In my last post I showed you my new washer and dryer…they really inspired me to re-do my dungeon like laundry room. I had no intention of getting myself into a full fledged makeover, until we bought the new washer and dryer….but now I’m SO glad I did!
Like I said in my last post…the only thing in this picture that’s in my laundry room now is the little white trash can, everything else is GONE! (oh and the wire baskets…those were too cute to get rid of!)
I love my new washer and dryer…
but I couldn’t exactly design a room from them, so I started looking for design inspiration. I found some amazing pictures on the web and started getting an idea of where I wanted to go with this room.
Here are some of the photos I used for inspiration……
BUT the BIGGEST inspiration for my room was these….
Ok, do you notice a theme running in these pictures??
They are all a pale aqua! For all my long time readers, you will absolutely be amazed that I didn’t put any pink in this room!!
You guys are probably saying, “who are you and what have you done with Missy”?! (of course, that could change….maybe some accent color in pink?? hmm…) lol
I just fell head over heels in love with this aqua color when I found all the pictures on the web and a bunch of the ball jars at my local peddlers mall. If you’d like to see some more of the photos I used for inspiration, you can follow my boards on Pinterest….go HERE to see.
Ok…here’s the paint color I chose to use on the walls…are you ready?….
It’s called Tropical Mist, but it’s really a pale aqua…
I had it mixed at Lowes using their Valspar paint, interior eggshell finish. Please tell me I’m not the only one whose paint can looks like this after I paint…… :)
Here’s the wall with one very thin coat…I promise it looks SO much deeper and more beautiful after about three coats!
This room is so stinkin’ hard to take pictures in…there’s no windows and very little light…but I’m taking care of that eventually, so bear with me and my dark photos..it does get better!
See, here’s the wall with another coat…it gets prettier with each one! (and it still doesn’t have all the coats on it yet!)
Stay tuned to my next post and you’ll find out what I’m doing with that piece of wood up on the wall! Any guesses?
See ya soon!
