What are you working on? 9/10
So the what are you working on post seemed to be interesting....would you guys like to keep it going like every week? It's something we could do so we can share our progress and get some inspiration to try new things or finish up our own works in progress?
This week I am working on the laundry room! My laundry room was cream with white wainscot and trim and I threw in Prim antiques with hunter, navy and burgundy accent colors. I liked it, but I didn't LOVE it. (I have redone this area 4 times already, this is the 5th in the last 7 years! I just can't seem to get it right!)
Well, I have grown to love black distressed furniture and cabinets and I just happend to come across a quart of mis-tinted paint at W-M that was black. I bought it because I use a lot of black paint and figured it would get used. Last Thursday DD, 4, and I went to the thirft store and I found a gold and black valance for 50Â¢ and I decided to do the black cabinets and go for a black, gold and red laundry area. I painted the cabinets Saturday night while DH was at the Penn State v. Notre Dame game and then I started repainting over signs and things I made for the laundry room so that they matched the theme. On Sunday afternoon I decided to dig out the light tan (Bleached Wheat) paint that I had from the other hallway in our mobile home and use that in the laundry. I removed the screws in the wall that I have been covering up for the last few years and decided to use the joing compound to texturize the walls around the washer and dryer because they were so bad looking! Now, the room is painted tan and I have the black cabinets, most of my signs repainted, my curtain up...just have a few more things I want to do yet and I SOOO love it! The best part is, so far the room has only cost me 50Â¢....the valance! Everything else I have on hand :) I even had light tan rugs to throw down!
Here are two befores...
