One Room Challenge Week Two

1.25.2012

After my first post on The One Room Challenge, Beth, at Chinoiserie Chic, had fabulous suggestions for my room.  How I wish I could just copy her ideas!  What a lovely laundry room I'd have!  I should have explained some parameters in my first post.  First, we have a crazily large (20 pound) cat that has the run of the room and jumps all over the washing machine and dryer to get away from the 5 pound dog.  So, obviously I can't have anything breakable.  Also, the ceilings in that room are only 8.6 feet high.  With my husband being 6.2 and me at 5.10, that eliminates cute lantern options.  And, I'm in the middle of the more important project of my daughter's bedroom.  The laundry room is going to have to be more of a "Design on a Dime" project.  However, with those limitations, I'm determined to have a finished room that we'll enjoy in just a few weeks.  

The built-in ironing board that we never used is gone, so that's some progress!  I'll have more for you to see next week.  Please be sure to check out the other ladies who have lots of interesting things to report.  Their links are all at the end of the post.






Yea!  It's gone!  The paint's still wet.

Now you see it, now you don't! Nice job, I know it takes a lot of work to make it look like nothing happened at all. Very nice! What's up next?

Good job! Did you patch that yourself? I'm impressed!

I was never a fan of the built-in ironing board. My husband wants to put one in our laundry room eventually. Yah, nice try buddy. That's not happening. Your room is looking better already!

I'd love to be able to have done this myself, but no. I wouldn't know where to begin!

i know, i know....when you don't like those 'in the wall' irons....
they are an eye sore.

but i have always wanted one in my closet.
my mum has one in her laundry room.

the BLUE is beautiful.

You found the ideal solution- get rid of the thing!! As a woman who is 5'10 with a taller husband I completely understand your height considerations in the room! Loving all the blue!

That is great progress!

I agree, Beth had some great ideas, especially that fun chinese laundry wallpaper. Yay for the useless ironing board being gone!

Jadyn @ Dutch.British.Love said...

Good job!! Getting things like that done are so satisfying! I look forward to seeing what you do next week!

We had one of those growing up. I didn't realize how ugly it was at the time, covered in red floral wallpaper in the kitchen. Wowza!
