FROM UTILITY ROOM TO GLAM CAVE!

missjessFebruary 6, 2013
Our home has an exterior laundry room that was desperate and bleak: exposed wooden beams (not the dreamy kind), unfinished concrete walls and a maze of electrical pipes everywhere. I convinced my husband to let me clean in up, and in exchange, I would make it a man cave. I now present to you [a classic bait-and-switch]....our GLAM CAVE!

The hot pink floor is glam indeed! Such an energetically decorated space MIGHT even make doing laundry fun.

Wow, that cluttered mess must have been a daunting task. I love the during picture that pick floor is great. I was a bit let down by the final picture (Sorry) it just seems a bit too much clutter found it's way back in. The room is a really good improvement though.

Great job! Especially with a small space! How did you do the floors? Is it concrete?

OK, pic #2 was a pleasant surprise. Pic #3 just knocked my socks off! Really well done and what a happy place to do laundry. I love your color choices in here and I think you've managed the flotsam and jetsam that go with a utility room really well.

Congrats on a job beautifully done!

I love it! The pink floors are wonderful. I think adding a curtain to cover the shelves that are full of stuff, would make the room look more complete. :)
