage baskets for umbrellas and linens.
While the cute lamb planter hold my car keys.
The candy apple red machines look GREAT in the laundry room!
The cabinets are Thomasville cabinetry from Home Depot.
Of course I added pink depression knobs!
The floral tole chandelier I purchased on Ebay.
I love my drying rack.
I purchased it from Ballard Designs.
I had fun decorating the room with vintage laundry items from the past.
This old washboard makes the perfect magnet holder!
Im starting to collect old laundry ad’s from the 50’s.
I thought they would be fun to frame and hang up.
I had my contractor custom build this bead board cabinet.
It’s perfect to hold laundry items and collectables.
The pink elephant planter hold safety pins and the clear jar is for hubbies loose pocket change that I always manage to fish out from his pockets.
Old tin containers and packaging.
How adorable is this pink W&D?
Lastly, I have to show and tell this book that I found on Ebay.
I don’t know about you but I always wear a big formal dress and fancy updo when doing my laundry. 😉
I cannot even begin to describe how nice it is to finally have a real laundry room that’s bright, cheery, and super convenient.
It was long overdue but worth the wait!
Thanks for stopping by friends!
