    What’s the fabulous silver wallcovering in the laundry room?

  • Amy

    Sarah! Your basement looks fantastic! I’m so impressed at how much you got done and how well. That glittery wall in the laundry room would make me smile too! How did you do it?

    My home improvement list includes EVERYTHING. I just closed on July 19th. Officially, the next move is painting the master bedroom and moving in! We’ve been trying to paint, clean, and organize without actually living there and it’s almost impossible. We are going to keep working at it to make sure we get all of the painting done, though.

    Sarah this looks fabulous! Congratulations!

    Marci – it’s a tile. You can actually get a sheet from Home Depot that gives the affect without beaucoup $$:

    Thanks Amy! It was 3 years in the making – so I am not sure about getting it all done speedily! More like FINALLY! πŸ™‚ The glittery wall is metal tile. You can get a sheet of faux metal tile at Home Depot for a cheaper version too. πŸ™‚

    CONGRATULATIONS!! A new home is always so exciting. Just remember – it’s a marathon, not a sprint. It took us 3 years to get to these projects… You’re right to focus on painting – nothing, and I mean NOTHING, transforms a room like paint. Have fun making it your own and remember to be kind to yourself when it comes to expectations of getting “everything” done. πŸ™‚

    Thanks so much Suzy! Some days I think I should have put a disco ball instead of a light in the laundry closet. πŸ˜‰ That, and little switch so that every time I opened the doors, ABBA would start to play!

    looks terrific, well done!! Hugs

    OMG!! I have the most dreary, horrible little laundry closet…THANK YOU for the inspiration! Your basement and Laundry look GREAT!
