Budget Laundry Room Makeover and Reveal

I spend a lot of time doing laundry, so I wanted to create a more cheerful space.
The last couple of months I spent my free time working in the laundry room. Lots of painting, cleaning and organizing.
When we first moved into our home I painted the walls blue and added a bench for storage. Since then we added 2 more dogs to our family and while they were puppies they chewed everything in sight; including our chair, storage bench, baskets, floor and walls. It was that bad!! With so much to do in the house, over the years our laundry room took a backseat to other projects.
Eventually my dogs out grew puppyhood and stopped chewing. So it was time to give our laundry room a proper makeover.
The walls are painted Revere Pewter, by Benjamin Moore matched to Glidden Paint.
The Roman shade remained, but I switched out the pillow case curtains.
I added simple clip rings so I could open and close the curtains with ease.
Plants are a great addition to any room.
Art and frames are from Ikea.
We choose vinyl flooring with a wood grain pattern from Home Depot.
Having 3 dogs with muddy paws I needed something that was easy to keep clean.
We've had it in place for a few years and I love it.
The water heater is stored in the closet.
I couldn't wait to give this door a makeover. It took me a time long to settle on a color. In the end I chose Sherwin Williams, Outer Space matched to Glidden Paint. It feels so much fresher. The perfect accent to the neutral walls.
This door opens to our back yard.
It was also time for a new light. I wanted something clean and simple. This fixture fit my style perfectly.
I love the idea of open shelving. The double shelves add so much extra storage space.
Paint really livened our laundry room up. I enjoy having such a bright space to do chores.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
