Last week I mentioned that I have the sudden urge to fancy up my little laundry closet. Yesterday I decided to go ahead and start painting the back wall. I have quite a few cans of paint in my garage from previous projects so instead of buying more, I thought I would just use some that I already had. I only had one out there that was not white or gray of some kind, so I went with this lovely shade of turquoise. I only did one coat on part of the wall, but I could tell that this was just not going to work.
A little much right? Yeah, not feeling it. In my defense, when I used it before it was not on a wall, it was not in a teeny tiny closet, and it did not look this green. Luckily I'm not out any money. So it looks like I'll be making a trip to Lowes this weekend to pick up some paint! My husband suggested I get a lovely shade of lavender, which was slightly shocking coming from him. I may or may not be taking his suggestion to heart. I know I can't be the only one who gets some major painters regret every once in a while, right?
Even though I had a minor set back, I still got something accomplished for operation laundry room. I needed to get some sort of storage boxes, but those can be a little pricey if you want anything remotely attractive. Instead of buying some, I made my own with a couple old baby wipe boxes and paint.
It's already looking better and more organized in there, as long as you can look past the unfinished, funky color on the wall.
