Happy Friday! I know I haven’t been sharing a lot on our progress lately. It’s because both of our current projects, the mudroom and the Master Bath have looked like a bomb exploded recently.
If you remember, this is where we started when we purchased the house:
Yep, there were two types of flooring in that room. We think that there was a renovation in the early 90s and that there used to be a wall where the flooring changes.
When we moved in, we did a mini update with slate-esque (aka porcelain faked out to look like slate) flooring and changed up the wall color. In my defense, it was very buttery yellow in the store. On the walls, it was the opposite of buttery = NEON.
Then it pretty much stayed the same for a year, until we bought some a new washer and dryer and I begged and pleaded for mutually decided that it needed another facelift. We added beadboard and changed the wall color again. Last week we FINALLY changed up the light fixture:
Fun, right? It’s a Home Depot light fixture that was all white and I spray painted the top. The bottom is still white. It was $50 which I thought was expensive, but it was exactly what I was looking for.
My husband has spent his free time over the past week or so building our new bench. I don’t think he minded too much because he was able to put his new nail gun to good use (that he got for his birthday):
with storage for sorting laundry:
Awesome right? I’m kind of excited about getting rid of the laundry basket full of dirty clothes that sits on top of the washer and dryer.
The sides will be painted to match the Linen White on the walls and the top is going to be stained dark, but that’s after some serious putting and wood filler. Here’s where the room stands now:
John is going to work on the shelf over the bench next, but I think we’re getting a lot closer to our inspiration picture:
We saw this picture and realized that it’s really the same setup as what we have in our room.
Any fun plans for the weekend? I’m going to my niece’s dance recital tonight and yard sale-ing in the morning. Wish me luck! I hope I find some good stuff. I haven’t had too much luck at the yard sales this year.
