A Sneak Peek. . .

. . .at my laundry room! The laundry room makeover has begun! I've already hit a couple of snags, but I am happy to say that progress is being made. I knew I wanted green walls so I went to Lowe's and picked out an Apple green color that was bright and vibrant. My laundry room is very tiny and windowless so my goal was to try and make it a brighter room using paint. I bought one of those little sample jars of paint (love those!) and ran home to slap it on the walls! Well, to my horror, it was more of a fluorescent lime green. Horrible!!! Not at all what I was aiming for. So back to Lowe's to pick out a more toned down green. This time I chose Valspar's Garden Hedge. I. Love. It!!! I am kind of leaning towards a garden theme for this room so it's a bit ironic that my paint color should have a garden themed name, don't you think?

Here's a few pictures of what I've got going on so far. There's still a very long way to go. Hubby is going to install a couple of cabinets for me for some much needed storage. We haven't purchased those yet. He's been working so much overtime at his new job (which is a good thing for the paycheck!) that he hasn't had much spare time to work on his "honey do" list. But I am not on any set schedule to finish this room, so we will get there when we get there.

Paint going on the wall. Yay!!

A peek at the new flooring:

And a couple of decorative elements that may find their way to a new home in here:

So that's what I've been working on this weekend. Have you started any home improvement projects yet this year?

Until next time. . .


  1. Donna I love the Green.. Its hard sometimes to imagine how Greens are gona look on the wal until you actually paint them...then as with you it's an oh good Lord I hate that... Been there done that with Greens!

    the Garden color is awesome because it can go with so many different colors..

    Have fun decorating it when you're all done painting!!


  2. Donna, I love the green color you chose. Green is a calming color. Can't wait to see the room all put together.
    Country at heart

  3. O'Donna, it's looking GREAT! Love the new green you've chosen. You're going to love to do laundry when you're all done with this make-over.

  4. That is a great green! Is it almost like a sage? And I love, love, love that flooring!! That will look awesome! Love the 'garden theme' idea. I have that in my living room, and you can find alot of fun items in 'garden theme'. Can't wait to see the continued progress!
