one room challenge - laundry room reveal

>> update: you can now see the full reveal here! <<

Wow, I had been ahead of the game for most of the One Room Challenge, but reveal week definitely snuck up on me! It's almost finals week, and if you've been in school for interior design, you know it's full of a whole lot of all nighters. Between working on final projects, an open house presentation of my work, portfolio reviews, program interviews, volunteering, and Charlie being out of town this weekend I had absolutely no time to finish up and style our laundry room. I'm pretty bummed about it, but I figured I would still go ahead and show you the progress we've made over the last six weeks. You can read all about the transformation in these posts.

If you don't remember, this is what our laundry room looked like when we moved into our house.
Here is what it looks like today! Even though it isn't quite complete and I wasn't able to get it styled, I'm still very happy with the progress we've made in just six short weeks. Unfortunately my baskets did not arrive in time, and I didn't have time before shooting to implement plan B, so the shelf is sitting empty for now. 
We used Ikea's new line of Sektion cabinets. These hang on a rail and don't sit completely flush against the wall which gave us a bit of a gap between the backsplash tile and cabinets. We have a small piece of trim to close the gap, it's just waiting for me to paint and install. I've also found some crown molding that will close the gap between the cabinets and ceiling to give the room a finished look.

Things we still have left to do:

  • Install baseboard behind the door
  • Install trim to fill gap between tile and cabinets
  • Install crown molding to fill gap between cabinets and ceiling
  • Install trim to finish washing machine outlet box
  • Install tubular skylight
  • Baskets for shelf
  • Hang hooks
  • Styling
I want to give a big thank you to Linda from Calling it Home for hosting this challenge, and to everyone else for following along and leaving encouraging comments along the way! If I hadn't participated I'm sure our poor laundry room would have sat in its unfinished state for many more months. After my finals are over next week I'll get to work on the finishing touches, so keep an eye out on instagram for the final laundry room reveal, as well as other exciting remodeling projects we have planned for the summer!

Don't forget to check out the 20 amazing transformations that were revealed on Wednesday, and the linking participants sharing their reveals today!

  15. What an amazing transformation! A true job well done. I adore the color palette you selected. It feels fresh and classic. The six weeks went by so fast. I completed our entry, living and dining areas in a new to us 30 year old house. So, cheers to us! Have a wonderful week.

  21. Hi Stacy! Which size of the Hicks Pendent Light is that? Does it give off a good amount of light?

    1. Hi Shauna, we used the small size Hicks Pendant. It gives off enough light for this space, but it definitely wouldn't be enough to adequately light a large room. I hope that helps!
