YOU GUYS! It’s here!! The big reveal!! I am SO PUMPED. Honestly, I can not believe how quickly the last five weeks has flown by. Between THREE out of state trip and two sinus infections I wasn’t sure I would make it, but—it happened! 🙂

To appreciate the lovely afters, let’s take a walk back down memory lane at what we started with:
to rephrase what I said it on week one….the SAD BANANA laundry room in all it’s brown and yellow glory! 😀
So much better, right? 🙂 This week I addressed a massive need in our laundry—a drop zone for our stuff. Maybe some of you can relate, but it’s not common for us to have a mad, massive scramble for our keys, bags, shoes, etc. In my free 8 week cleaning e-course, I talk about creating system to set you up for success- well, this is mine. I’m including a full source list at the bottom!
The hooks are from Target- they have several wood rails to choose from and multiple hooks and baskets that you can add onto them. Of course I had to go with the rustic and gold combo to create the perfect landing zone for cardigans, keys, mail and bags. (You can find the rail here, hooks here and baskets here and here).
I also wanted to create a spot to keep our most frequently worn shoes and a spot to place things like library books so I’d remember to grab them on my way out. After two solid weeks of searching, I found these benches on line and two of them fit perfectly in the area I wanted.
I wasn’t super content with the blasé cushions that came on them, so when I had the opportunity to partner with the Leather Hide Store, a family owned, wholesale upholstery leather supplier. I LOVE working with family-owned companies that sell quality items. They have so many gorgeous leathers and finishes, but I had to go with the Montana Buckskin for it’s gorgeous color and finish.
I’ll have a detailed tutorial on how I did the upholstery later, but isn’t it absolutely gorgeous? I wish you all could come through the screen and touch how soft it feels. It’s so amazing…honestly I take a lot longer to put on my shoes now than necessary! 😛
I also added new cabinet pulls- isn’t that blue pretty? It brings out the color in the wallpaper. I also took the opportunity to hang these two vintage washboards that I’ve had for awhile.
And what good reveal post doesn’t have a few before and after photos? Check these out!!! :O
Here’s a complete source list for everything we added:
Paint (walls & cabinets) – super white from Benjamin Moore
Washboard – thrifted, similar here
Light fixture – Franklin Industrial bronze lighting fixture from Lamps Plus
Removable wallpaper Summit Bonnie Christine from Wallternatives
Wooden rail, hooks & baskets – all from Target
Leather upholstery – Montana Buckskin from Leather Hide Store
Dog food canister – Home Goods, similar here
I want to give another HUGE thank you to the amazing companies that partnered with me to make my laundry dreams come true! I can’t recommend each of these enough- please check them all out by clicking on their logo. And, of course, a big thank you to Linda and all the bloggers participating in the One Room Challenge for the encouragement and motivation.

Tanya @ Mom's Small Victories
This is AMAZING! Our cabinets and floors are already all white throughout the house but this room is stunning. Definitely gives me some ideas to update our laundry room. I’d love the bench to put shoes on since our laundry room is the first room when you come in from the garage. Stopping by from LouLou Girls and hope you’ll linkup with us too at Small Victories Sunday Linkup, open all week!
