Laundry Room Progress (Half Way there!)

Thank you for all the support and encouragement on my little laundry room project. It is really coming along! I love the stripes on the ceiling and Justin hung my antique chandelier last night!!! Yay!

You might remember, I found this crystal and brass chandy at an estate sale several months ago.
A little unusual in a laundry room, I know, but that 's the part I like! :) It adds a lot of character and history with everything being 'new' in here. Besides, I'm the only one that uses the laundry room, and a little bling never hurt my feelings.

I have such a love affair with any light fixture I meet, I couldn't believe anyone would give this baby up......right up until I started cleaning it. 30 crystals and 45 minutes later, I figured out why the elderly couple I bought it from would eighty-six it.
But she's mine now.

You might notice I selected a different paint color...I went two shades lighter than my original choice. Even though I have used Schooner before (I painted a dresser), I think it was just a little too moody for a laundry room. In a walk-in closet, yes, a bedroom, perhaps...but I want this room to be super peppy.....

....and it is.

So what is there left to do?

-Install center cabinet (I have to have Justin's help with this)

-Install hanging rod

-Install knobs on cabinets

-Install flooring

Then it will be ready to move appliances back in and accessorize!

( Yes, I started filling the cabinets already, the kitchen is SUCH a mess right now, I had to do it :)

I'm installing the flooring by myself, wish me luck, I've never done it before! :)

I'll be back with a reveal soon!

P.S. I hit 2000 readers this week, I am so grateful you are here! Thank you!
