{SUYL Home Tour: Laundry Room}

Welcome back Show Us Your Life folks!  Today's link up on Kelly's Korner is bonus rooms/playrooms, but since I don't have one of those I am going to be a rebel & show y'all my laundry room {because I love it that much}!

When I first moved into my house, I knew I wanted to go "bold" in there.  I had seen navy walls on Pinterest & loved navy it was! And I did love the navy for almost 2 years.  Then one day, I was scrolling through Instagram & came across a laundry room that was painted black & it was love at first sight.  I have a wall of white painted built-ins {one of the things that sold me on this house} and my washer & dryer are white so I was convinced I could pull it off.

Thankfully Sherwin Williams was running a 40% off sale that week so I went in on a Friday & purchased a gallon of Tricorn Black paint.  I came home that night & painted and y'all - I am in LOVE.  I am absolutely thrilled with how it came out. {once again, it's a hard room to photograph since it doesn't get any natural light}

I added a wooden shelf above the washer & dryer to hold the necessities and a new rug {from Ikea}.  A few new accessories & I think it's perfect!
If you are on the fence about painting a room a dark and/or bold color - go for it!!  Don't get me wrong, I love the light & bright feel of white...but I'm loving the black. You can also read about my DIY laundry basket here.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Next week is kitchens so be sure to stop back by.  Follow me on Instagram as well!
