Laundry Room Makeover

Before
After

We have lived in our house for 6 years. We had them paint everything white, because we could not decide on colors. This is the first room that has been paint (I hate painting) except for Marks which use to be orange and now is a beautiful gray. (Did I mention I hate painting Marks room too) I have highlighted the upper case living I put over the shelf. Mom if you are reading this be glad you do not have to put your wall art up on textured walls. As much as I hated painting this room (have i mentioned that already?) I hated putting this thing up even more. This thing gave me a fit, but it's up I love it and my laundry room is the beautiful color of Clear Blue Sky. I love it. I think everyone else is not quite sure yet. I just hope it doesn't look to baby blueish. I need to ask my #1 critic that I know will tell me the truth. (mom)....... I even painted the bird house my sister gave me a long time ago and out it back up on the shelf and Mitch is suppose to be picking me up a new rug.

I would love to have every room a color, bit I sure and heck ain't painting them. I would love to paint my kitchen and light Tuscany color and put tile up at the back splash.

The blue is a really nice shade. It's pleasing to the eyes.

I hate painting too ... I guess that's why only 1/2 of our living room is painted.

Looks great Wendy! I so want to repaint everything already and we just painted 2 years ago and plus I'm with you I HATE PAINTING! Mom had a VERY HARD time with that exact same Laundry Decal, maybe it's that particular decal b/c her walls aren't textured!!! I ask Sandy awhile back if they made some of them up and they sat on the shelf in heat/cold/etc.? She didn't know though. Anyway...your NEW laudry room looks GREAT!

Love the new room and that blue is so pretty!!! How can you hate painting - its so quick and fun to change things in your house with it!

Also love the new header - is it new - I read everything in reader now so I don't always notice stuff changing!!

Personally, my being RED/Green color-blind, I have over the years become an afficionado of Blue. I reviewed the pic of your new laundry room and have decided that is a great shade of blue---its a shade you can live with, not one that you will get tired of quick. You have the "Old Dudes" vote of approval on your wall color.

I think your Laundry Room looks great! I love to paint! My in-laws just did a full house makeover and I help paint until I got pregnant. I really hated missing out on the fun!

I love it, Wendy! I was just looking at those quotes!

We painted our laundry room before we moved in - the same blue as my scraproom. I insisted we paint the entire house prior to moving in - we got most of it done!

I know what you mean about painting, LOL! I used to love it - jumped at every chance to repaint walls, furniture, you name it. But I have since outgrown that! Hate it now, LOL! Absolutely despise it, lol. Too much work, and I'm not as young as I used to be. LOL. Laundry room looks great Wendy!

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the color of your laundry room...not too baby blue either. I don't care for painting walls either...would rather go to the dentist than paint! The saying on the wall is great!
