Laundry Makeover Sneak Peek !

Towards the end of renovations , the budget has worn a bit thin. 
So I decided so I can still purchase my "pretties" I would cut out the 
tradies where possible. 
Goodbye Painters !
Hello Paintbrush For Me.

I was going to paint the laundry this colour & wallpaper one wall.
But after coming home 
with paint I thought was the perfect match (but alas wasnt ) , I had a change of mind.
I had painted a large patch on the wall by this time , I realised
even though the laundry is very light , painting a colour & wallpapering was going 
to make it appear smaller...... 
 So out came the white paint
It looks fresh and light , I am using accessories to add colour.

Makes it easy to change the look too, when the fancy takes me.
Just a few more details to go......

We will be ready for the reveal next week !

  1. Love a good reveal, can't wait - happy painting! ;-)

  2. I do love a good laundry! Can't wait to see it..Rachaelxx

  3. I love the white with soft blue accents. I think white walls in a laundry room make it look so fresh and clean. Looking forward to the reveal.

  4. I look forward to the final shots - I know what you mean about things looking smaller, our laundry is mainly white with accents of colour for the same reason.

  5. Looking forward to the reveal Karyn. Good on you for having an open mind and a diy attitude!

  6. Loving the white and can't wait for the reveal...X

  7. Hello......I've just stumbled across your blog and adore it. I am looking forward to seeing how your bathroom ends up xo LouLou

  8. Can't wait to see it finished!

    I've started my own laundry project too. I'm catching up on all the folding and ironing that I've neglected.

  9. Hello hello new BFF hehehe

    Loving your blog the laundry looks gorgeous.

    I'm trying to think of who sells the Deer head - will let you know if I find it. I thought it might be Have You Met Miss Jones but I went to the website and it's not on there.


  10. So pretty already. Love your laundry soap can. My life feels better since we redid our laundry room...does that sound crazy?
