Laundry Room Remodel

I have been wanting to re-decorate my laundry room for a long time. I know it sounds silly, but I spend a lot of time in there. I got part of my motivation from two of my friends who had all boys, so they painted their laundry rooms pink, because that is pretty much the only place they could have pink! My other inspiration was from I'm an Organizing Junkie's Monthly Roundup! I started this project Thanksgiving weekend, but unfortunately, I didn't get it finished that in time to get it up as part of the round up!

So, here is what it looked like before, white and boring, yet very functional.

I caulked and painted the inside of the cabinets as well, so I had to put all of my cleaning and laundry stuff in the pantry until it dried.

I got the first three door done relatively quickly, but since it took 5 coats of red on each door, the last one seemed to linger on. It was like this for almost a month!

And the finished project! I love it!!

The best thing about this project...it didn't cost me any money!!! We had the tan paint because it is the color of our walls. The red is from our kitchen and I had knobs left over from SD's old dresser!
