Haven’t done a laundry room update in awhile, so I thought it was probably time!
We tackled the floor last weekend! Wooooo Hooooo!
(Also I may have discovered Instagram and forgot to take this picture with my real camera too…)
Steve has finished the mud room bench! We brought it in (it’ll still get painted) so we could fit the tile around it.
Finally, we were ready to go. We measured out a perfect angle in the center of the room, made our chalk lines, peeled off the cover on the back, and then got ready to stick. Once we got started, we were on a roll! Peel, stick, line up, stick. Super simple.
Our favorite way to make sure they were good and stuck? Some sweet dance moves.
We need to get the threshold and the trim in, but here’s a fairly accurate picture of the color of the floor. It plays off of the paint fabulously.
We brought the sink in so we could get a feel for what the space will feel like. The bench will be white and we’ll have the mudroom built up. So far, we really love it and are excited with how well it’s coming together!!
So, once we were stuck, we needed to seal it up before we could move the washer and dryer back in. We decided to seal to help keep the floor cleaner and keep junk from collecting in the seams between the tiles. We bought a kit at Lowe’s, followed the directions, and it was pretty simple. Be sure to wear a respirator mask for this, it’s REALLY stinky. You can find it in the vinyl tile at Lowe’s.
It’s hard to see the difference, but you can see the unsealed lines on the left are white looking while the others and filled in and glossy.
The only other thing we added? A new light fixture! I’m kind of obsessed with it. I love the geometric shapes of it and it provides quite a bit of light.
All in all, I’m happy with the progress we’ve made so far and can’t wait to get the mudroom section painted and installed so we can get this room wrapped up. It looks SO much better already!
Anyone else forgotten to update their blog lately? Play with stickers? Stand in your laundry room and admire how pretty it is?? do tell!
