One Room Challenge Fall 2014: Week 5 Counting Down!

Good Morning Ya’ll!
One Room Challenge at  Join me for a 6 week Laundry Room Makeover

If you’re still following along on my ORC, I want to say a big heartfelt thank you! They’re definitely not posts that are filled with the most beautiful pictures or with mouthwatering recipes, but thank you for bearing with me while we give our laundry room a huge facelift. It seriously needed it!

You can read all about week 1, week 2, week 3 and week 4 in my previous posts. Next week will be the big reveal! By the looks of things, I’ll be wanting to do laundry every day! I am loving how bright and organized it’s feeling already!

This week my husband painted the walls in the laundry room and said goodbye to good ole’ beige. I didn’t mind the beige too, too terribly but since we were doing a makeover I wanted to lighten it up with grey. But nobody ever told me how hard it would be to choose a grey I’d love. Maybe it’s the red washer and dryer, but when I came home and my husband had it painted I almost fell back! It looked sooo purplish/bluish. And trust me, I’m not a fan of either. I seriously couldn’t believe it was the same paint I chose. We went immediately to our second home Home Depot and looked for a grey we like. The girl in the paint department was so helpful and showed us how many shades of grey have tones of blues and reds added.  We decided to leave it a few days and it seemed to lighten up and now looks more like grey! Whew! The baseboards still need painted and the linoleum will hopefully be replaced this winter.

    Can’t wait for the final reveal!! I know what you mean about picking out paint colors (especially greys…why are there SO many shades of grey?) I have a tiny laundry room and I just remember how hard it was to paint behind the washer and dryer. I had to get into the weirdest positions to reach everything! Lol! I love your baskets! Michael’s is the BEST for finding cute, functional baskets!
