Laundry Room Remodel, Part 1

I am so excited about making my laundry room look just the way I want it to look. I have a grand plan in mind, and can't wait to see it completed. So, here goes:

Meet My Laundry Room

When we built our home, we did construction grade with many things, as I wanted something a little more custom than the builder was providing at the time, and I also didn't want to pay the builder mark-up on things. And, I really feel like I like to be in a home for a while to get the feel for how I want it to look.

So, this is how our laundry room came, with just a big long shelf that ran from wall to wall. It was very functional, but not very cute.

I, with the help of a neighbor, cut our old kitchen table down, reattatched the legs and casing to a counter top we bought from Home Depot. It worked for a while, but I am ready for something more!

Do you see the color of paint I want to use that is on the wall in the picture above?

Here's the tear out...

It already feels more open!

My bff DL gave me this fabulous hutch! I LOVE it. I think it was made for this space. It fit within one inch! Perfect! Thanks DL! You're the best!

I don't have it decorated all the way yet, I just grabbed a few things that were floating around my house. I have to fix the one door, and get a glass panel put in the other, but other than that, it is perfect!

I have big plans for the rest of the room, including a custom piece I am having made by a local cabinet company. I thought about building it myself, but I want it to look really nice, and am not that confident in my building abilities yet.

I will be posting more pics in the future.
