Laundry room before and after

Here’s a quick transformation of my parents laundry room. Total cost less than $60.

The one requirement my mom had was that she wanted the room to be light and bright… So the first thing I did was paint a dark blue wall, I love to make her nervous and also to show how dark walls don’t always mean a room will feel small and dark!

Next, I hand painted the palm leaf ‘wallpaper’ with regular wall paint we had on hand and switched out the curtain for macrame.

Behind the washer and dryer I hung up cedar planks and switched out the cupboard hardware.

A few affordable changes that made a huge impact.

Flamingo Dining Room

I often reminisce about the homes we used to live in and realized that one of the best transformations we’ve worked on was never documented on here!

So here it is:

Our old home in Portland, Oregon had a small room in the back of the house that was meant to be a laundry room. It was dark, dingy and a complete waste of space. We decided to turn it into a combo laundry and dining nook. Tim and I (with the help of a few friends) did all the work ourselves.

The first thing we did was replace the solid door with glass french doors to let in more light.

We moved the washer/dryer to one side of the room, stacked it, and installed sound muffling doors. Lastly, we laid down new bamboo flooring.

I painted the whole room dark green, hand painted the flamingo wall and voila, a whole new room.
