Alright, The Plan...

Happy Friday!!  What a quick week this was!

I've made a little progress with the laundry room , but its not going quite as fast as I had hoped.  This weekend is not going to be super productive either since we have our nephew's hockey championship game Saturday and a visit from my in laws on Sunday.  Once we get rolling though, it shouldn't be long!

Last time, I threw out two colors I was trying to decide between:

BM Buxton Blue (right) and BM Wedgewood Gray (left):

I really love the Buxton Blue.  Its such a pretty color.  When I put the two next to BM Wickham Gray though, the Wedgewood seemed to go better.  So I picked that one and I think I will save Buxton Blue for my son's big boy room or for our master bath.  We shall see.

Since then I have started to paint, but have only gotten this far:

This was it before I painted the molding:

So, in other words, not very far!  I was finished with most of the trim, but then decided to paint the window.  I have one more coat to do there and then I am done with that part and can finish the blue.

Here are a few pictures to show you the plan for the rest of the room:

There are three things in this picture from Traci's blog Beneath My Heart that will show up in my laundry room.  Can you guess what they are?

Farmhouse Sink

New countertop

See anything in common with these two following pics?

Open shelving:

Some mudroom type storage:
Love this!  Ours will be much smaller scale though...
Maybe these are more realistic:

How about new hardware?  I found these at Target for 75% off!  I like that they are a little oil rubbed bronze and a little silver.  It was exactly what I was looking for.  The sticker says $13.98. but they were really $6.98!  This was just today too, so check your hardware section at Target.  Mine also had Command fasteners, hooks,  and lots of stationary and party supplies at 75% off.

And the part I am most excited about:

My $40 garage sale find last year that has been patiently waiting for our date with a paintbrush.

So there you have it!  A little sneak peek to what I have in mind for my laundry room. 
OK, back to work now!


  1. Love the ideas and can't wait to see it all come together.

  2. I can't wait to see what it looks like when you're finished!

  3. Love the color choice cant wait to see the finished project.

  4. If you're doing B&B I cant wait! My mind has been thinking a lot about doing that lately.

  5. It looks good so far. Looking forward to the finished product. I have to re-do my laundry room soon and you have some great inspiration. What is the material of the counter top you are planning? I am not sure what I will do to replace ours. Thanks!
