We are going to be hanging a large art installment that will not only serve as a box for those cords but also the color element–I got a pretty good idea of what I’m gonna be doing. As you can see from the photo above, we have a lot of other plans for this room before our big party next week. We probably won’t have time to redo the floors before next Friday, but I am certain I can improve them. The other projects are pretty straightforward (we hope) and budget-friendly. You’ll be seeing a lot more of this little laundry room over the next week through all the tweaks.
Magic, leftover paint from the basement and about 2 hours. Getting the wallpaper border off was pie. The walls in the laundry room are very textured, which isn’t close to ideal to start with, so the paper was already pealing in some places. I just sprayed it down with water and scraped it off a minute later. A 30 minute job. Thank goodness. Painting this room was actually harder than most rooms. Constantly shifting the washer and dryer to paint around them was not fun and painting around toilets is definitely not pleasant. Add super textured walls to the equation and I was ready for a nap after what I thought was gonna be an easy and quick task (instead of a nap, Chris and I prepped the floors in the basement). Deciding on a light gray was a no-brainer. This room has no windows and we had leftover paint. We do have big plans to inject some bold color in this room though–and it has something to do with all those cords hangin’ out on the left.
