Hi everyone! Happy Friday 🙂 Since I’m slowly converting My Knotted Life over here, I thought it’d be fun to start a “Flash Back Friday” series featuring some your your favorite past transformations from the old site. Plus I love a trip down memory lane :-). Enjoy today’s flashback to my laundry room makeover!
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 I 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 my house), that’s the initial direction my mind went in.
However, on second thought, I felt that maybe a pop of color would be fun. So I picked a more daring color on the wheel- yellow!
I’m actually glad I went in this direction- it was totally not something I would have typically done.
Once I had the color selection down, I knew 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, I got my 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 put this space to use!
Have a great weekend! Dare to Design!
