Laundry Room Reveal!

Here is what it looked like when we moved in 
(and it pretty much stayed this way for 3 years!)

I've always wanted to decorate a girls room and use a little pink, 
since this is the only "girls room" in the house I seized the opportunity!
I love it!

****UPDATE I recently added corbels to the shelves (as pictured above),
 click HERE to see more :)

Love my built-in hamper!

Here are the sources:
For more on the painted "chevron" wall treatment click here
The grey paint color is "storm" by Benjamin Moore
The Pink fabric on the back of the chair and the back of the shelf can be found here
The Turquoise fabric on the bulletin board can be found here
I found the bulletin board at a thrift store and using spray adhesive attached the fabric then trimmed out the edges with a roll of nailhead trim.  I followed this tutorial.

The pink rug, laundry baskets, small silver clock, and numbered hook wall plaque  I found at TJ Maxx
The pink/orange vases on the desk were clearance items at Target
The grey angel wing candle holder, 3 tree topiaries, and small green wreath are from Taipan
The small grey urn above the washer is from Kneaders
For more about the large safety pins on the wall click here
The cabinet hardware is from Hobby Lobby
The frames above the washer and dryer were ones I had in storage
The frame on the desk is from Home Goods
The brass "service bell" is from World Market
The desk lamp tutorial can be found here
The brown sewing machine cabinet was made by my Father and I am the lucky one to get it!
And Finally-
The fabulous pink and turquoise books on the shelves were FREE!!!!!!  From Re-Store - Did you know they give away their books for FREE!!!!!  I was so excited to find that out!  Not a great selection but hey you can't beat the price.  I did pay a few bucks for some additional books at a thrift store.


  1. You did a beautiful job in your laundry room… It looks amazing!

  2. Love the cabinets. Where did you get them?

  3. Amy, your laundry room looks SO good! It doesn't even look like a laundry room - in a good way :). I really love the chevron pattern and the paint color. I'd love to feature this on my paint color blog, Involving Color. Let me know if you're interested!

    1. Thanks Jena! You are welcome to feature it on your blog. Thanks again!

  4. Amy this room is beautiful! What a great combination of colors and function. The cabinets make such a difference! I found this from Involving Color. Glad to have found your blog :-)

  5. How did you attach the fabric to the back of the bookshelf?

    1. I sewed it to the correct dimensions then used a dot of hot glue in each corner and at the top of the middle point. I'm hoping it will remove easily one day?!

  6. What is it your washer and dryer are sitting on? it looks like a tray of some kind?

    1. Yes it is a tray- I'm sorry I don't know anything about it though as it was installed before we moved in by the construction workers.
