Embarking on a transformative journey in my Laundry Room, thanks to the generous sponsorship from Milton and King, who provided an exquisite black and white floral wallpaper set to redefine the aesthetic of this everyday space. Join me as I unveil the meticulous details of the process, step by step, leading up to the awe-inspiring final result!
Laundry Room Before: A Blank Canvas
Our new build home, less than a year old, offered a clean slate for the laundry room. We opted for simplicity during the initial build, reserving the room for a personal touch. As a mother of 7, efficiency in this space is not just a preference but a necessity. The goal is to convert this room into a visually appealing and practical haven for functionality.
Dream/Vision Board Planning
Guided by a meticulously crafted dream/vision board, I established a clear roadmap for the makeover. This pre-project planning ensured my vision remained focused throughout the process, creating a harmonious blend of style and utility.
1. Prep the Space
The initial step involved actively clearing the space and preparing the walls for the impending transformation. Removing the builder-grade shelf was crucial, making room for upcoming storage solutions and a fresh new look.
2. Bead-board Wall Treatment
Opting for bead board wall panels from Lowes, I strategically cut them in half to cover only the lower portion. The installation process included using a stud finder, applying liquid nails, and actively securing the panels in place with a nail gun. The addition of a chair rail just above the bead board provided a finishing touch, seamlessly tying the elements together.
3. Painting the Space
In the priming, sanding, and painting process, the walls came to life. The color choice of Cherry Taupe by Sherwin Williams added a subtle yet distinctive feminine touch.
As an avid DIY enthusiast, I recently had the pleasure of transforming my laundry room with the exquisite Milton and King black and white floral wallpaper. The entire process, from selection to application, has been an absolute delight, and I’m eager to share my experience.
Choosing the Perfect Design
The journey began with Milton and King’s sponsorship, and I must say, their collection is a design enthusiast’s dream. I engaged my Instagram audience in choosing between four distinct wallpapers, and the “Flora” design emerged as the clear winner. The intricate details of the floral pattern in graphic black and white perfectly complemented the envisioned aesthetic for my space.
Ease of Application
Armed with traditional wallpaper paste from my local hardware store, I embarked on the application process. To my pleasant surprise, the Milton and King wallpaper proved incredibly user-friendly. Using a foam roller, I generously applied the paste to the wall, allowing me to easily maneuver the paper for precise alignment of seams and corners.
A Novice’s Triumph
Being a first-time wallpaper user, I approached the installation with a mix of excitement and trepidation. However, the straightforward application process, coupled with the clear instructions provided by Milton and King, made the experience surprisingly smooth. Using a vinyl tool, I effortlessly smoothed out any bumps or bubbles, achieving a flawless finish.
Durability and Longevity
It’s been several weeks since the installation, and I’m thrilled to report that the Milton and King wallpaper has exceeded my expectations. The paper looks as impeccable as it did on the day of installation, with no signs of wear or compromise. The traditional paste application has proven to be a durable choice, standing up to the demands of a high-traffic area like the laundry room.
Conclusion: A Wallpaper Love Story
In conclusion, my experience with Milton and King’s wallpaper has been nothing short of a love story. The “Flora” design, combined with the ease of traditional paste application, has transformed my laundry room into a space of timeless elegance. I highly recommend Milton and King for their exceptional designs, quality, and user-friendly products. If you’re considering a wallpaper makeover, look no further – Milton and King have truly won my heart.
