Hello, fellow cottage style-fans! Boy have I got a fun makeover to share with you today! 😀
Just before Christmas, my e-friend Kristine (who lives in Australia and blogs at The Painted Hive) was asked to participate in a room refresh competition for Angie’s List. She had five-ish days and $500 to transform her parent’s laundry room, and I just love the way it turned out! Here’s what one side of the space looked like before…
…and here’s what that same side looks like now!
So pretty, right? 😀 I love that she kept the existing tile, and how she concealed the washer/dryer. (I’m assuming it’s one of those machines that does both?)
Those shelves (and the way she decorated them!) are super cute too!
In her blog post, Kristine wrote, “It can be tempting to throw the baby out with the bathwater, though as you can see, I kept the cabinets, tiles and flooring and dragged them all out of the past with some fresh and thoughtful “accompaniments”. Breathing new life into the existing elements in a room is one of my favourite ways to redecorate. I’m so, so proud of the way this space came together. Mum and I did all of the work ourselves and chuckled from time-to-time about our new careers in plumbing and carpentry!”
Kristine shared many more photos of the space over at her blog if you’d like to swing by her place for the full tour. She also mentioned that she’ll be posting a follow-up post that talks about all the where’d you get it/how’d you make it info, so be sure to stay tuned for all that good stuff too!
And if you have a few extra seconds, and you’d like to support Kristine in the Angie’s List competition (the winner gets an additional prize!), just click on the washing machine graphic below to cast a vote. It’s literally just two clicks and your done…no logging in or anything extra like that:
Happy weekend, friends!
