We've been a little side-tracked with Spring Break, a few weddings, another "room" makeover project (more to come on that later), and life. My husband put the cabinet pulls on the lower cabinets for me and installed the chandelier (from Ikea for under $40!) I knew I wanted a simple black chandelier, but the black crystal one that I loved was ridulously priced, and this is a room of functionality and practicality. I added vinyl on the trashcan and did a simple vinyl above the drying rack as well. More cabinetry is still to come! (Here was the previous post on our laundry room makeover.)

Our laundry room has become a place for things that don't have a "home" elsewhere in our house. (Chairs, candles, framed art, etc.) It was making me absolutely crazy. At one point, our Great Dane's crate was housed in our laundry room as well. As you can imagine, it took up a great deal of space. Once we moved her to an extra extra large crate, the extra large one in the laundry room was taken out. I was inspired to finally make good use of the laundry room...for...can you believe it: LAUNDRY! I never took true "before" pictures. Previously, the refridgerator and the dog crate were on the opposite wall from the washer and dryer. When the crate came down, we moved the refridgerator next to the dryer. This opened up an entire wall for cabinetry, folding area, and shelving.
Here are the earliest "Before" pictures that I have.
I painted the walls with Behr Enamel paint in "Sunporch" yellow.here.
