Laundry Room Update: Making Progress!

One of our home goals this year is to finish our laundry room!  It's more like laundry room/mud room and it gets ALOT of traffic since this is the entrance we use most.  This room was pretty scary when we bought this house and needed a lot of work. So far it's been painted, new tile put down, the red chandelier hung and an entry way system made. (And yes, I've been keeping most of it a secret until the big reveal!!)  Here's a few pics of what part of the laundry room looked like when we bought it:




Very soon after we bought the house we took down those shelves.  For two years I've had no storage in the laundry room and the top of the dryer was always cluttered. I was SO thrilled because last week on my hubby's day off he completely surprised me and started working on the cabinets in there!!  The doors still have to be painted and there will be open shelving between the two cabinets.  I'm so excited that we are making progress!

Instead of making or buying cabinets for the laundry room, we just used the wall cabinets that were in the kitchen when we bought this house.  See the cabinets above the sink?  They are ugly, but we are just using what we already have and making it work. (This was the kitchen before...scary!!  You can see more of what it looks like now in our home goals post.) Paint sure is a wonderful thing, isn't it?? =)
Yes, I know this picture has nothing to do with laundry rooms or cabinets and such, but Lucy-loo is growing so fast and I just had to share.  And hey, since we're on the topic of home improvement, she definitely is the BEST home improvement project EVER. =)

Anyways... any projects underway at your house lately?  I'd love to hear about it!
