Laundry Room update

I've gone crazy with my paint brush.  I've been painting everything that doesn't move.  Hubs is afraid to sit down because I might paint him!

My utility room has been in sorry shape ever since we moved in.  The cabinets match the ones in my kitchen (sniff sniff) and they're all a little wonky.

I had already started taking the doors off the cabinets when I remembered to snap a pic

Please don't mind the dirty towels waiting to be washed.  You see, everything has to wait when I get the painting gleam in my eyes.

I painted the cabinets, inside and out, with semi-gloss Cottonwood paint.  Painting the inside has made me more cheerful when doing laundry.  Something about a light and bright cabinet interior makes me happy. 

As you can see, I traded the dirty towels for my cast iron fry pan.  Not sure what's up with that!

If you look carefully, you'll notice the wall behind the washer & dryer has changed too.  Actually all of the walls have changed.  I wallpapered them with beadboard wallpaper and now I've  painted them.  I told you I had the painting gleam! 

I'll finish up this room today and post the final results on Thursday.  Right now I need to wash the paint streaks out of my hair. 


  1. Oh my gosh, what a difference. The cupboards look fabulous. Just amazing the difference and I love the beadboard. Can't wait to see if all!

  2. The second Suzanne to comment! What a difference. I can understand why you love it so much more. I NEED some cabinets in my laundry room!!!


  3. That beadboard wallpaper is some good stuff! I'm going to use it when I get around to re-doing my kitchen. I'm diggin' your newly painted cabinets :-)

  4. This is a dramatic change... so fresh!!!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
