Eek! I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be participating in my very first One Room Challenge! If you're not familiar with the ORC, it is a biannual event held in the spring & fall where bloggers and designers transform a space within 6 weeks and share the process along the way. We guest participants will share our weekly progress every Thursday up until the final reveal day in May!

One of the reasons I started this blog was to document & share all of our home projects just like this. You can find more behind the scenes happening on my Instagram, as well!
One of the first things to go is the door. It just barely opens all the way so by removing it, that'll free up wall space for storage and/or decor. We plan to build a herringbone sliding door in the hallway that will double as an accent piece for the stair landing. (We'll keep the door in the garage in case any future buyer wants the door back on.)
Standard white wire shelving serves as the main storage space in the laundry room - we'll be removing it and building a faux marble shelf with gold brackets that will go just above the washer & dryer. I'm also thinking about installing some sort of curtain or tension rod higher up toward the ceiling for clothes that need to be hung to dry.
And for those curious, that Waffle House box is from moving; there are some random things in this space, but a stash of syrup isn't one of those things.
The plastic bin on the floor is where all the clean laundry goes after coming out of the dryer while awaiting folding day until it's final destination: the dresser drawers or the closet. It's quite the process...
The only other storage area: a small shelf which holds random household objects. We'll be removing this and adding decor and/or storage.
Confession: I love the ease of cleaning and the feel of linoleum flooring on my feet as opposed to cold tile, however, it's as builder basic beige as it gets and I'm excited to replace it with the most beautiful vinyl peel and stick floor tiles.
