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.
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.

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.

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