Small Laundry Room Makeover

Small Laundry Room Makeover

Before and After, Building, DIY & Crafts

One of my biggest pet peeves is hauling laundry all over the house, so I fixed that with our new home! This was supposed to be my oldest daughter’s bathroom. Instead, I turned my other daughter’s bathroom into a Jack and Jill bathroom my girls now share. Thankfully, that opened up this space for a small laundry room… and no more hauling laundry across the house!! 

Here is what it looked like before. Let’s see how I transformed this space!

Adding Wainscoting and Paint

First, I added wainscoting. The battens that go up and down are 1 1/2″ MDF. I spaced them 6″ apart from each other. The top piece is a pre-made header that I bought from Colonial Building Supply, a local hardware store.

I used my Ryobi brad nailer to attach these to the wall. After everything was attached I used putty to fill the holes and then Lighthouse caulk to caulk all of the seams. I then taped everything off and used my HomeRight sprayer to spray everything in Chalk White by Benjamin Moore.

Adding Wallpaper

Next, I applied the wallpaper. Since this wasn’t as big of an area I went a little more bold with the pattern. This wallpaper was super easy to apply. It came with the glue that I applied straight to the wall and then placed the wallpaper over the top. I applied everything within an hour.

Accessorizing

Now to accessorize! I got this shelf from Shelfology, you can view the exact shelf here. Once the shelf was up I added some baskets to hold all the random laundry stuff. In the small grey basket I put the laundry sheets so they could easily be grabbed.

The large ombre seagrass basket is for dirty clothes and the smaller baskets have the laundry detergent and washer cleaner in them. Shop similar accessories here.

I then added some greenery and that fun vase to top it off!!
