Luxuriously Lavender Laundry/Mud Room
The cabinet to the right of the washer/drier and above the wash tub was a dark wood tone before I painted it. I also spray painted the gold hardware with silver. The striped boxes above the cabinet house my sewing supplies. Since my sewing machine matches this room, I decided to display it. I only use it a few times per year, so this works for me! I have travertine tiles left over from our kitchen back splash, so I would like to use them up under this cabinet. I also think it would be a neat detail to add corbels to the bottom of the cupboard.
The shelf above the laundry machines was a free basement find. I painted it to breath new life into it. The mail organizer has been a life saver in this space. No more piles! This was purchased on clearance at Marshall's/HomeGoods.
The framed poster was leftover from my college dorm days. Funny how the Eiffel tower never goes out of style.
For now, this space also functions as a diaper changing station. Hopefully my twins will be done with diapers soon. Maybe someday I can add add a counter top surface here?
The towel hook near the sink is new as well. When we purchased this house there were not any towel holders in any of the bathrooms or other spaces. Strange, I find them essential.
A full length mirror was added to hopefully avoid leaving the house with two different shoes or worse.
The two framed tissue paper collage pieces were done by my 2.5 year old twins. Such treasures!
