Utility Room finished...

Finally... a functional utility room!

Shelves & beadboard

Jack's stash...

Starfish lamp from Homegoods

Vintage gym locker

Jack's bowls & toys

My maiden name ; o )

My Grandmother's iron

School house pendant and antique hangers

Pottery Barn inspired locker cabinet

Galvenized hinges

Locker cabinet houses brooms & vaccum

Decisions, decisions...

  The utility room is 95% complete...  I just ordered a small sisal/jute rug for the floor from PB, and the left side wall has our water flex pipe system access panel on it, so we want to cover that with a chalkboard on hinges to hide the system.  I also shot an e-mail over to My Sweet Savannah to ask about a long narrow sign to prop along the back of the folding table.
  Jack is most pleased to have all of his important worldly possessions housed in one area.  Food, bowls, toys and bathing supplies fit nicely into his "nook" of the room.
  The cabinet is PB inspired from one of their overpriced catalog versions.  Theirs has numbers painted on it...we'll see if I follow their lead on that one.  The giant pins are from Ballard Designs.
  Once I finish all of the little odds & ends I will post a few more pictures.  Travis did a wonderful job of building it just the way I pictured it in my mind.  Love that man- and I'm pretty sure Jack does too!

  1. Just beautiful! Wish work got done that quickly at my house. How's the weather in your part of TX? My brother is in Huntsville and my niece is a teacher in Houston. She posted a picture on FB of the ice that collected on the front of her car while driving.

  2. We have ice here. School was cancelled for today- good thing too since they are reporting accidents left and right. Watching my husband try to scrape the ice off of his jeep so that he can go to the gym- too funny!

  3. Jack shot me an email......he says he's loving the new digs for his worldly possessions. AND he wants more treats. A lot more. Just sayin....

    LOVE the laundry room! I need you to come visit so we can chat about moving some things around in my house.

    Love you!

  4. Kristin- I would love that : o )

  5. Must say I have laundry room envy. You did a fantastic job. Love everything, especially the little tags you made. It looks like upholstery strapping ... am I right? Brilliant and so cute! I'm visiting from Be Different ... Act Normal. Hope you'll visit back. Love what you've done!

  6. Haley- Thank you so much!

    Lynn- My cousin Carolyn makes the tags. You can purchase them at her Etsy site Sweet Tea & Linen. Yes-they are upholstery strapping : o )

  7. gorgeous room - I love it...just found your blog and off to explore more of it!

  8. What a fabulous laundry room...lots of ladies are going to be jealous of this one...including moi!!!

  9. If yall were any more of a creative and handy couple, I'd just have to die.

  10. Your laundry room turned out so nice! I love the broom closet and the shelving. I need to find my grandmother's iron and put in my main level laundry room. Not sure why I hadn't thought of that!
    Dropping by from How To's Day. Hope you'll come see DD2's picture wall we did for her.
