Inexpensive Laundry Room Makeover

When we bought our house almost 17 years ago it was only 1 1/2 years old. Sadly it was not in the best of shape when we bought it. Over the years we have updated it, fixed things that broke, all the things you do to your home. Then there is my entry way laundry room. This is not a room I spend "quality" time in. I have mostly ignored it, done a few things here and there to better organize it, etc.

Recently I noticed that the cabinets were turning yellow in between the cracks.  It started to annoy me and I decided to give the room a little love - but on a very tight budget.
For my paint - I used Dixie Belle Paint in the colors Hurricane & Fluff.
For my paint - I used Dixie Belle Paint in the colors Hurricane & Fluff.
I painted the edges of the cabinets in the Fluff and the back ledge in the Hurricane.  I also painted the yellowing part of my washer and drier in the Hurricane as well.
Once the paint was dry, I was ready for the cabinets.  I had bought some contact paper online.  I place the contact paper on all the doors and the sides of the cabinet.
When the contact paper was all in place I was ready I put new handles on the cabinets. I also used Polycrylic to coat my Dixie Belle Paint on the ledge in the back.
I added a peel and stick back splash to the laundry sink as well.
I have baskets above my washer and dryer.  I put these up because seems like things were always falling behind the washer and dryer and it added extra storage.  I decided to give them a face lift too by spray painting them with Rustoleum spray paint.
Once those basket dried I put them back up in my laundry room.
I was done in one day and had a fresh new look! Now I need to upgrade my laundry tub and faucet... that'll be next :)

    I really like the remake of your laundry room, GREAT JOB! It would take me three days to do mine , with my MS. If I may ask, Where did you buy your contact paper at and What was the name of the sight? Thank you for showing the pictures stage by stage, it really helps us that are slow now. I HATE THIS DIEASE!

      I have MS. I think that taking care of yourself with sleep, diet, lifestyle changes, doing what your doctors say, etc. can make a big difference in how you can manage the disease. I'm proof of it.

    Beautiful! Have you had any issues with the contact paper of backsplash due to humidity?

      Thank you and great question. I am pleased to say I did this room over a year ago now and it's holding up great. Looks as good as the day I did it :)
