May the force be ever in your favor, Mr. Potter.

As I understand it, three owners of our newish house have left up this laundry room:  Quilt like stripes painted on the walls and foam sheets cut into tshirts hanging on clothes pins, and random miniature sink, long mirror.  But it just wasn't our style.  Previous owners had ten kids, so I can imagine another sink would be welcome, but we don't need a baby sink.  Maybe if it was a deep utility sink it would be different, but it had to go.  In its place we put our new mudroom!  ....only a year in the works.  Embarrassed

We started with demo of the old sink and working the pipes back into the wall.

Took out the old cabinets that wouldn't let us have the pedestals for our washer and dryer.

Mirror and shelves came down.  Primed and painted.  Granite Gray.

Found some cabinets that would fit better with our pedestals, but I wanted white.

Started a build in place bench, so it would fit perfectly to the sink size already cut into the floor.  That's all DH, I'm just the painter.

Starting the back wall.


and with everything in my house, a little Harry Potter flair.

I love it!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

The old laundry room was very cute, but you have definitely elevated it to a more adult space, even while adding a touch of whimsy. Bravo!

Gaaah, it's beautiful!  The old room was Dr. Seuss and the new is Harry Potter.  Love love love.

Do more of what makes you happy.
