Inspiration for our laundry room makeover, including vintage coastal decor.
Years ago, I used a stencil and painted our laundry room floors. I shared the entire process here. I hoped to replace the tiles by now, but with the pandemic and a change in my work schedule, having them replaced is not a priority or in the budget at the moment. While I loved the floors, I have grown tired of the print and decided to paint them, again. I also decided to give the laundry room a small makeover, with affordable changes! Here are my “band-aid” fixes for this vintage coastal laundry room themed makeover!

I love the look of slate tile floors and plan to achieve that look by using Rustoleum Home Floor paint. I’m hoping that I can paint over our stenciled tile and put down a large rug to mask any texture leftover from the stencil.
I plan on painting the walls Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore. It is one of my favorite white paints and I have used it in several areas of our home. I also plan on installing vertical shiplap or board and batten on one long wall with hooks and a wall mount drying rack.
We have a Formica Laminate countertop in the laundry room and I hope to replace it with a simple butcher block countertop. I considered making my own countertop, but it was too difficult and not exactly what I wanted. Here are a few countertops that I love!
For decor, I am using a vintage rug runner from Six Vintage Rugs. This rug is slightly moody and it will compliment the darker floors. I am replacing the hardware with simple brushed brass cabinet knobs. I will also incorporate vintage coastal art prints into the design. Finally, I will add live plants and chunky baskets to complete the room.
I keep asking Santa for a new washer and dryer set, but I don’t think he is receiving my letters! I’ll keep asking, though. Stay tuned for the fun progress as this room transforms!
