Our laundry room was plain. Lacking in color, simply a sea of white. White walls, white cabinets, white door....made complete with a white washer and dryer. My goal with this Breath of Fresh Erin project was to make the laundry room FUN. Loads of fun.
Although white is a clean color and very fitting for a laundry room, I was looking for something bright and cheery. As you can see in the before pictures, I jumped the gun and began testing out a coral color on the walls before remembering to take a BEFORE photo...but you can still see the overabundance of white!

Now, please take a look at these high sliding cabinets in our laundry room. I am not sure the rationale behind these cabinets because in order to reach them you had to stand on the washer/dryer...not very functional if you ask me!! I was determined to give these cabinets purpose and lucky for me the boards were not made of real wood. I was able to take them out by easily snapping the boards in half. Within minutes, I said good bye ugly boards and hello little nook.

I love the coral cubbyhole paired with the light apple green walls, but by far my favorite part of the laundry room make-over is the charming floral chandelier. It's a bit feminine (obvi) which required LOTS of convincing with Clay. After a long discussion and promising him I would do his laundry for the rest of our lives, the lovely light fixture made it's way into our laundry room! A beautiful victory if I may say so myself!

Laundry is not my favorite thing to do, however this re-do has definitely made doing our laundry a bit more pleasant!
