Laundry/Utility Room Makeover!

For months now I have planned on decorating my laundry/utility room. Yes, I wanted to "decorate" a laundry room. Laundry room needs love too! When I moved in my house it was one of the three rooms I did not re-paint, so it was bare and bland. And you may remember from here when I bought these:

Well, I had a few days {6 to be exact!} and I FINALLY got around to picking out a paint color and actually getting this project done! YAY! You should have seen me in Lowes. I stood in front of the color cards FORRREEVVVVERR. I felt like I was making a huge life decision and life commitment. Once the cute little man with gray hair behind the counter punches the code designated to my color and all the colors drip into the can of pure white paint mix to make my color, there's no turning back. I can't return it if I don't like it...so I have to be sure I'm going to like it! After I chose a color I came right home and got a' paintin'! 


Color: Valspar from Lowes, Smoked Oyster
Baskets: Home Goods $12-$15 each
Pins: Ballard Design $35 for all 3

My friend Jen got me the "Believe" sign for Christmas and I had originally planned to set it on my shelf in my living room, but it is too big. So, this is the perfect place. 

After spending so much time deciding on the color, I'm glad I did, because I'm absolutely in love with it! I want to paint my bathroom and the stairway/upstairs hall the same color! Now I just need to find the energy to do it!


  1. Did you paint the whole laundry room your self? I know nothing about painting walls of houses was it hard?

  2. It looks so good! I love it. Such a great color for the laundry room and the baskets are a great touch. xox
