A special thanks to Sherwin-Williams for providing the paint to complete this project!

I've always wanted a pretty laundry room, and I finally have one!! Back in March, I first started on this project, and it has definitely come a long way! It started out with wire shelves and absolutely no storage, and it's now a heavenly modern farmhouse laundry closet. I look at the before pictures, and I can't believe it actually used to look like that.

When we had our house built, they put those standard wire shelves in every closet, and so far, we've taken them out of the laundry room and our master walk-in closet, because we can't stand them! There is nothing pretty about them. haha!

I think the funniest thing about this project is that it was one of the last projects I completed before I found out I was pregnant. I remember standing on the dryer using the nail gun to install the shiplap, and then painting, and going, "I don't feel so well...". haha! Turns out, I was nauseaous for a really good reason!

Once we installed the shiplap, I patched the nail holes, sanded, and painted it SW-7005 Pure White by Sherwin Williams. The side walls are SW-7029 Agreeable Gray, which is the same color that's pretty much throughout our home.

Adding this (affiliate link) cabinet from Lowe's was the best decision ever. Not only is it super afforable, it added so much needed storage. We added the same hardware that is on our kitchen cabinets, so it actually looks identical to our kitchen & bathroom cabinets.

After everything was installed and painted, I added a bead of caulk along the sides of the shiplap to close any gaps where it met the cabinet and wall. A little caulk makes a huge difference when finishing a project.

I got my cute wash & fold sign from the Magnolia line at Target. The wood shelf is from Target, too!  Mine is a couple years old and from our old apartment, so the color of the wood is the older version's color, but we bought the new pine color for our kitchen and love, love it!

Chris designed the wash symbols sign, because the wall need just a little something more. I thought it was the perfect addition, plus, it's functional, too!

There ya have it! I'm so happy I was finally able to get this reveal up on the blog.
Stay tuned--I'll be sharing our guest bedroom next, then our living room (we finally got our built-ins finished!!!), and the room that everyone is asking to boy's nursery!
