May 16, 2012 in Making our House a Home
Our 1970s home does not have a laundry room….just this “nook” in the den.I had been oogling over some other blogger’s laundry room makeovers and decided I might as well make the best of what I’ve got…its’ just a nook, but it could be a cuter nook:)My budget for this project was $0…and I am proud to say I was able to stick to it:) Using drywall leftover from our bathroom renovation, we were able to frame in and add a ceiling and a new wall to the right of the washer. Here it is before:–…and now after:-(The texture on the walls was accomplished using wadded up plastic sacks:)
For the decor, we just hung some single socks from cloths pins and used some scrap wood from our bed project to make this sign……and this shelf:I wanted a sort of ransom note look for the sign, so I used a bunch of mismatched letter stickers for the lettering:I painted over the stickers……and when I removed them, it looked like this:After a bit of touch-up paint and some glazing, it looked like this:So there you have it…a simple, cheap laundry nook makeover.
BEFORE:and AFTER: (P.S. This is my home in Colorado, not the one we just moved to in Nebraska…for the next few weeks I’ll be sharing pictures from all of these projects we finished just before moving…THEN I’ll switch gears to sharing our before pictures and plans for the new home.)
