one room challenge - week three

Welcome back! If you're just now joining me for the One Room Challenge, make sure to check out where we started in week one and week two!

Here is a look at some of the finishing touches that I plan to add to our laundry room. I'm going for a modern coastal sort of vibe in here, and I think this artwork by Susie Bettenhausen is total perfection for this space.

Last Thursday we took out our old flooring and prepped for the new floor.
We started tiling on Friday night, and surprised ourselves by getting the floors tiled and grouted by early Sunday evening, allowing us to have a little bit of time to relax over the weekend.
We put in the new cabinets on Monday and got the door painted and hung by Monday night.
This floor-to-ceiling cabinet is my organizational dream. It holds all of my cleaning supplies perfectly.
We will lower the shelf above the washer and dryer once we tile the backsplash, which we've decided to extend along the back wall (thank you for your input last week!). It looks a little plain now, but once the countertops, backsplash, new hardware, and accessories are installed, it will add much needed texture.
I'm still on the fence about my light fixture situation. The cabinet doors clear our current light by less than 1/2", which makes me a little nervous about my light fixture choice. Right now, moving it isn't an option because we just recently had the walls and ceiling skim coated and I really don't want to mess with repairing the ceiling myself. If the light fixture I chose doesn't work, my plans are to use it in our hallway and convert this to recessed lighting for now. Stay tuned for how this pans out!
As always, don't forget to check out the rest of the linking participants to see the progress they've made, and come back next week when we plan to have baseboards installed, new countertops picked out, and the backsplash started!
