Wow, that's amazing! I would even love to do laundry in there and I hate doing laundry. Mine is in my basement which I have to go outside to get to and its yucky down there. :-( I want a laundry room like that!!!

A Vintage Green said...

I've been waiting for this reveal. Nice treat for a Saturday morning. I'll be checking the 'back links' to see the progress again.

Fairfield House said...

Missy,

Your laundry room looks spectacular! Love your solution to hide the furnace. Beautiful job and now looks up to par with the rest of your lovely home. I am putting this in my inspiration folder. However, my ideal laundry room will feature a wet bar that specializes in martinis. hehehe

Your Friend,
Deborah

Sissi said...

I love your laundry room makeover! I completely understand wanting to sleep in there! My favorite part is how you used neutrals for everything and then put in accents with the blues. Easy to change if the mood strikes! Bravo!

Cindy said...

GASP! It's unbelievable! Absolutely amazingly crazy cute now! I love your dark floors too, they just make it, especially with the white and blue... and well, everything... i can't believe how charming this little laundry room is now..

Connie@Connie Nikiforoff Designs said...

Totally love it! Our laundry room/furnace room is in the basement and I've always said I don't "need" it to be looking nice since I use it as a sort of "fix stuff in here when the weather's bad outside" room. But your laundry room is making me lean towards doing up our room nicer! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Jenny said...

FAB-U-LOUS!!!!! I love it Missy! You are just a clever, clever girl, with the classiest laundry ever!
Hugs!
Jen xo

Gail said...

WoW! It doesn't look like the same room. I love it. Gail

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

Stopping by from Met Monday... Your laundry room makeover is fantastic! I'm going to check out your previous posts. I do LOTS of vintage linens laundry, so a laundry room that's nice to look at is a must! Yours is a pleasure to use, I'm sure.

I'm having a Vintage Linen & Dish Auction soon. I hope you'll stop by and check out more details on my sidebar - then save the date!

Lisa said...

Came across your post from Thrifty Decor on Twitter, what a beautiful laundry room! I am so impressed you created it all by yourself, well done, it's beautiful!! Off to discover the rest of your blog...

Toni said...

Wow! I love it! Can you please tell me the paint color? I'm looking for something similar for my bathroom and laundry room. Love how everything looks - so relaxing. I want to remodel my laundry room now. Thanks for sharing!

Tricia said...

Wow! Now that is a before and after! That room would make ME want to do laundry. That dresser was made for that room. It all looks fabulous!

Stampin with Gina said...

I absolutely love it. I want to decorate mine now!!!!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Hi Missy,

Your laundry room is so pretty now! I too would enjoy doing laundry in such a space.
Love the colors you selected and wow do those stackables give you so much more room.

The interior designer in me has to ask a question in the name of safety. Is the fabric that you used to cover the furnace flame resistant?

Sorry to be Debby Downer but I would hate for your space to go poof!

bamascrapper said...

Love this!!! Beautiful!!

My Cottage Charm said...

To answer a couple of questions. :)
1. paint color is Tropical Mist from Lowes.
2. Laura, the curtain didn't have to be flame resistant because that unity doesn't get hot at all...it's more of a return thingy. It has one pipe on the other side, that gets warm, but there's nothing anywhere near it. Thanks for looking out for my safety though, I appreciate it! :)

My Cottage Charm said...

oops..meant to say unit doesn't get hot..not unity! lol :)

Jennifer said...

WOW! I love this! I love your cabinets, counter and shelves! Very nice. Maybe I need to re-do my laundry room?
Jen

Deb @ RoomscapesDecor.com said...

Beautiful. I'll be checking back to see how you did those silhouettes.

Melissa said...

This is gorgeous! I love all the refurbishing! I featured it here @ my Storage Geek blog.

Pamela said...

OMG how beautiful! I love the blue counter top!! It is all just lovely and I would want to do laundry every day!

House Envy said...

Wow! That is beautiful!

Catherine said...

I want.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.

BluBabesCreate said...

Madigan at madiganmade said...

Oh man. I wish I had the space to have a cute laundry space like this!! Darling details! Love the curtains, the dresser, the chandy, the board and batten... ok, I'll stop now. :D

stefanie said...

thanks for the sweet comment, I got the wallpaper at home depot, it was on clearance but you can check the books they have.

Tonya said...

Missy, your laundry room turned out GORGEOUS!! Love every last detail!! Including the curtain to hide the furnace!! I am getting ready to do the same thing in my laundry room as well. I need to hide the furnace & the water heater! Would love to see how you hung the curtains!

Heather@The Black's Best said...

Can a laundry room be beautiful? Yours definitely is...I especially love the chandelier and am drooling over everything. I might even catch up on my laundry if I had a room like this to do it in!

Simone said...

I cant believe I have only just seen your blog! I absolutely adore what you have done with your laundry. I wish I had a proper laundry room so I coul do something nice like that!

I have just become a follower, I cant wait to see what else you have :)

Pamela said...

That is absolutely GORGEOUS! Can't wait for your wall redo post because there's so many ways to do that style, but I'd love to hear how you did it!

Question, was the make over thrift or budget pushing?!

Just gorgeous, well done!

Courtney said...

Ok.. I have a furnace in my laundry room, too. AND a hot water tank. What is your ceiling like in there? We have nothing because of all the plumbing and ductwork running through there. It's almost beyond help. Yours looks amazing, though!

My Cottage Charm said...

Hey Courtney....I have another post on the laundry room that shows the ceiling etc..here's a link :)
