The Color My World Challenge- Conclusions And Link Party

Well the challenge is over.  I didn't finish my laundry room, but I got a hell of a start.  I'd like to thank Jessamie and Suzy for putting this together.  Without this push the room would probably still be a shell of a room.

So, now to recap what I did.  I decided to do my new laundry room in black and white...and I love it!  Here's how it started.

And here it is now (so far).

We painted the walls in black and white horizontal stripes and put in black porcelain tile.  My husband made a table (franken-table) for the farm sink to sit on which I think turned out really nicely.  Originally I was thinking about doing a sink skirt, but the sink actually looks too nice now to cover it.  Props to the hubs.

He also made this drying rack.  

I made a laundry rules sign that I put over the window (which still hasn't been painted!).  The pendant is new.  I'm a bit disappointed with it though or with how it was shipped I should say.  I bought it over a year ago at One King's Lane and it didn't come with the crystal bit that hangs down.  It also doesn't look quite like the picture when I bought it.  Unfortunately I found this out a year too late.  Oh well, I still like it though.

So now we just need our washing machine/dryer to be delivered, a window treatment ( I decided on the toile with a green grosgrain ribbon trim), countertop, upper cabinets etc.  A nice list remains but I'm loving my black and white laundry room.  

Now it's time to link up.  If you've incorporated a new color into one of your rooms link up your pictures...I'd love to see them! You can link up to any of the challenger's blog posts and they will appear on all of our blogs.  We'll be picking and posting about our faves next week!

  1. Oh, that laundry room is going to rock - it's already great! I adore that sink. I love our new house, but the one thing the old one had that this one does not is a sink in the laundry room. I miss it tremendously! Great job!!

    I seriously love the stripes. I really need to find a place in my home to do those!

  3. Wow it looks great!! Especially love the tiles :)

    I love it! I think your room turned out great and still can't get over those black stripes!

  5. It looks so good!!! I love how modern the stripes are and contrasted with the farm house sink (which I completely agree doesn't need a skirt). Can't wait to see the finished product!

  12. WOW! those stripes are awesome! it looks so fabulous- love that sink against the stripes.

  13. I can't believe how much work you got done! It all looks amazing - love the stripes and the sink!
