Thinking Ahead...The Laundry Room...(and a deal to share)

I know, I know...I still haven't finished the bathroom, so why am I already moving on, mentally at least, to the next project?  Isn't that what most of do though?  Always planning our next project, our next THREE projects even?  So that is where I am.  I am moving on, people!  Right now, I am trying to figure out my plan of attack on my laundry room, then my master bedroom and then my stairs and upstairs and downstairs halls.  Oh, and let's not forget that I have a 2 1/2 year old that is going to need a big boy room sooner rather than later.  *sigh*

Look at me, I am already moving past the laundry room...  I need to back up!

Here she is in all her sponge painted glory:

Excuse the mess.  I don't usually store a toilet brush on the counter and have hats and painting supplies strewn all over, but this what it looks like when I have a project going on, like the bathroom and we get a lot of snow.  Supplies and boots and snowpants all over!  With a toilet brush thrown in there for good measure. 

Yes, that's a slipper on my door handle.  I spray painted them a while ago, but we don't have a door stop in this room and I didn't want it to get banged up from everyone flinging the door open all the time.  Hence, its "protected" with a slipper.
Ceiling, I have plans for you and your not so pretty light.
And I hear some  paint calling your name, cabinets!
And a close up of the walls, in case you didn't get enough of them already:

Yes, I have lived with this sponge painting for over two years and yes, I have a few more rooms exactly like this in my house.  Ugh.  I am embarrassed by my laziness or complacency...or whatever you want to call it.  Whatever it is though, it doesn't matter because its all going soon!  Woot!

I'll post again soon with my exact plans for the room, but for now, let me share some of my favorite laundry spaces.  Most have at least one element that I hope to incorporate into mine!  Can you guess which elements?  Or suggest which elements even? ;)

  1. I just might use that snapfish code - thanks!

    I am drooling over that first laundry room. Can't wait to see what you come up with and now I understand your text from earlier : )

  2. I love looking at laundry room pics - don't know why ... maybe because if my laundry room looked like one of those then maybe doing laundry might be, gulp, fun?!

    I have a feeling you like white cabinetry and pale blue walls? I think I'm headed that direction too. It will be amazing how a coat of paint will transform your space .... keep us posted! I need inspiration :o)

  3. Jodi great ideas! I'm planning on a laundry room update too....maybe we should do that together too!!!!HAHA!

  4. Your inspiration pics are gorgeous!
