So, it's week three of The One Room Challenge. If you're coming in new, I'm involved in a challenge with a group of bloggers to finish a room in six weeks. The room I've chosen to finish is my laundry room. I'm making progress, but it's slow. I'm going to have to make some things happen quickly to finish everything in three weeks!
The built-in ironing board that was never used is gone.
Lots of blank, blue wall now.
This fan is gone.
I wanted a ceiling fixture that wouldn't make me feel claustrophobic like the fan did. The ceilings in the room are only eight and a half feet. My husband installed this IKEA fixture. I like the fixture a lot and it's only $15. Also, it's something my husband can handle installing. It's not going to work, though. It doesn't create enough light. At night the room is not nearly bright enough. I like lots of light. I think what we need is to have the electrician come install a couple of can lights.
This is the side door from the driveway into the house. It's the door we always use. When you walk into the house here, the laundry room is what you see if you look into the room on the right. Specifically, you see the wall below.
This project is what I'm most looking forward to having completed. It's what we see all the time, and it will be such an improvement not to look at the built-in ironing board or a blank wall.
And here is the reason I can't have cute accessories like garden stools in the room. No breakables with the 20 pound cat!
Be sure to visit the other participants in the challenge. They have lots of interesting progress to share.
