Laundry Room Re-Do - Before and After

Pin It

I've painted, cleaned and it's DONE

(Updated POST, added the paint color and how I used this color in my kitchen) This is post  has a life of its own. It's my number ONE pin on Pinterest and if you'd like to follow my Pinterest boards I'm HERE  My New site www.bethanndoing.com

Our little condo has a closet for the Laundry Room and I just didn't like it, plus I couldn't reach the shelf without being on my tip toes !

before and after of a laundry room closetbefore and after of a laundry room closet
 I moved everything out of our little kitchen dining area,
 we don't use it. Than went to Lowe's Want to see a grown man shiver in his work boots ?
Walk into Lowe's with a yellow legal pad, tape measure and pictures from pinterest ! ! ! Yes, it was a metal tape measure not cloth, I've learned, they will laugh out loud at you, I know I did it....once.

  before and after of a laundry room closet

My drying time was less with the cabinets in the air conditioning, in the garage and in Florida, it would have taken quite a bit longer for them to dry.

white nylon paint brushes
Trick ONEI get the better brushes HERE, NOT the cheap ones from Lowe's.
They wash great and no hairs come out like the other ones !
brown paper sack as sand paper 
Trick TWO is a BROWN paper sack, paper is the finest sand paper. BUT, it must be a BROWN sack. The only one I had in the house was from a little quilt shop in McKinney, TX, Stitched with Love, their site.  Cut the sack open and I like to fold it in and use just as sand paper, it makes the paint and wood soft ! 
 painted kitchen cabinets

This is the "BEFORE" of the closet

Everything out ! CLEANED and Taped walls
How often do you move your washer and dryer?
I'm going to have to do it more often...it's been 5 years for me. And, from the looks of it, too LONG !
LOVE the Blue

This is the "AFTER" I love it. Besides time this was not that expensive of a project, cabinets and paint about 150 dollars, 
I like !

  4. I love your laundry closet! I too have one in my condo in Lake Placid Fl . I have a coupe questions. Did you leave the doors on after you were done? Also did you use the paper bag to sand the cupboards before or after painting or both? I plan on replacing my washer & dryer as mine is too noisy being close to the living room. I may get the front loader and put a counter over both. Thank you for your idea and for sharing how you did it.
