It’s finally finished! (almost, lol!) But it’s definitely finished enough to give you guys the full reveal!!
You all remember the before picture, right?? Looked pretty crappy. The only things we’ve kept are the washing machine, dryer, sink and boiler. Everything else is in some junkyard.
We (or I) decided to really go to town with this redo. We spend so much time doing laundry, so why is so often that the laundry room the ugliest room in the house? We went for a modern chinoserie look where the lovely wallpaper from Osborne&Little is the guest of honor. :) We have a mix between brass and steel that I’m totally loving. The Chanel pictures are vintage, and was bought in a little market in Antibes outside Nice in France about 10 years ago. The frames were bought in antique shops.
Here you can see some of the contrast between the brass and the steel. The tray is by Danish House Doctor and was bought at Cilla Interiør in Oslo, and I LOVE it! The milk glass vases are from ebay and the brass vase from a local fleamarket and cost me about $1 (5 kr).
These deli jars from Danish Eva Solo is one of my favorite features! I wanted something different for the laundry detergent and these are just SO perfect!! They’re really good to hold with the slim “neck” and the lid is easy to remove, but is at the same time air tight.
Another favorite feature are my vintage brass pulls from ebay (of course). The soap dispenser is from Danish Lisbeth Dahl bought at Cilla Interiør in Oslo. This image also reveals what’s next on the to do list. Can you see what’s missing?? The drawers are from IKEA, with the super cheap fronts, Appläd.
The large cabinet (also from IKEA, Appläd fronts) is like my whet storage dream! I wanted some different brass pulls here, to avoid it from being too matchy matchy and these are a strong nod to the chinoserie wallpaper.
This little guy is a total favorite! I’m still trying to find the “grown up” version of it – but it’s hard to come by!
The mirror (brass frame with nails around it) is another flea market find, and was $2. The ironing board was reupholstered with this fabric that Camila posted about a while ago. (THANK you Camila!!). The little lucite box is from IKEA and was almost free. (also around $2-3)
The flooring is another favorite of mine. Remember, this is a laundry room – my original plan was to get striped vinyl, but it was to expensive, so we opted for black+white tiles. Looks pretty chic too, doesn’t it? The light fixture was also a $2 flea market find that was brass, but I spray painted it moss green. The Manila/Bamboo chair (also flea market find, $20) got a coat of black spray paint.
Other things that I forgot to mention… We painted the ceiling glossy white and installed floor heating. (which I LOVE!!) You might have noticed that I don’t have a laundry basket – I do, but it’s totally unchic! Am looking for a new one!
Hope you liked it!!
