I used to hate this dual-purpose room until I gave it a fresh farmhouse update! Now this farmhouse laundry room/ bathroom is one of my favorite spaces.

I feel like I did a pretty good job keeping myself in check (read: refrained from doing all.the.projects) before our home study.  I may or may not have scrubbed the bathtub on my hands and knees the night before… but I managed to only take on one “remodel” project.  That project was our farmhouse laundry room/ hall bathroom.

Honestly, there wasn’t much to this farmhouse laundry room makeover; it’s amazing what a little paint can do for a room!  You might even recognize the new color; hint: it’s the same paint I used for the walls in our master bedroom.  With that fresh coat of paint, I moved around some decor from other rooms and purchased some new knobs.

I mean, they are kind of amazing, right?  I found these beauties at HomeGoods.  They’re not quite as gold in person and I love the feminine, lacey design.  I went with brushed nickel for the other fixtures and found a mirror (Ross) that helped tied them both together.  I’ve loved the mixed metal look in our bedroom and I think it worked nicely here as well.

This basket was a clearance find at Kohl’s a few years back (before farmhouse was cool) that I had in the laundry room at my old house.  Back when I actually had an entire room dedicated as a laundry room.  A bright yellow laundry room, at that.  Crazy how much your style can change in just a few years time.

I found that ‘Laundry Room’ sign at a thrift shop a few towns over for $10.  (I also got the most amazing red coat there.)  Strangely, I think it is that little sign that helped me come to terms with my dual-purpose room as it defined the space a bit more.

I was hesitant to paint a small room a dark color, but I knew the window would help bring in light, along with the white shelves and appliances to offset the dark.  The window is actually just a half, but I used a full-length curtain to create the illusion that it is larger than it is.  (The shelf decor is Ross or Kohl’s clearance.)

James installed a new faucet for me (the old one was the standard clear knobs labeled “hot” and “cold”) as well as a new light fixture.  He finished it out with a new light switch and face plates- they were previously beige.  We are slowly changing the switches/ face plates and door knobs (seriously, I have 14 DIFFERENT door knobs in my house!) as we move room to room.  It’s amazing how these simple and inexpensive changes can have such an impact.
