Welcome to week six, this is the final week and the one where you get to the finished space. Don’t worry, I have included the after photos at the top of this post incase that is all you are here for. When I initially enrolled to be a guest participant for the One Room Challenge I felt totally overwhelmed and like I may had gotten myself way in over my head. Turns out it was the exact push I needed to complete this project in a timely manner and step outside of my DIY box a little bit. I have loved every second of creating this space and I am so thankful for my brother in-law and husband for helping me bring it to life. Also huge shoutout to MuralsWallpaper for providing the incredible wallpaper for the feature wall.If you’ve been following a long from the beginning you know this space really needed a face lift and more functionality. I believe it’s totally gotten that and more. If you haven’t already be sure to check out the other guest participants and the featured designers of the Fall ORC 2020.

Before we do anything else, let’s remind ourselves of where we started just 6 short weeks ago. It definetly wasn’t horrible and I am so thankful that we have a laundry room because I totally know what it’s like not to, but this space has been calling my name. I am not an open cabinet kind of girl, they are stunning but I need to shut some doors and forget about whats behind it, you feel me? This one shelf situation wasn’t cutting it for me.
The tile work is probably one of my favorite things about this space now. It gives it such a wow factor and beats that ugly yellow toned vinyl any day. Again, huge shoutout to my brother in-law (Great Granite) for cutting and laying this beautiful 11-inch Hex tile for me. The Turkish rug is from URBANRUG and the dog bowls are from Tjmax.
I really wanted an alternative to the old hook rack that we had. There was very limited space and I was constantly having to take multiple things off to get to what I wanted. I had considered doing a board and batten wall here with hooks at the top but decided against it. I am thrilled with how our oversized DIY peg boards turned out. You can find the full tutorial here. I like that I can add ad many shelves or pegs as I need and move it around at any time. The natural wood accent pairs so well with the light colored cabinets. Wall color: Sherwin Williams Urban Bronze.
This feature wall with MuralsWallpaper was a learning process for sure but the outcome made it so worth it. I love that this wall always catches my attention when I am in the kitchen or walking in through the entry way. The framed Kanye art was created by Bold Goods.
I was so inspired by Vanessa Francis’s pink board and batten wall in her laundry room I knew I needed to bring that color to this space. Like I said I am so glad I went with my original plan and stuck with the pink cabinetry. The gold accents were a last minute touch that I think really gave it that finishing touch that the space needed. Cabinetry hardware is from Lowes.
The modern minimalist labels are from an Etsy shop called RealandVibrant. They turned out so good and can be customized however you would like. The amber bottles were a must have, I seen them at a boutique in Dallas but they were pretty pricey so I found some much more affordable ones on Amazon (ill link them below). Cabinets are IKEA and the color is Sherwin Williams – Oleander (SW 6603).
I repainted all the walls in this space including a fresh coat on the ceiling to give it that fresh clean look.
I truly had so much fun designing and putting this laundry room together. I cannot wait to participate in the next One Room Challenge. Thank you so much for this opportunity Better Homes & Gardens and the One Room Challenge.
