if you follow my blog you know what this is pretty much the ONLY TIME THAT ANYTHING GETS DONE IN MY HOUSE.
so yeah. i get a little bit excited.
i have participated in the last three rounds of the one room challenge, and was one of the featured designers in the last round when i transformed my teenage daughter olivia's room:
it started as this:
you can see more pictures of this project here
the year before, i finished my mini office:
which started out here:

and my daughter charlottes room:
which started out like this:

this time around, i will be tackling this area:
as you can see, my mudroom, laundry room and back hall closet are VERY compact spaces. my laundry room could almost be listed in the guinness book of world records are the smallest laundry room EV-uh.
seriously, its pretty tiny.
this is the view looking into the hall from the kitchen:
back towards the kitchen:
the rug and light fixtures will be staying.
we just got a dog, and i was totally unprepared for the amount of STUFF they need and space they take up!! i am hoping to find a better place for the dog crate...
and....because i want you to get a real sense of the true nature of whats really happening in behind those closed closet doors:
right now, there is a freestanding bookcase and everything else is literally just thrown in there.
its a disaster.
my goal for these spaces is to dress them up with some custom cabinetry,
pretty hardware, loads of storage, some special ceiling treatments and a little bit of wallpaper.
i am still in the midst of planning the final details of this space, but here are some of my inspiration pictures:
stay tuned! i am hoping to have some drawings of the cabinetry back by next week, and i should have a solid plan for the look of everything as well!
