One Room Challenge: Week 1

Although I am very new to blogging (can we say about two weeks into it) I came across the One Room Challenge Linking Event and couldn’t wait to be a part of it!

Basically, I have to choose one room in my house to makeover in 6 weeks and document my progress.

I have chosen the laundry room.  The reason is because when we moved into our house a year ago we decided not to pay the upgrade fee to the builder to have this space finished and so today it is a room bare down to the studs!

Other than the obvious (drywall, ceiling, door) I plan to add colour, storage/shelving, functionality and some pretty decor fit for a chic laundry room.

For inspiration I turned to none other than Pinterest.

I love the dramatic dark grey, but the space I’m working with is not that big and doesn’t have a lot of natural sunlight, so naturally I’m leaning towards something light grey, or a fresh sky blue or maybe even a sea foam green.

I like the airy, fresh and clean look–after all is it where you clean your dirty laundry.

So stay tuned and come back every Thursday to see my progress!
