One Room Challenge Week One – The Laundry ‘Room’ Before

Hey there! Yep, that’s right I’m diving into the One Room Challenge again! This will be my fifth time to participate and I’m excited! I guess I’ve done it enough times that it really doesn’t stress me out anymore! Haha! If you’re unfamiliar with the ORC please follow the link and check it out. And then, follow the links at the bottom of the post for loads of decorating and DIY inspiration from all the others participating in the challenge!!
Soooo, this time around I’m tackling our laundry ‘room’. I struggle actually calling it a room, because it’s really more of a pass through between our kitchen and garage with a washer and dryer in it. (The pictures I’m sharing are from the last time I updated the space 5 years ago, and it pretty much looks the same now. For a current situation tour check out my ORC insta story highlights on Instagram. :))

But, it is a room none the less I guess since there are doors on either side closing it off. Right??  😉  Anywho!! I have seen (and pinned) so many darling laundry rooms over the year, and I always think that one of these days when I actually have a ROOM I will do something cute. But, then something inside of me whispers “why wait?” and then here I am.

This happens so often right?? We have this all or nothing mentality and then we end up not enjoying what we’ve been blessed with. I want to make my home a place that my family and I want to come home to. I don’t want this to be a place that is JUST serving our needs until the next better thing comes along.

So, I’m taking our laundry ‘room’ and being brave with some design choices. Doing some things that I might not have the courage to do elsewhere. After all, it’s my laundry ‘room’ and I’m in there more than anyone right?? 🙂

    1. Oh yes, I think having to go to the basement would be less fun than dealing with my tiny pass-through…Thanks for following along Emy!

  1. Hi Denise! Thrilled to see a laundry room makeover during this challenge. I super need a laundry redo. So, of course, i’m looking forward to stealing….I mean….lovingly borrow….LOL…. some of your fab ideas. ~~ Susie from The Chelsea Project

  2. Oooo…I see potential! And YES! You should make that room 100% yours…might as well have pretty things to look at while you’re washing and folding the undies in the house right? LOL!

  3. Good luck on your room transformation. I used to have a laundry room that was a pass through just like that, and I found it a bit annoying, But also convenient being right off the kitchen. Now i have just a laundry closet. So i’m not sure which i prefer. But i can’t wait to see what you do here!

    1. Thanks Nicki! I do love the convenient location, I just wish it were a little bigger sometimes. 🙂 But, I’m going to do my best to make it a space I enjoy!
