Laundry Room

Have you ever heard of the Rust-O-Leum Cabinet Transformations?  They also make a countertop version.  One of the last things "oak" to go in our house was in the laundry room.  Here is what it looked like when we moved in:

Mid-Summer progress...laundry day.  In general, the state of this room 90% of the time!
I wanted some more detail on the flat cabinet so I got a sheet of beadboard at Lowes...they even cut it to the exact size right in the store!  It was incredibly easy to tack up and added a lot of character!
The Rust-O-Leum kit worked great! No sanding, it included everything (except the paintbrush).  The prep was the most time consuming, taping everything off and wiping down the cabinets. 
  The glazing part was the most nerve-wracking 

It came out ok though!
All clean until the piles come in...5, 4, 3, 2....Yup, that is precisely how much time I enjoyed this view...approximately five seconds. ;)
We will also be changing the countertop...the black/gray just isn't working

New hardware

The ironing board cabinet I left white...was thinking about glazing it, but glad I didn't!
Coat/shoe at your own risk ;)
New lights   
That's it...I have to give props to my sister  who recently did her ENTIRE kitchen!  That makes this look like child's play.  Perhaps she will let me do a post on that!! :)
