Laundry Room Makeover
Never seen a Laundry Room Makeover look so good; and yes I’m biased.

My laundry room has been on my To-Do list since I moved in to my house three years ago. I brought my house brand new but a lot of my rooms were and still are cookie cutter. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the grey tones and the style of it, but as a creative blogger, the grey walls and bland tile just wasn’t cutting it for a sister.
So I am so excited to finally be sharing the final review with you guys. With a little bit of paint and some elbow grease, I was able to totally transform this room with less than $400. Keep this between us, but the original planned budget was $200. If you are wondering, “How on earth did you blow the budget by $200?” Well…read on and find out.

The first step in the laundry room makeover process was the stenciled wall. I knew this was going to be both a great idea and horrible idea. Why do you ask? Because everyone knows stencils look awesome, but the road to get there; not so pretty.
I can surely attest to that because halfway through stenciling the wall, I was questioning myself, saying, “What in the world were you thinking?” Fortunately I stuck with it and was able to ‘Get Ur Done,” and I’m so glad I did because I love the way it turned out! For all the details on how I created this stenciled wall check out my Laundry Makeover – Stenciled Wall Post.
I am always amazed by how a little paint can go a long way. Painting my laundry room storage cabinets really lightened up the room and made my laundry room feel a little bigger.
Now this is one thing just about anyone can do to update a space. I used Grey Behr Paint to coat these cabinets. Details for paint is listed in the Stencil post.
VINYL FLOORING INSTALL
The tile in the laundry room was probably the one I was most anticipating covering up. For a while now I have been secretly wanting to replace all of the tile in my kitchen and laundry room. Unfortunately, this vinyl flooring didn’t get to the kitchen but I was happy to get this vinyl flooring in my laundry room.
I knew this vinyl flooring would make a difference but I was pleasantly surprised just by how much the flooring made a difference, and for my first time installing vinyl flooring, it was very easy to install. The great part was it only cost me about $115 for materials to install. Sounds like a win to me.

Peel and Stick Tile
Now I’m sure by now you’re still wondering, were did you go over budget, well the time has come; the Peel and Stick tile!!!! This part of the laundry room design was not planned at all, but after painting the cabinets and the stencil, it was clear that the plain grey wall behind where the washer would go was just to plain for me, and if you really know me; you would probably agree.
So at the last minute I found this peel and stick tile from Home depot and it was the perfect addition to the laundry room. I lucked out on this one and just happened to walk down the right aisle and WAAAAA-LAAAAH; I struck gold.

With any makeover, updating appliances is always a great way to make the space really look updated and modernized. Thanks to my friends over at Home Depot, I was able to pick out a great new GE washer and dryer addition to my laundry room.
My old washer and dryer were on its lasts leg, so these new GE appliances were right on time, and the difference that they made in the newly designed laundry room was like Night and Day. I really love the Diamond Grey Finish. Check out my post on the Home Depot Blog to read up on why I chose these particular GE laundry appliances.
Let’s check out some more of my laundry room before and after pics. I’m more than satisfied how everything came out.
and although I went a little over budget, I couldn't have been happier with the final outcome. I think the extra money was well worth it, and even thought the wall stencil was a bit tedious. Im in love with how it came out.
