Oh boy, am I glad we gave our laundry room a makeover! Looking at these old images gives me goosebumps. No wonder I hated to do laundry!

DIY // Laundry Room Transformation

This makeover was fairly simple and took us about 3 days in total.

Here is the list of items we used:

How to fix a knock-down textured wall:

Step 1.

We literally ripped everything out. The old shelves didn’t want to come off easy, and I don’t have a patient husband! Before I knew it, half the texture was ripped off…


Step 2.

Repair the area! The Homax wall texture spray was amazing and I achieved a knock-down texture with ease. All I had to do, was spray it in a circular motion, let it dry for about 5-10 minutes, and knock down the sprayed area with a knockdown knife or a plastic putty knife.


Step 3.

I let everything dry overnight, and started painting the next day.


Step 4.

I sanded the plywood, then stained and sealed it. To complete the project I used some of my leftover Waterlox Original Sealer to seal the plywood.


Step 5.

We made the wall shelves, the cabinet between the washer & dryer, and the door for the cabinets because I had leftover wood from another project.

I also painted all the shelves, and cabinets I made and hung an iron board hanger on the door.
