~ laundry room update



LOL. Here's a funny update. It's funny because the original post is dated 8/3/12. And that my friends, was over 2 years ago. There have been no real updates to the laundry room since that post. I have been too busy updating other parts of the house. The laundry room seems to move down the totem pole of priorities when dealing with a budget. I sure do despise budgets :)

So let's take a look at what has just happened in the updating department, shall we? First, if you're interested, here's the original post about updating the laundry room... (here) And here's a pic... Not bad for a before pic!


Before

The hardware was the central focus of the last post about updating the laundry room. It was all about MacKenzie-Childs knobs replacing the existing white ceramic knobs. That never happened. Now I have a new fascination. And it's called wallpaper. 

Can you imagine this gorgeous mosaic wallpaper in the laundry room? 


I'm super obsessed with it in every color...


(here or here)


Except wallpaper is still not in the budget. But I'll tell you what is! KNOBS! Check these bad boys out..

I kept the MacKenzie-Childs knob we brought from our first house.



I love them so much! They add a little punch to the room, but it's really all about preparing for the wallpaper. I may even paint the cabinets! 


As a side note, I decided the parchment MacKenzie-Childs tray that is made of wood, and has caught fire multiple times while cooking, was not a good candidate for over the stove top. 



I brought back the blue and white platter from the laundry room...

I love it! Bonus: It doesn't catch on fire!


Baby steps people. Baby steps...

I love that mosaic wallpaper. What is it called and by whom?

I love that wallcovering too but paper can be so expensive these days. Love what you did here!

I also want to know what the mosaic wallpaper is? Can you tell us?

Susan and Melissa, I included 2 links to the wallpaper in the post! - it's a Scalamandre called Mikonos.. Check out the pair of links I included for a cheaper version! XO Jan
