First, thank you for all the well-wishes on Chris’s behalf. His back surgery went perfectly, and while he has a pretty strict recovery regimen for the next 12 weeks, he already feels worlds better. We’re so happy and feel the love you’ve been sending our way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Today I wanted to share the mood board I created along with our friends, the Pugmires, for their laundry space. You can check out Monday’s post here if you missed the scoop on this project. Ace Hardware threw in $250 that till go toward drywall, tape, mud, texture, paint, and shelving (like you see in #5 below) and we were given $500 to spend at Wayfair so that naturally became the budget for decorating the blank space (baby). It was a blast working with them to find pieces that reflect their style–which is pretty in line with my style–and things that they were just so excited to have that I wouldn’t have ever thought of. To my pleasant surprise, we stttreeettttched that $500 into a pretty legit budget-friendly laundry room. Here’s how it looks in mood board form:
The biggest thing I learned when putting this mood board together on a budget was know when to splurge and save–and be willing to do both! The woven shelf basket was as much money as the pretty red stool, but will add an undeniable richness to the setting. Natural fiber rugs, like this 6′ round jute one, are a great way to save (it’s $119 I think) while layering in lots of texture. The sheepskin might not be necessary, so it is a bit of a splurge, but Corine absolutely lit up when we came across it–totally worth squeezing it into the budget!
Things have already started rolling in from Wayfair, the Pugmires purchased some beautiful laminate flooring and walls are up and ready for paint–so I definitely owe you an on-site update.
