Laundry Room progress (2)

I wanted to post an update on our laundry room--it's coming together soo nice! All the labor intensive stuff is done..new floor, beadboard, chair rail and base trim. The floor has even been cleaned, waxed and buffed thanks to my amazing hubby! (Flooring is Armstrong VCT tile in Classic Black and Cool White). We moved the washer and dryer upstairs a little over a week ago, and I am in heaven! Main floor laundry is soooo much better than having to go downstairs! Love love love! It was definitely worth all the work that has gone into it (mostly by hubby--not me!)

A few pics...

Looking in the door:

New cabinets, shelf from Menards, and glass canisters from Target. I used my Silhouette to make the Vinyl lettering. :)

New toilet!

I made the wreath--it's burlap, a cheap dollar store wicker wreath, and hot glue! I am hoping to post a little how-to in the next day or two. The frame was once gold, and had a nice Tuscan scene framed in it. I removed the glass, and picture, and spray painted the frame matte aluminum. LOVE!

I posted about this pictures and this vinyl here.

We want to put a utility sink, mirror, and lightstrip in this corner eventually...

And Dustin is also planning on putting in a countertop to the right of the dryer, so I will have a folding area! I can't wait! But for now it's useable, and that's the most important thing. It makes doing laundry just a teensy bit easier, lol.

A few notes:
Wall color: Key Lime Pie from Dutchboy
Beadboard color: Grey Whisper from Dutchboy
Flooring: VCT tile from Armstrong, Classic Black, and Cool White
