I changed my laundry room wall color in November from yellow to Sherwin Williams Dover White. It was a great opportunity to change up the decor. It's still vintage but less kitschy and more farmhouse.
Here are the before and afters:
Looking in from the hallway before.
Here is the after. I painted the red bowl shelf with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White". I joined the washboards into a piece of wall art. I also painted an old ironing board top with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Cream" and hung it on the door to my kitchen.
I painted the frames on these embroidered pictures with "Old White" and hung them on the ironing board. Before.
Moving left this old spice rack got an Annie Sloan makeover in "Old White" as well. Before.
The telephone is a 1940's reconditioned wall phone that really works.
A grain sack towel hangs on a crank handle that I repurposed here.
Most of these kitschy vintage items were packed away from this before photo.
Here is the cabinet top after.
I had a large old family photo put on canvas to cover up my electric box in this before.
I added a shutter above the canvas with more old family photos in this after. The canvas was done by Canvas on Demand, and includes my grandparents, my mom and her sisters and my great grandparents circa WWII.
All of this stuff hanging or standing under the clothes bar (tension shower rod) got in the way in this before.
So the new and improved after is less cluttered and works much better.
And more cabinets for a pantry right off the kitchen. My laundry room is in the middle of my 1950's rambler and gets a lot of through traffic!
Thanks for looking at my laundry room makeover!
