A few weeks ago, I blogged about some MINOR laundry room updates & chatted about how I gave this neglected space a temporary fix. (little did I know just how “temporary” that fix would really turn out to be). After the post was published and I was looking back at the pictures, I quickly realized how much I disliked this room (and not because it was the room that was home to my not-so favorite chore). My intentions were there when I took small steps to decrease the ugliness, but these mini DIY projects were comparable to putting a band-aid on a life threatening wound… not working out too well. I needed more than a band-aid, more like a DIY doctor. *seriouslythough
Allow me to remind you of what the laundry room looked like when we moved in:
Don’t get my wrong, I’m NOT a huge brat that needs all new everything (or anything for that matter). And although I disliked the orange, glossy cabinets, which were actually the cabinets from our house’s original kitchen cabinets, I DID really appreciate the extra storage & their price tag…. FREE! When we moved in, I knew that this room would be on the DIY to-do list.
Fast forward a year & a half:
